The #1 fear of any trainer is looking foolish in front of others…

…and most trainers UNCONSCIOUSLY trigger this fear every day.

RTO Requirements for all trainers and assessors

If you work in for an Austrlian RTO you also can accumulate professional development for your RTO. As part of the Standards, an RTO’s training and assessment may only be delivered by trainers and assessors who:hold the required credentials (Standards 1.14 and 1.15, Schedule 1 of the Standards)

  1. ♣ hold vocational competencies at least to the level being delivered and assessed (Standard 1.13[a])
  2. ♣ have current industry skills directly relevant to the training and assessment being provided (Standard 1.13[b])
  3. ♣ have current knowledge and skills in vocational training and learning that informs their training and assessment (Standard 1.13[c])
  4. ♣ undertake relevant professional development (Standard 1.16).


You need to retain sufficient evidence to show you can demonstrate appropriate competency, currency and professional development.
