RTO Standards as a Business Model

Understanding the Rules of the Game. All you need to know and do to be compliant with the Standards for RTOs 2015

CompliantIndividuals who are responsible for making strategic or operational decisions in a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) (Board Members, RTO Owners, Managers, Team Leaders, Trainers, and Consultants) need to understand the regulatory framework for RTOs that establishes strategic and operational requirements. In fact, anyone working in the Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector must understand the "rules of the game".

During this full day workshop, we will review RTO's strategic and operational requirements to be compliant with the Standards for RTOs 2015, including changes that RTOs will need to make to update from previous Standards.

In this hands-on workshop, you will work with specific guidelines, policies, procedures, and resources that need to be implemented. You will receive a comprehensive matrix with clear mapping between the new and previous Standards.

Standards 2015 raised the level of requirements for the following processes:

  • Industry engagement
  • Assessment practices
  • Trainers’ and assessors’ requirements
  • Marketing activities
  • Partnership agreements
  • Recordkeeping
  • Governance, and
  • Continuous improvement 

Complying with the Standards is mandatory for all RTOs.

What past participants said about this program

  • "I would sincerely recommend employers and employees of an RTO attend this workshop. It is excellent. The facilitator Javier was so well informed, friendly and approachable that he made the hardest of processes seem very easy. The workshop itself was very well designed with the focus around the aspects of the Standards that provide RTO’s the most confusion. I now feel a lot more confident about the processes that are to be put into place to ensure compliance as an RTO. Thank you Insources."
