RTO Attainment Reporting

Registered Training Organisations delivering to Tasmanian clients are required to provide validated client attainment returns quarterly to the office of TASC.

Legislative Requirements:

Section 64C of the Office of Tasmanian Assessment, Standards and Certification Act Office of Tasmanian Assessment, Standards and Certification Act 2003, states:

64C. Registered Training Organisations to provide information to the Office

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.

Penalty: Fine not exceeding 10 penalty units.


RTOs must also comply with 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.

Definition of a Tasmanian Client:

This legislation means that the Office of TASC requires the records of attainment of all persons with a Tasmanian postcode (7000, 7001, 7002, .... 7999) attaining units of competency and/or qualifications.

This also means we require all records of attainment for these persons, including:

  • training that is not publicly funded;

  • training that is privately funded;

  • publicly funded training;

  • all Tasmanian persons of any age.

It is preferred that RTOs report ONLY Tasmanian clients (as defined above) if the RTO management software is capable of filtering Tasmanian clients to export.

If your RTO management software is not capable of extracting only Tasmanian clients, send your report; TASC will filter persons by postcode.

Data Requirements:

TASC requires RTOs to provide their attainment reports as a set of AVS validated electronic data files in the national AVETMISS 7.0 Standard: the same format required by Skills Tasmania.
AVETMISS Attainment data submissions are cumulative through a calendar year - subsequent reports must contain all previous; i.e. quarter four must include quarter one, two, three and four.

The AVETMISS attainment report MUST be validated with the online NCVER AVS validation tool.
Validation errors MUST be resolved before they are emailed to TASC
The AVS provider collection report MUST be attached with the AVETMISS files.

The full set of ten AVETMISS files (NAT000010, 20, 30, 60, 80, 85, 90, 100, 120 and 130) must be emailed by the quarterly schedule below, to TASC:
You must identify your RTO in the email subject line: RTO Title and Code.

If your RTO has no attainment activity to report for the quarter, send an email identifying your RTO (title & code) in the email subject line, stating: nil attainments.

For AVETMISS Standard specifications, validation tools & validation issues, refer: NCVER.
