Reporting checklist

TASC AVETMISS VET Provider Collection data must include:

  • Training attainment records for every Tasmanian client of any age;
  • All result records for every client, regardless of funding;
  • Cumulative AVS-validated AVETMISS VET Provider Collection data reported quarterly plus an interim report in December.

Prior to submitting, TASC quarterly AVETMISS VET Provider Collection data must be AVS-validated with the online NCVER AVS validation tool. AVS Validation errors must be resolved before lodging.

An AVS Validation (CollectionProcessingSummaryReport.pdf) report must be attached to confirm AVETMISS VET Provider Collection data files are valid and error-free.

A Tasmanian client is defined as a person with a Tasmanian postcode: 7000-7999.

If your RTO management software is not capable of extracting only Tasmanian clients, lodge your AVETMISS VET Provider Collection following the instructions above and TASC will process it.

TASC requires RTOs to provide their AVETMISS VET Provider Collection as a set of AVS-validated, error-free AVETMISS files in the national AVETMISS 8.0 Standard; the same format required by NCVER and Skills Tasmania.

AVETMISS VET Provider Collection data submissions are cumulative through each calendar year. Each quarter AVETMISS must include all results for the calendar year up to the schedule date.
