To issue students with a certificate for successfully completing a qualification, your school RTO must ensure that:

  • the student is enrolled in the course
  • the student holds a USI
  • you have verified the student’s USI
  • you have maintained data that complies with Australian Vocational Education and Training Management Information Statistical Standard (AVETMISS) and that supports issuing certificates, including enough detail to identify the
    • student
    • type of qualification
    • type of certificate
    • date the qualification was completed
    • date the certificate was issued
  • the certificates use templates (available in the AQF Issuance and Replacement policy and procedure in the VET app in the QCAA Portal) that comply with Schedules 4 and 5 of the Standards as well as the AQF
  • you have a publicly available certificate replacement policy and procedure
  • you issue students with certificates within 30 business days of the student successfully completing the qualification.

Note: If necessary, you may issue a certificate after sighting and documenting confirmation that the USI registrar has granted a student an exemption.
