Change scope of registration

'Scope of registration' defines the services, training package qualifications or competencies that a training provider is approved to deliver.

Change to scope of registration

Providers can apply to add or remove qualifications, units of competency or accredited courses through asqanet. A change to a scope of registration may also be necessary when a training package product is revised.

Approval from ASQA is required before any changes are made to the qualifications or units of competency.

Requests to amend or withdraw an application can be made by emailing Amendments and withdrawals can be made if a performance assessment has not commenced.

Changes to scope of new providers

If your provider has been registered for less than two years, you will need to provide additional information when applying to change your scope of registration, including:

We assess change of scope applications made by new providers through a performance assessment.


Fees may apply for changing scope of registration, including for performance assessments, if required. For a full list of ASQA fees and charges, please read Guide to ASQA fees and charges.
