The registration period for RTOs is five years. An application for renewal of registration must be submitted to TAC by your RTO before the end of this period. It is recommended you submit your application at least four months prior to expiry to allow sufficient time for review and processing. TAC sends a reminder letter six months prior.
In order to maintain registration, RTOs must comply with the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015 on an ongoing basis and operate in accordance with the relevant provisions of the Vocational Education and Training Act 1996 (WA). It is your
responsibility to ensure continuity of registration.
To renew registration with TAC, you are required to:
can submit your application for renewal of registration through RTONet or by using the above application form. Please refer to the registration application guide.
When your application is received, a desktop review is undertaken to determine if further information is required. It is at this stage the invoice for the renewal of registration application assessment fee will be sent to the applicant for payment. TAC will not continue to progress your application until this invoice is paid in full.
Once the TAC Secretariat has determined that the application requirements have been met, and the assessment fee has been paid, a risk assessment will determine whether an audit is necessary.
This flowchart provides further details on the process.
Please see our audit process for renewal of registration applications for further information on TAC audits.
Applications for renewal of registration are considered monthly by the Council.
If the application is approved, TAC will send you a certificate of registration and offering report, which outlines the units of competency, qualifications or accredited courses that your organisation is registered to deliver. This is known as the scope of registration.
If the application is not approved, TAC will notify you in writing.
