Industry Minister Ian Macfarlane has announced what he says is the first in a series of changes to reduce red tape in the vocational 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.
