ASQA removes fees and appplications for 'rollover' of equivalent quals

Monday, June 9 2014

From 1 July 2014, ASQA will automatically update equivalent training package qualifications and/or units of competency on an RTO's scope of registration without requiring an application or a fee.

Industry Minister Ian Macfarlane announced the change last week as a 'common-sense approach' and the 'first in a series of changes to reduce red tape in the vocational education and training (VET) sector." The Minister said the announcement 'begins to address the broader issue of the burden on the VET sector arising from the constant updates to training packages'  (as identified as a priority by Ministers at April's COAG meeting). 

ASQA has detailed information about the change on its website, including FAQs.
