Upgrade your Diploma of Quality Auditing to Compliance Plus

AICP’s Compliance Plus program incorporates Module 1 of our new non-accredited RTO Standards Unpacked! course in the CIV of RTO compliance.  This course has been designed by Alex Schroder, Australia’s leading Sanction Management Specialist, Forensic Compliance Auditor, and Administrative Appeals Tribunal Specialist.

Alex is a member of the inaugural ASQA Stakeholder Liaison Group (SLG) and various ASQA sub-committees focused on which is focused on self-assurance, audit practices, online learning in the VET sector and more. Alex is also an ITECA QLD state committee member, a member of the Australian Institute of company directors, a qualified lawyer, and the developer of the Nationally Accredited 1CIV in RTO Compliance and the Diploma of RTO Compliance Management.

Given that many of the clauses within the standards for RTOs interact with one another, and without a comprehensive understanding of each clause and the relationship between the various clauses, your effectiveness as a compliance practitioner is limited and you cannot be fully effective unless you have a complete and comprehensive understanding of the interpretation and application of the clauses within the standards for RTOs.
In Module 1 of the RTO Standards Unpacked! we unpack the standards to a practical level where the meanings and interpretations of each standard/clause are explained for everyday use.

At the end of this component, you will have the skills and knowledge to:

● Understand the full meaning of the clauses in the standards for RTOs
● Understand how the various clauses in the standards for RTOs are interlinked
● Determine how each clause within the standards for RTOs is interpreted for ongoing compliance
● Identify the compliance requirements of each clause in the standards for RTOs
● Implement the standards for RTOs in your RTO’s day-to-day operations

All AICP learners can upgrade to the Compliance Plus program for an additional $550 plus GST (this is a saving of $345 off the cost of module 1 of the RTO Standards Unpacked! course).
