Amendment to the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015

Amendment to the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015

Well-qualified trainers and assessors are pivotal to the success of Australia's VET system.  In an important step to ensuring an appropriately skilled vocational education and training workforce, changes were made to the Training and Assessment Education Training Package in late 2016. 

This change prompted an amendment to the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015, and the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) Amendment 2017 have now been published.

On or after 1 April 2019 trainers and assessors must hold:

TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment or its successor

or

TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment

and one of the following:

(i)                TAELLN411 Address adult language, literacy and numeracy skills or its 

                   successor or

(ii)               TAELLN401A Address adult language, literacy and numeracy skills

and one of the following:

(iii)             TAEASS502 Design and develop assessment tools or its successor or

(iv)             TAEASS502A Design and develop assessment tools or

(v)              TAEASS502B Design and develop assessment tools.


The Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) Amendment 2017 come into effect from 6 July 2017 and are to be read in conjunction with the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015.
