Add a unit of competency

School RTOs can only deliver units of competency when they are listed in their scope of registration for a particular qualification.

To add a unit of competency to a VET qualification:

  1. check if it meets the packaging rules.
  2. check if your school RTO has qualified trainers and assessors to deliver the unit.
  3. check if your school RTO will need to arrange resources for delivery or make third party delivery arrangements.
  4. log in to the QCAA Portal
  5. complete the ‘Add units’ activity in the VET app.

A QCAA officer will review the completed application. They will:

  • approve the application if it meets packaging rules, is low risk, and includes all required information
  • reject the application if it does not meet packaging rules
  • request clarification of provided evidence if required.

Once you receive notification that the unit has been added to scope:

  1. review the 'offered' box in the VET app for each of the qualification’s units
  2. tick the 'offered' box only for units listed in the TAS document.

Note: Units without a tick in the 'offered' box will not be available for student enrolment.

Note: If your RTO needs to arrange for a third party to deliver one or more units, you will need to organise a third-party agreement with them and advise the QCAA using the Notification of change to organisational details form in the School Portal, which can be accessed via the QCAA Portal.
