Transition period extended for Public Safety qualifications

On 22nd January 2020, Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) Commissioners agreed to extend the transition period of the PUA12 Public Safety Training Package qualifications and skill sets listed below until 17th July 2021.

ASQA made the decision following a request from the Australasian Fire and Emergency Service Authorities Council, with the support of Australian Industry Standards. This extension will be granted to all registered training organisations (RTOs) delivering the qualification(s) and skill set(s) to current learners. The decision extends the transition period for these RTOs to complete the training, assessment and Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) certification issuance for existing learners.

The qualification(s) and skill set(s) will remain on the relevant RTOs’ scope of registration until the end of the extended transition period.

ASQA will publish this decision on its website and notify all affected RTOs.
