Fees for initial registration

There are fees and charges associated with both initial registration and ongoing registration as an ASQA-regulated provider.

Application lodgement fee

This fee covers the costs of ASQA’s initial check of your application’s completeness and the risk assessment of your application.

When you complete your 'Application for initial registration' in asqanet, asqanet will generate an invoice for the Application lodgement fee. ASQA will not consider your application until the lodgement fee is paid in full.

The application lodgement fee is $800 per application.

Once ASQA has commenced the ‘completeness check’ you will not be eligible for a refund of the application lodgement fee.

Application assessment fee

This fee covers the costs of ASQA’s assessment of your organisation’s compliance with the Vocational Education and Training (VET) Quality Framework and the conditions of registration prescribed in the National Vocational Education and Training Regulator Act 2011. This includes a comprehensive assessment of your application.

If your application is complete and no fit and proper person or financial viability issues are identified, asqanet will generate an assessment fee invoice. ASQA will not continue assessing your application until the assessment fee is paid in full.

The application assessment fee is $8000.

The application assessment fee will not be refunded once it has been paid.

Annual registration charges

If your application to become registered as a new training provider is successful, you will be required to pay ASQA’s annual registration charges.
