Becoming a registered training organisation approved to deliver training and assessment

The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) approves Queensland based registered training organisations (RTO) registered with the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) who deliver training and/or assessment for the following industry roles:

  • dangerous goods vehicle driver 
  • pilot and/or escort vehicle driver 
  • driver and/or rider trainer 
  • multi-combination vehicle driver.

ASQA ensures that RTOs comply with registration requirements. TMR’s role is to ensure that the content of the RTO’s training and assessment resources contains the technical content required by TMR. For this reason the department will only accept a Qualification or Statement of Attainment from an RTO

  • based in Queensland
  • currently registered with ASQA
  • with the specific qualification/unit on their scope of registration for delivery in Queensland
  • approved by the Department of Transport and Main roads to deliver the training and assessment.

Note: RTOs based outside of Queensland may apply for approval to the regulator in their own state. 

Apply to be an approved RTO

To be considered for approval, RTOs must submit an application to TMR and include the following:

  • the trading name and the RTO registration number
  • contact information
  • certificate of incorporation if the RTO is a company
  • photographic evidence of training facilities and equipment
  • client base—such as face-to-face or corporate
  • training location/s where training/assessment will be delivered
  • evidence of course content, training and assessment resources
  • trainer/assessor details including qualifications
  • disclosure of all Partnership agreements. 

For the required technical course content, training and assessment resources, RTOs must also refer to the following TMR documents specific to the industry roles:

RTO applications that are received without the appropriate supporting documentation will not be accepted for consideration.

TMR will consider each application against the required technical content with a specific focus on the technical skills and knowledge required to perform the role.

An RTO application may be refused and/or required to amend course materials because of:  

  • insufficient or incorrect technical content
  • information which has been superseded
  • insufficient or incorrect references to relevant national and Queensland laws and/or TMR policy
  • failure to comply with the requirements of the training course.

RTOs should provide their applications by post or email.
