Short descriptions of VET courses

​​​Short descriptions of VET coursesIn the coming months, VET course accreditation and re-accreditation applications will need to include a brief description of the course.

The description and a link to the last version of the course will be made available on and the Commonwealth Department of Education and Training (DET) My Skills website.

This follows recommendations made in the Review of the alignment between the Standards for VET Accredited Courses 2012 and Standards for Training Packages, and endorsed by the Council of Australian Governments Industry and Skills Council.

The review included recommendations that the Commonwealth DET publish additional information about accredited courses on the national VET register.

We will notify course owners of further details on the timing of these changes when it becomes available.

If you have questions about information published on and the My Skills website, contact the Commonwealth DET:
