Webinar/Online Course: Compliance Requirements for Trainer Industry Currency

21st May 2020
03:30 PM - 04:30 PM


Maintaining industry currency is an essential component of compliance for VET trainers and assessors. Industry currency is often overlooked, or minimised due to the practical challenges of both implementing and maintaining currency.

In this webinar, you will gain confidence and capability in meeting industry currency expectations as set out in Standards for RTOs 2015 – what the standards are, what they require, practical strategies you can roll out to maintain currency, and what good evidence looks like for auditors.

At the end of the session, you will have developed a framework for industry currency and a plan to effectively implement the framework in your workplace.
