Registered training organisations (RTOs) can apply to the VRQA for a standing application to assist in keeping their scope of registration up-to-date.
A standing application authorises the VRQA to amend an RTO’s scope of registration when:
- an amendment to a training package product already on the RTO’s scope of registration occurs; and
- the training package product has been determined by the relevant Industry Skills Council to be equivalent to the current unit of competency or qualification it is superseding.
RTOs wishing to lodge a standing application must complete Form E: Standing Application for Amendments to Training Packages and submit it to the VRQA. The VRQA has produced a Guide to Form E to assist RTOs with this task.
There is no fee to lodge a standing application or in relation to changes to an RTO’s existing scope of registration made under a standing application.
