Nationally Recognised Training

Nationally Recognised Training(NRT)


In Australia, Vocational Educational Training (VET) is highly regulated in order to ensure consistency across training outcomes. Training packages determine what should be delivered in each course and qualifications are recognised by  industry sectors throughout the country, hence the term "nationally recognised training". Nationally recognised training will allow you to apply your skills and use your certifications no matter what state or territory you may be currently living and working in. All nationally recognised training programs must be delivered by an RTO.

What Is an RTO?

RTO stands for Registered Training Organisation and it refers to any company that has been properly registered to train in Australia through the Australian Skills Quality Authority.(ASQA) The College has been an RTO for 14 years, Registered Training Organisation RTO Number:90984. Our registration details are publicly available through www.training.gov.au.

Our current courses and programs are based on a range of knowledge and skills required for boat licence training and are derived from nationally recognised units of competency currently registered on our scope.The knowledge and skills gained in this training may be used as recognition of skill towards a nationally recognised maritime training unit.

Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF)

The AQF is a nationally agreed framework that identifies the qualifications available in Australia in the three educational sectors (schools, vocational education and training, and higher education).
