Minor changes to training package streamlined for RTOs

Commonwealth Media   |   6 June 2014

Industry Minister Ian Macfarlane has announced what he says is the first in a series of changes to reduce red tape in the Regulatory jigsaw 2vocational education and training (VET) sector, making it easier for registered training organisations to manage changes to training packages from 1 July.

Macfarlane said that when a training package qualification is changed, but the vocational outcome remains the same, training providers will no longer need to apply to their regulator or pay a fee to update their registration.

This is a common sense approach developed as a direct result of listening to industry and training providers and their ideas for reform. Minor updates to training packages do not represent a significant risk to a training provider’s capacity to deliver.
