VAC 7.5

VET accredited courses confirm recognition to be given to the course by licensing, regulatory, professional or industry bodies where applicable.

Where the outcomes of a course are recognised by a professional or industry body, information is to be included in the course document at Section B: 4.3. For example, successful completion of the course may be recognised in the form of membership to a professional body being granted.

You must submit evidence from the relevant body confirming the recognition with your course accreditation application.

Where the outcomes of a course satisfy licensing or regulatory requirements, information is to be provided in the course document at Section B: 4.4.

You must provide evidence to demonstrate that the relevant industry regulatory stakeholders have been engaged in both:

  • consultation activities (to establish a need for the course), and
  • the course development process.

You will also need to provide evidence from the industry regulator confirming the regulatory outcome can be achieved upon completion with your course accreditation application.

If course completion may result in membership or licensing/regulatory requirements being met, ASQA’s Accredited course document template requires you to provide evidence confirming any recognition given to the course by professional, industry or licensing/regulatory bodies.
