VET: New AQTF Standards now in effect

​New Australian Quality Training Framework (AQTF) Standards for Accredited Courses (the Standards) came into effect on 23 March 2021.

The Standards contain updates to the course accreditation template. Section C of the course accreditation template is now broken into two parts:

  • unit of competency
  • assessment requirements.

If you are a course owner or developer who has commenced development of a course, please refer to the updated standards, templates and application forms, which the VRQA have developed to ensure new courses meet the Standards.

All accreditation applications submitted must be in the VRQA course accreditation forms and templates format
