Tips for RTOs Moving Forward

Here are some important things to keep in mind to help your RTO make the best out of the training package update:

  • Plan your transition early. Better adapt to the changes to the course materials by having a transition plan in place as soon as possible. It is never too early to plan ahead when it comes to major changes like the Children’s Education and Care update.
  • Secure the latest RTO training materials now. Securing the latest RTO materials only provides benefits to your organisation. When you get a head start on your transition, you’ll be able to get your money’s worth of the new resources and be one of the first to market the latest courses. Also, students actively seek out organisations with the latest version of the course materials they need. If you want to capitalise on the student demand, it’s best to get these RTO materials as soon as possible.
