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) who are registered with the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) to 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 RTOs comply with registration requirements. TMR’s role is to ensure the content of RTO’s training and assessment resources contains the technical content required by TMR for accreditation of driver/rider trainers under the Transport Operations (Road Use Management—Accreditation and Other Provisions) Regulation 2015.

RTOs should be:

  • based in Queensland
  • currently registered with ASQA and have 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.

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 applicable)
  • 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 refer to the following TMR document specific to the industry roles for which they are applying for:

Applications received without the appropriate supporting documentation will not be accepted for consideration.

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

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

  • insufficient or incorrect technical content
  • superseded information 
  • 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.
