Registered training organisations (RTOs) must submit a complete application to renew their registration at least 90 days prior to the expiry date of their registration as listed on the national register, training.gov.au. This is a requirement of the National Vocational Education and Training Regulator Act 2011.
If you fail to submit a complete application at least 90 days prior to your expiry date, your registration may not be renewed.
ASQA will only consider applications to renew registration if your RTO has conducted training and assessment during its current registration period.
Applications are only considered ‘complete’ if:
- all required evidence has been submitted
- the application lodgement fee has been paid in full
- the application assessment fee has been paid in full.
ASQA completes the majority of renewal applications within six months (see FAQ).
