Compliance and Vocational Education and Training (VET) Consultancy Services
VET Quality Framework Internal audits for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs).
PD Solutions is certified to conduct internal audits of RTO compliance with the VET Quality Framework including the Standards for RTOs (2105). These audits identify any risks of non-compliance and we advise on risk treatment where applicable.
We recommend that audits can be a particularly valuable before renewal of registration or at any time during the registration period.
VET Quality Framework Internal audits for organisations intending to apply to become RTOs.
PD Solutions provides internal audits of compliance services with the VET Quality Framework including the Standards for RTOs (2105) to identify any gaps in systems and documentation before an application is submitted to the appropriate VET Regulator Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA), Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority (VRQA) or Training Accreditation Council WA (TAC).
Audits of RTOs and training providers against contractual requirements.
PD Solutions assists organisations that have engaged RTOs to conduct training on their behalf by conducting audits against contractual requirements.
Audits of RTOs against regulatory requirements.
In some cases RTOs are authorised to deliver training and assessment services by regulators, e.g. RailCorp for Rail Industry Safety Induction (RISI) Card, ARTC for certification purposes. PD Solutions is able to conduct audits of authorised RTOs against Terms and Conditions of Approval and any administrative guideline requirements.
Support to RTOs in assessment validation.
PD Solutions is able to lead RTO staff through processes to review training and assessment strategies and assessment tools to ensure that they meet requirements. PD Solutions aims to transfer skills to RTO staff to ensure internal capability.
Professional Development for RTO staff and contractors.
RTOs are required to demonstrate that training and assessment is delivered by trainers and assessors who (inter alia) continue to develop their vocational education and training (VET) knowledge and skills as well as their industry currency and trainer/assessor competence (SNR 15.4).
