Have a great idea for a unique course?

We can help you get it nationally recognised

 

Do you have an idea for a course that you would like to get Nationally Recognised? Perhaps you might have a course you are currently delivering that is non-accredited and now you would like to get it recognised as a nationally accredited course?

ASQA’s role as the national vocational education and training (VET) regulator is to accredit courses that may be offered and/or delivered by registered training organisations (RTOs). Accreditation with ASQA ensures that courses are nationally recognised and meet an established industry, enterprise, educational, legislative or community need. Check out more information from ASQA.
