Critical Steps for Your RTO to Manage Training Package Updates

To maintain compliance, registered training organisations (RTOs) can take several steps to respond to the recent changes to these training packages. These include:

  • Staying informed: It’s important for your RTO to stay in the know about the recent changes to the training packages, including any training package transition periods and deadlines, to ensure your courses and assessments align with the latest standards. Information on the recent changes to training packages can be found at training.gov.au, while transition deadlines can be found on ASQA’s website.
  • Reviewing courses and assessments: Your RTO should review your courses and assessments considering the training package revisions to make sure they are up-to-date and meet the new standards.
  • Seeking professional development: Your RTO can invest in professional development opportunities to stay informed about the latest industry trends and best practices and to keep skills and knowledge relevant. Additionally, your trainers and assessors must upskill so they can deliver recently updated courses in their industry. Attending conferences, seminars, and workshops can also help with upskilling your staff, which can improve and update your RTO’s training delivery.
  • Using the latest or current training resources: Your RTO should invest in high-quality, compliant training resources to support your course delivery and assessments, and to ensure students receive the best possible training experience. It’s imperative that your RTO has a team that can contextualise training resources to meet the standards regarding the changes to the training packages. While your trainers can do the trick, their limited time, expertise, and experience in instructional design cannot guarantee that they will do a sufficient job of contextualising your resources.Read our RTO Contextualisation Guide to contextualising your training resources.

It’s crucial to note that the training package transitions’ deadlines are firmly set by ASQA. While your RTO is given months to prepare for the transition, not acting quickly can have marketing and enrolment repercussions, which can ultimately affect your business. It’s therefore recommended that you take the necessary steps to accommodate the recent changes to the training packages and update your course materials as soon as you can.
