From 1 July 2014, equivalent training package products (qualifications and/or units of competency) will be automatically added to your scope of registration without requiring an application or a fee.

This process applies to all ASQA registered training organisations (RTOs) with a training package product listed on their scope that an Industry Skills Council has superseded with a new training product that it has deemed equivalent.

On 1 July 2014, ASQA will update all training products on an RTO’s scope that are in transition, having been superseded by a new equivalent product in the last 12 months. There will be no application required or fee payable.

From 1 July 2014, ASQA will apply this process for all future training package updates. Those providers that do not wish to have the new, equivalent product on scope can choose to opt-out through a simple application process. There is no fee for this. This approach supports the Australian Government’s policy of minimising regulatory burden on Australian businesses.
