In order to become a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) an organisation must ensure that it complies with the standards and conditions set by the national VET regulator, ASQA (except WA and Vic). To successfully maintain its registration, an RTO is subject to very strict scrutiny and can be called upon at any time to justify its training and delivery methods. This scrutiny can take the form of internal or external evaluations—or audits—and these must form part of the organisation’s continuous improvement program. Every aspect of RTO operations must, at some point, undergo such an evaluation if the organisation is to remain compliant with ASQA requirements. The point of all training programs is that they increase the learner’s employment capabilities. Indeed, under certain government-funded programs it is a key performance indicator (KPI) that participants in a program achieve an employment outcome.
