In some cases, ASQA is empowered to approve transition periods longer than those detailed in Clauses 1.26 (a), (b) and (c) of the Standards for Registered Training Organisations 2015.
In accordance with the General Direction – Learner transition, ASQA will only consider applications for a longer transition period where it can be demonstrated that there would be genuine disadvantage to a cohort of learners if such an extension was not approved.
Where ASQA has approved an extended transition period, that arrangement applies to all RTOs delivering the specific training product to the identified learner cohort (e.g. plumbing apprentices in a specific jurisdiction where the qualification has been superseded), regardless of who made the application.
ASQA has recently approved an extended transition period for the following training products only for learners in the ACT. The extended training, assessment and certification issuance period for this qualification ends on 30 June 2022.
- CPP40507 Certificate IV in Property Services (Business Broking)
- CPP40307 Certificate IV in Property Services (Real Estate)
- CPP40611 Certificate IV in Property Services (Operations)
- CPP40407 Certificate IV in Property Services (Stock and Station Agency)
- CPP50307 Diploma of Property Services (Agency Management)
- 62 CPP Property Services units of competency
It was demonstrated to ASQA that learners would be genuinely disadvantaged if they were required to transition to the replacement as the required real estate licensing changes have not been updated to incorporate the latest version of these training products in the ACT. This request was supported by Artibus Innovation in their role as the Skills Service Organisation for the CPP Property Services Training Package.
The training products will remain on RTOs scope of registration until the end of the extended transition period unless the RTO chooses to withdraw it from scope prior.
