VAC 7.12

VET accredited courses specify specialist facilities and resources and the vocational competency requirements of trainers and assessors essential for the delivery of the course.

Your course document must provide information on any required specialist facilities and resources. This includes the requirements for trainers and assessors as specified in the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015 and, if applicable, any additional specialist vocational requirements for trainers and assessors.

It is acceptable to include the following statements in the course document rather than specifying the requirements for trainers and assessors in the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015.

  • Section B: 6.2—All assessment must be undertaken by assessors who meet the requirements stated to apply under the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015.
  • Section B: 7.2—All delivery must be undertaken by trainers who meet the requirements stated to apply under the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015.

Specialist vocational competency requirements for trainers and assessors

Accredited courses may require trainers and assessors to hold specialist vocational requirements in addition to those specified in the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015. Consider all units of competency (including imported units) to ensure that specific requirements for trainers and assessors are met. Details of specialist vocational competency requirements for assessors and trainers are to be identified in Sections B: 6.2 and 7.2 respectively. Where additional requirements for trainers/ assessors are identified for a course a justification is also to be included in each relevant section of the course document.

Specialist facilities and resources

Identify any specialist facilities and resources required for training and/or assessment in Section B: 7.2 ‘Resources’.

These may:

  • have been determined by key stakeholders in the development of the course and enterprise units, or
  • for imported units of competency, be required by the parent training package/implementation guide.

The information included in Section B: 7.2 must align with the requirements of the units’ assessment template.
