Third Party Arrangements
Partnering with Trainwest
Not all businesses have the required resources to become a Registered Training Organisation (RTO). When compliance is not your core business, the value in becoming an RTO is questionable, particularly when considering all those non-revenue generating hours. Trainwest’s Third Party partnership program ensures you can deliver nationally recognised training courses and qualifications to your clients and employees, without the burden of becoming an RTO.
In other words, under our third party auspicing agreement we take care of the non-revenue generating tasks, allowing you to focus on what you do best, what you love most, and what is most profitable – your clients, your way!
If you are one of these organisations or persons who wish to provide online or accredited training, partnering with an RTO like Trainwest makes good sense. Enquire today about entering into a partnership with us by contacting us.
Trainwest is required to establish a written service agreement with each organisation that provides training and/or assessment on their behalf. This agreement will include the following:
- each parties roles and responsibilities;
- cooperating with Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA – national regulator for vocational education and training);
- complying with ASQA advertising and marketing standards;
- informing prospective learners;
- collecting fees,
- dealing with complaints and appeals; and
- providing data (student records and USI numbers).
