ASQA approves extended transition period for 18 qualifications from CPC08 Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package

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to the identified learner cohort (e.g. plumbing apprentices in a specific jurisdiction where the qualification has been superseded), regardless of who made the application.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 qualifications from the CPC08 Training Package until 31 December 2021.

  • CPC10111 Certificate I in Construction
  • CPC20112 Certificate II in Construction
  • CPC20211 Certificate II in Construction Pathways
  • CPC30111 Certificate III in Bricklaying/Blocklaying
  • CPC30116 Certificate III in Shopfitting
  • CPC30318 Certificate III in Concreting
  • CPC30413 Certificate III in Demolition
  • CPC30812 Certificate III in Roof Tiling
  • CPC30611 Certificate III in Painting and Decorating
  • CPC31011 Certificate III in Solid Plastering
  • CPC31211 Certificate III in Wall and Ceiling Lining
  • CPC31311 Certificate III in Wall and Floor Tiling
  • CPC31411 Certificate III in Construction waterproofing
  • CPC32313 Certificate III in Stonemasonry
  • CPC41013 Certificate IV in Demolition
  • CPC60212 Advanced Diploma of Building and Construction (Management)

ASQA also agreed to extend the transition period of CPC40308 Certificate IV in Building and Construction (Estimating) and CPC40508 Certificate IV in Building and Construction (Site Management) to 27 November 2022.

It was demonstrated to ASQA that learners would be genuinely disadvantaged if they were required to transition to the replacement qualifications.

The qualifications 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.
