What is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO)?

19 Apr 2011


A registered training organisation (RTO) can issue nationally recognised training qualifications.

An RTO is a registered provider and assessor of nationally recognised training. That means any qualification – certificate, diploma or short course – that you obtain through an RTO is recognised and valid in any state or territory not just the one you were in when you studied.

To become an RTO, like ATS, training providers must meet Australian Quality Training Framework (AQTF) standards which ensures the quality of vocational education and training (VET) services in Australia.

An RTO provides a greater assurance of quality training as registration must be renewed every five years and they can be audited by the registering authority at any time during their registration period.

In essence a registered training organisation is an organisation that has registered to provide nationally recognised training with the relevant state or territory registration authority. They are your assurance of quality training.

ATS has been an RTO for over 11 years. If you have any questions about your training needs please call 1800 287 960
