The Training Accreditation Council (TAC) has released its Users’ Guide to the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015.
The guide is intended for use by those applying to become an RTO, existing RTOs, auditors and other regulatory staff. Organisations applying to become RTOs can use this guide to understand the obligations of an RTO, and develop systems and processes in preparation for submitting an application for initial registration.
Current RTOs can use the guide to understand their regulatory obligations, and to establish and maintain systems and processes that both comply with the Standards and suit the RTO and its clients and learners. RTOs can also use the guide to conduct internal reviews and guide improvement initiatives. Auditors and other regulatory staff can use this guide to help them make consistent judgements about the intent of the Standards and how RTOs can implement the Standards in ways that suit them and their learners.
