Transition notices for training packages (Vocational Education and Training)

flower arrangementIn compliance with Condition 9 – Transition to Training Packages/Expiry of Accredited Courses, AQTF Essential Conditions and Standards for Continuing Registration, registered training organisations (RTOs) are responsible for managing the transition from:

  • superseded training packages within twelve months of their published release date on training.gov.au (TGA)
  • superseded accredited courses by the date of expiry of the superseded course.

Condition 9 applies to qualifications, accredited courses and units of competency (when delivered as stand-alone units).

Since September 2013, thirteen training packages have been updated, endorsed and released on TGA. Of these training packages, six will have transition arrangements due to the equivalence of qualifications. For more information, see the table below.

The VRQA will be emailing transition notices to RTOs currently delivering the equivalent qualifications from these six training packages. To ensure that you receive the relevant transition notices please verify that your email contact details on TGA are correct. If your contact details on TGA are incorrect please refer to the VRQA website and follow the instructions to request a change to your RTO contact details.

Please note that the transition notices only apply to those RTOs whose Regulatory Authority is the VRQA.
