Training Options

Staff Training

New regulatory auditing approach requires the institutions to follow the five phases of the student’s journey, grouping the relevant standards (and clauses) against each stage. ASQA has emphasised the importance of RTO practice to the quality of the student experience.

We offer standardised and customised training programmes designed to up-skill operational and frontline staff to meet the regulatory requirements, on developments and trends, as well as operational processes.

Our training programmes range from refresher courses through to technical courses on specific regulatory matters.

Training can be delivered on-site by one of our consultants or digitally.

Compliance Officer Training

Compliance Officers are subject to regulatory responsibility and liabilities, and therefore require an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the regulatory and operational compliance obligations that a business is required to satisfy on an ongoing basis.

We offer those Compliance Officers customised training programmes tailored the specific regulatory regimes affecting their institution.

Training is delivered on-site by a Director or Senior Consultant.

Senior Managers & Directors

Certain businesses are faced with so much complexities on compliance matters and subject to great amount of cash outflow on compliance. Senior Managers and Directors are required to have a thorough understanding of their business operations in terms of their functions and coordination among functions and the operational and regulatory risks facing their functions.

We offer concise and targeted board and senior management level training sessions on the compliance issues and developments that have a direct impact on the institution that can be overcome by smooth and cost-effective approaches in order to achieve their business goals.

Training is delivered on-site by a Director or Senior Consultant.

Assessment Validation is a critical core compliance activity for Australian RTOs, required by the Standards for RTOs 2015. Third party validation of your training and assessment resources and assessment judgements by EMC Audit Solutions will not only save you time, and allow you to access expert validators, it is also desirable and even necessary to achieve full compliance with the Standards for RTOs.

As per ASQA’s Standards for RTOs 2015, your RTO’s validation plan must ensure:

  • Every training product on your RTO’s scope of registration undergoes validation at least once every five years.
  • You validate at least 50 per cent of the training products in the first three years of that cycle.

How will EMC Audit meet your Assessment Validation needs?

Our Validation Experts have extensive experience validating training and assessment resources, and assessment judgements, to help Australian RTOs maintain compliance and enhance their training through improved training resources and consistent assessment practices.

EMC Audit Solutions offers TWO types of validation service to help you achieve full compliance:

Post-Assessment Validation is a quality review process that ensures your RTO’s assessment system produces consistent, valid assessment judgements. During post-Assessment Validation, validators will review assessments completed by your assessors to ensure they are compliant with rules of evidence which are sufficient, valid, current, reliable and authentic. They will be looking for evidence that demonstrates your RTO’s assessors make reasonable judgements about whether your learners have met the training and assessment requirements.

As part of your Post-Assessment Validation Service, EMC Audit Solutions can:

  • Lead or participate in your validation team or undertake your assessment validation on our own
  • Provide reports with recommended improvements and rectifications to your assessment process
  • Work out a statistically valid sample size for your Post-Assessment Validation
  • Assist you to implement improvements and rectifications identified during the validation process
  • Set up your validation schedule and conduct regular assessment validation for you to ensure your compliance requirements are met

Assessment Tool Validation focuses specifically on whether your RTO’s training and assessment resources (including Assessment Workbooks and Assessor Guides) fully meets the requirements of the training package, and comply with the Standards for RTOs 2015.

During your learning resource validation, EMC Audit’s validators will map your assessment materials against the training package requirements to identify missing or inadequate assessment of Elements, Performance Criteria, Knowledge Evidence, Performance Evidence. They will also assess the overall quality and compliance of your training tools against the requirements of the Standards for RTOs 2015.

As part of our Assessment Tool Validation service we will:

  • Map your assessment resources against the training package requirements to identify knowledge and evidence gaps
  • Review your assessment tools against the Standards for RTOs 2015 requirements
  • Provide an overall assessment of the quality, style and content of the resource
  • Provide an actionable list of recommended rectifications
  • Create complete validation reports and mapping documents for each unit or cluster (enquire now and ask for a free assessment tool validation sample!)

Contact EMC Audit Solutions today and book your assessment validation service now.

We accept one-off validation services, and are also able to set up long term validation plans for your RTO so you can be assured in the knowledge your RTO is always up to date and fully compliant with the Standards for RTOs 2015 validation requirements.
