There are a range of professional standards and/or benchmarks in the training profession field against which training professionals need to maintain and enhance their competence. These can seem a little daunting sometimes, so it helps to focus on the benefits of adopting these standards. The professional standards that apply across the board to Australia’s training professionals include:
Australian Quality Training Framework (AQTF):
This is a set of standards that Registered Training Organisations (RTO) must comply with to maintain registration within designated states.
Standards for NVR Registered Training Organisations:
This is a set of standards that Registered Training Organisations must comply with to maintain registration within designated states.
Quality accreditation standards:
The International Standards Organisation (ISO) is a leading organisation in specifying quality standards applicable to a broad range of industries. The standards contained within ISO 9001, QS 900 and ISO 14000 outline that organisations must have staff adequately trained and resourced to comply with their job requirements.
