RTO Validation Services

RTO Validation services

We can validate your RTO processes and resources to make sure your educational standards meet the requirements. Not only will this help make sure you’re compliant and able to pass audits, but will also help to improve the quality of your training offering.

Ensure your RTO and programs are up to scratch

In the world of Registered Training Organisations (RTOs), validation is an important process to ensure quality of the training and assessments provided.

Validation confirms that your training methods and assessment tools are valid, reliable, sufficient, current, and use authentic evidence, to support your student competency.

Our comprehensive RTO validation services, delivered by seasoned validators, provide you with an unbiased, third-party review of your assessment resources and decisions. Not just for compliance, but so that you can be sure you’re delivering high-quality training programs.

More about our validation services

Pre-validation (verification)

Pre-validation or verification is the first step in ensuring your resources and processes are valid. Our team will review your assessment tools and methodologies, and identify potential issues before they impact on student outcomes. We can offer insights on any areas of non-compliance, and provide you with rectification suggestions and improvements. We can also support you with justifications and defences. Pre-validation confirms that your RTO is compliant from the start, avoiding potential pitfalls later on in the validation process.


Moderation is a necessary step to maintain consistency, fairness, and balance in assessment outcomes across your different trainers, learners, and contexts. Our moderation services involve reviewing and aligning the judgements of your assessors, checking for consistency and making sure they meet the benchmarks. By facilitating an open dialogue between assessors, we aim to help you make your assessment decisions more reliable and fair across the board, helping your RTO maintain high standards and compliance with the regulations.

Validation of assessment judgements

The validation of assessment judgements is important to maintain the credibility of your RTO. We review your RTO's assessment decisions to ensure they accurately reflect the learners' competency. Our skilled validators provide a detailed report outlining any areas of non-compliance, along with suggestions for improvements to fix the non-compliance issues found. This process safeguards your RTO against non-compliance risks, strengthening its reputation for delivering high-quality training and assessments.

Resource validation

Our resource validation services scrutinise your assessment resources to ensure that they produce valid and authentic evidence of learning outcomes. We provide a comprehensive product review report, which highlights any areas of non-compliance and suggests rectifications. Our detailed approach will see that your resources are compliant with regulatory requirements.

AVETMISS data validation

Australian Vocational Education and Training Management Information Statistical Standard (AVETMISS) compliance is key for RTOs.

AVETMISS is a national data standard that ensures the consistent and accurate capture of VET information about students, courses, qualifications, and assessments.

We offer AVETMISS data validation services, assessing your data collection and reporting systems for compliance with the standard. This service helps you to make sure your RTO is fulfilling its reporting obligations, thereby avoiding potential penalties and maintaining its reputation.
