The QCAA customises each audit undertaken to the particular school RTO.
Your RTO’s compliance history, and the QCAA’s detailed provider profile risk intelligence gathering, will inform the depth and scope of an audit.
The QCAA will generally conduct a compliance audit:
- within two years of initial registration,
- after a risk intelligence assessment, or
- as part of the registration application process.
This customised approach means that RTOs who demonstrate a higher risk profile, poor compliance history or poor student outcomes will be subject to deeper-level audits. In most cases, an audit will require a visit to the physical delivery site. The length of a site visit will vary based on the size of the RTO and the scope of the audit.
