- Training organisations that apply for initial registration with ASQA must comply with the VET Quality Framework as is defined in the National Vocational Education and Training Regulator Act 2011. The VET Quality Framework includes the Standards for NVR Registered Training Organisations and conditions of registration.
- Applicants must have a thorough working knowledge of the national VET system, including the national skills framework, which includes Training Packages, the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) and the VET Quality Framework. Without this understanding, applicants will have difficulty demonstrating that they are ready to operate as an RTO and to deliver quality training and assessment.
- Applicants must be able to show they have established the foundations of a sustainable business.
Applicants must not advertise, offer to provide, deliver or assess VET courses until they are registered and listed on training.gov.au.
