RTO Operational Advice,
and Risk Management
We provide quotations for the set up of Registered Training Organisations and CRICOS providers from business structure to opening the doors. Our team works across National, State and regulatory bodies.
We can consult and work with your RTO and CRICOS on registration renewal, expansion of scope through new courses or adding new locations. We can consult on moving into government funding or new delivery modes - Classroom, distance, flexible and on line learning modes.
We have experience in a wide range of businesses and the set up of private training companies and colleges with multiple campuses, across states and across countries (overseas operations).
Maintenance of a compliant and well managed RTO should be done regularly and not be seen as an imposition on your business. But it is complex and time consuming. We can provide confidential advice on the interpretation of audit reports and problem solving in a number of jurisdictions, against the new (SNR) Standards for ASQA registered RTO's, the AQTF and National Code and ESOS legislation. We can work with clients on annual self-assessment and risk management and produce reports for critical deadlines. We help you respond professionally to requests from regulatory bodies in ways that suit the size and scale of your RTO operations. This is an area of strength for our team of confidential consultants.
