It’s No Secret That Registering An RTO Can Be Difficult.

Visitors to the Australian Skills Quality Authority’s RTO registration page are greeted with phrases like: “complex process”, “high standards” and “rigorous assessment.”

It can be intimidating! The detailed and particular requirements can make for a gruelling process, but it’s certainly not impossible… especially if you have a team of experts on your side.

In order to register an RTO, you need to have the following things in place
  • Systems for managing quality across your business
  • Detailed policies and procedures to meet the Standards
  • Strategies for managing marketing and student information
  • Suitable training facilities and equipment
  • Training and assessment materials for all units and qualifications
  • Suitable and appropriate record keeping procedures and student management system
  • Experienced and qualified trainers and assessors and appropriate documentation to demonstrate this
  • Strategies for ensuring ongoing professional development of your trainers
  • Strategies for engaging industry in the development and delivery of your courses
  • Detailed Training and Assessment Strategies for each qualification you intend to deliver
…and much more!
