email header must identify your RTO: RTO Code, RTO Title, reporting period and year

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.

An AVS Validation report must be produced to ensure the AVETMISS VET Provider Collection data files are valid.

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, email your report to results@tasc.tas.gov.au and TASC will filter and upload the report.

TASC requires RTOs to provide their attainment reports as a set of AVS-validated AVETMISS files in the national AVETMISS 8.0 Standard; the same format required by Skills Tasmania.

AVETMISS VET Provider Collection data submissions are cumulative through each calendar year. At each quarter you should report all results for the calendar year up to that date.

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 the AVETMISS VET Provider Collection data files are zipped and emailed to TASC.

TASC AVETMISS VET Provider Collection data comprises the full set of ten NAT.txt files:

Legislative requirements

Reporting is a legislative requirement for all RTOs as outlined in Section 64C of the Office of Tasmanian Assessment, Standards and Certification Act 2003.

A registered training organisation conducting operations in this State must provide returns of its client records of attainment of units of competency and qualifications, as are determined by the Office; to the Office at such times and in such manner as the Office determines.

RTOs must also comply with the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015.

Specifically Standards 8.5 and 8.6:

8.5 The RTO complies with Commonwealth, State and Territory legislation and regulatory requirements relevant to its operations.

8.6 The RTO ensures its staff and clients are informed of any changes to legislative and regulatory requirements that affect the services delivered.
