Glossary term: State and territory registering and course accrediting bodies

The authority responsible for VET in each state or territory for the registration of training organisations (RTOs) and the accreditation of courses.

With the establishment of the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) as the national VET regulator, this function is now the responsibility of ASQA in the Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales, Northern Territory, Queensland, South Australia and Tasmania.

Victoria and Western Australia have not referred their powers to the Commonwealth and the registration of training organisations (with a number of exceptions) and accreditation of courses remain the responsibility of the Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority (VRQA) in Victoria and the Training Accreditation Council (TAC) in Western Australia.
