Extension of accreditation

​​​​Courses are accredited for a specified period and have an expiry date. Extension of course accreditation may be granted in exceptional circumstances where it is not practical to apply for reaccreditation. Exceptional circumstances include situations where:

  • the accredited course is due to expire shortly before a transition from the accredited course to a training package qualification
  • there is a delay with training package endorsement
  • the accredited course is linked to a licence and the related legislation is under review and not expected to be finalised before the course expires

Extensions are granted for short periods, and usually not for more than 12 months. Applicants must clearly demonstrate the circumstances that warrant consideration and each application will be considered on its merits. Applications lodged after the expiry of the course will not be considered.

If an application for reaccreditation is lodged at least 3 months before the course expiry date, accreditation of the existing course continues automatically until the application is decided. There is no need to submit an application for extension of accreditation in this case.

The application form is available from this page, and related documents can be accessed from the Policies and​ Guidelines page.

Please email completed applications to taccourseaccreditation@des.wa.gov.au
