If ASQA approves your application for renewal of RTO registration, you will be granted a registration period of up to seven years. In some cases, ASQA grants a shorter registration period. If you are granted a shorter registration period, ASQA will explain to you the reasons for this.v
If your application is approved following a risk assessment (e.g. without an audit), ASQA will update the information in asqanet within 1-2 working days.
If your application progresses to audit, once the audit is complete, your auditor prepares a report.
Once the report is completed, ASQA commissioners or their delegates will then make a decision about your application based on the report’s recommendations. In some cases, this decision will be made by all of ASQA’s commissioners.
Once your application is finalised, you will be notified in writing and provided with a copy of the audit report. If your application is approved following an audit, the relevant information in training.gov.au will usually be updated within 10 working days of the date your application is finalised.
When your expiry date is updated on training.gov.au, if your current expiry date is in the future, the new expiry date will not appear in the ‘current’ section of training.gov.au. You will need to select ‘View History’ to view all registration periods, past, current and future.
If you intend to renew your registered training organisation (RTO) registration, you must submit a completed application to renew registration at least 90 days prior to the expiry date of your registration. Your registration expiry date is listed on the national register, training.gov.au.
If you fail to submit a complete application at least 90 days prior to your expiry date, your registration may not be renewed.
ASQA will not consider your application complete until all fees have been paid in full and the payment has cleared.
Yes―your registration continues during this period, so you are still required to comply with all your obligations as a registered training organisation (RTO), including the obligation to pay your annual registration charge.
