Will I receive a certificate at the end of the course?
Yes, once you have completed the course you will receive a Certificate of Completion.
What happens if the Standards change after I've enrolled in the course?
You will have access to your course material and the included resources for 6months from the time of your course enrolment. Should the Standards change during this period, you will automatically have access to the updated course material on the Standards. This will ensure that you are able to access any updates to the Standards if you commence the course within 6 months of any updates to the Standards.
Is this the same boring stuff that all the other compliance consultants charge a fortune for?
Unlike many compliance consultants this course has been developed by Australia's leading Sanction Management and Tribunal expert, Alex Schroder. Alex is also the developer of the CIV in RTO Compliance and the Diploma of RTO Compliance Management courses and knows VET Compliance inside and out.
Apart from her impressive industry experience and qualifications, Alex is also a member of the inaugural ASQA Stakeholder Liaison Group (SLG), which is made up of providers and sector consultants focused on advising ASQA on the expansion and continuous improvement of its regulatory engagement and education.
ASQA already explains the Standards, why should I do this course?
Although ASQA offers a number of educative resources on the Standards, the information provided is at a much more general level and aimed at a wider audience.
AICP's RTO Standards Unpacked! course is unique in so far as it unpacks all the clauses in all of the Standards in detail, providing clear and easy to understand (and use!) explanations of each and every requirement.
My RTO wants to enroll several people in the course, can we get a group discount?
AICP offers a corporate discount to any RTO that enrolls 5+ participants simultaneously. Please contact AICP for further details.
