Information for registered training organisations (RTOs)

RTO Conversations with the General Manager
The General Manager, Skills Tasmania, holds round table discussions with Registered Training Organisations (RTOs). These are held to provide an opportunity for RTOs to discuss issues and to provide feedback regarding the Tasmanian training and workforce development system.

Approved traineeships/Apprenticeships in Tasmania
Lists all available funded, non-funded and school-based traineeship and apprenticeship qualifications in Tasmania.

Registration and compliance for RTOs
Registration is the formal approval and recognition of an organisation by a state or territory registering authority to provide nationally recognised training products/services and issue qualifications related to these products/services. This page has information and links regarding the registration process and ongoing compliance.

Issuing certificates and statements of attainment
Information for RTOs about the issuing of certificates and statements of attainment, including promotion and publicity of training

Reporting and payment information
All providers with students funded by Skills Tasmania, under certain training programs, must submit data, otherwise referred to as AVETMISS. Laurel, a purpose built application that manages funding agreements and processes RTO payments for the delivery of such training, aims to streamline business processes so that claims for payment are integrated with mandatory data reporting.

Endorsed Registered Training Organisation System
Registration as a Skills Tasmania Endorsed RTO is the gateway for an RTO's eligibility to apply for Skills Tasmania programs for the delivery of government subsidised training in Tasmania. RTOs who wish to deliver Tasmanian Government funded training must apply to be endorsed before applying for any of the programs managed by Skills Tasmania and before entering into a Skills Tasmania Agreement.

Funding/subsidies for training
RTOs, both public and private, can apply to deliver a range of qualifications or training programs. Various contestable programs fund the delivery of this training, which, together with eligibility requirements, are all outlined. Eligibility for funding is listed under each program, however, where the learner is eligible for a User Choice subsidy, then the RTO should use this funding source in the first instance.

Unique Student Identifier (USI)
(External link: Australian Government's USI website).
The USI is a tool to give students easier access to their VET records by providing accurate and comprehensive information about students' training achievements within the VET system. The USI will help build a consistent, national system for the storage of training information with benefits to students, training organisations, employers and governments.
