School RTOs are responsible for ensuring that they are up to date with Training Package changes. Refer to the Training Package guidelines
The Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) approves Training Packages. Information about Training Packages that have been approved or are being considered by the AISC are available at www.aisc.net.au/packages.
For training products endorsed by the AISC from September 2015 until March 2016, provision has been granted to temporarily increase the period allowed to transition students. RTOs now have 18 months instead of 12 months from the date the superseding training product was released on the TGA to transition students to the updated training package qualifications or complete their studies and issue the appropriate certification.
