ASQA approves extended transition period for FWP30716 Certificate III in Sawdoctoring until 30 January 2022

In some cases, ASQA is empowered to approve transition periods longer than those detailed in Clauses 1.26 (a), (b) and (c) of the Standards for Registered Training Organisations 2015.

In accordance with the General Direction – Learner transition, ASQA will only consider applications for a longer transition period where it can be demonstrated that there would be genuine disadvantage to a cohort of learners if such an extension was not approved.

Where ASQA has approved an extended transition period, that arrangement applies to all RTOs delivering the specific training product to the identified learner cohort (e.g. plumbing apprentices in a specific jurisdiction where the qualification has been superseded), regardless of who made the application.

ASQA has recently approved an extended transition period for FWP30716 Certificate III in Sawdoctoring. The extended training, assessment and certification issuance period for this qualification ends on 22 January 2022.

It was demonstrated to ASQA that learners would be genuinely disadvantaged if they were required to transition to the replacement FWP31019 as this would create additional study burdens for the learners.

The FWP30716 Certificate III in Sawdoctoring will remain on RTOs scope of registration until the end of the extended transition period, unless the RTO chooses to withdraw it from scope prior.
