Apply for initial registration

High-quality vocational education and training is vital to Australia’s economic prosperity. It provides the skills and knowledge that students need to make a productive contribution to the national workforce.

Each RTO must meet a range of mandatory requirements that make sure training and assessment is delivered to the high standards expected by students, Australian industry and employers.

Your initial registration application will undergo a rigorous assessment to ensure your organisation is fully prepared to start operating an RTO that can meet the required standards.

Your organisation must not advertise, offer to provide, deliver or assess VET courses until it is registered and listed on the national register, training.gov.au.
