Changes to Training Provider legislation from 26 March 2012
The South Australian Parliament passed legislation referring the regulation to the Commonwealth on 1 March 2012. On 26 March 2012, the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) took on the registration of training providers, accreditation of courses, and other associated regulatory activity.

How it works
To offer nationally accredited training under the Australian Qualifications Framework, you must become a registered training organisation (RTO).
Registered training organisations
RTOs are providers of nationally recognised training and assessment services which have met national quality assurance standards. Only RTOs:
- can deliver, assess and issue parchments for nationally recognised courses and qualifications
- are eligible to apply for State and Commonwealth Government funding for accredited training
- can use the Nationally Recognised Training logo on all qualifications and statements of attainment that they issue
- are eligible to apply to become South Australian Skills for All Training Providers.
Find out more about becoming an RTO.
Skills for All Training Providers
From 2 July 2012, if you want to offer government funded training through Skills for All, you will need to be an RTO and then gain approval from the South Australian Government to become a Skills for All Training Provider. Under the new scheme, eligible students choose their Skills for All Training Provider, who are funded for the training delivered, according to prescribed rules set out in the Training Provider contract and associated documents.
RTOs are invited to apply for approval as Skills for All Training Providers.
