Superseded qualifications

Standards: Clause 1.26, 1.27

1.26. Subject to Clause 1.27 and unless otherwise approved by the VET Regulator, the RTO ensures that:

a)  where a training product on its scope of registration is superseded, all learners’ training and assessment is completed and the relevant AQF certification documentation is issued or learners are transferred into its replacement, within a period of one year from the date the replacement training product was released on the National Register;

b)  where an AQF qualification is no longer current and has not been superseded, all learners’ training and assessment is completed and the relevant AQF certification documentation issued within a period of two years from the date the AQF qualification was removed or deleted from the National Register;

c)  where a skill set, unit of competency, accredited short course or module is no longer current and has not been superseded, all learners’ training and assessment is completed and the relevant AQF certification documentation issued within a period of one year from the date the skill set, unit of competency, accredited short course or module was removed or deleted from the National Register; and

d)  a new learner does not commence training and assessment in a training product that has been removed or deleted from the National Register.

1.27. The requirements specified in Clause 1.26 (a) do not apply where a training package requires the delivery of a superseded unit of competency.

Monitoring changes to Training Packages and qualifications

Is your RTO able to prove that it:

  • subscribes to TGA updates relevant to scope
  • subscribes to ASQA updates
Definition: Transition period

transition period means, where a training product has been superseded, removed or deleted from the National Register, the allowable timeframe within which the learner’s training, assessment, and AQF certification documentation issuance must be completed or, in the case of a superseded training product, within which the learner is transitioned into the replacement training product.

QCI considerations

  • How does your RTO monitor changes to qualifications on scope? Are you able to prove this?
  • What documented processes does your RTO have to ensure that all learners complete training and assessment in a superseded qualification within the published timeframe?
  • What documented processes does your RTO have to ensure that learners are not enrolled in a superseded qualification after the appropriate date?
  • What processes are in place to ensure that appropriate changes are made in other business systems to accommodate a change to a qualification or unit (e.g. marketing material and certification documents)?
