How to become an RTO - the ultimate guide [Updated for 2024]

Jacob Shaw

The game has changed for those wondering how to become a registered training organisation in 2024. The Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) has recently increased scrutiny of new applications for initial registration to ensure only high-quality training providers are approved.

This 12-step guide will help you understand the process of new RTO registration and give you a realistic timeframe for each step. While setting up an RTO is not easy, it is well worth the reward of entering the booming Australian VET industry.

RTO setup costs

The cost of RTO setup varies between clients, but some factors remain consistent. In our experience, preparing to submit an application takes between three to six months. Labour costs required to complete an application can be substantial – especially for organisations applying for the first time. RTOs must account for resources, staffing, delivery locations, RTO validation and more. Once the application is ready, the cost of applying to have ASQA assess the application is $8500. Clients must allow a further six months for this assessment process to take place. View our pricing for initial registration.
