Expedited Process for Training Package updates

​The State Training Board and the Department of Training and Workforce Development have developed a revised process to simplify EVAC applications for replacement Class A or B qualifications as a result of training package updates. Qualifications deemed equivalent and qualifications that are deemed to be non-equivalent but have the same occupation outcome can undergo this process.  

The same occupational outcome is defined as: where any of the national or State ANZSCO or secondary ANZSCO codes assigned to the replacement qualification are the same as for the original qualification.     

This process is considered to meet the legislative requirements under the Vocational Education and Training Act 1996 (VET Act) and associated Regulations in that:

  • a full EVAC would have been completed and approved for the establishment of the initial apprenticeship or traineeship for that qualification;
  • the replacement qualification has the same occupational outcome as the original, and therefore does not require full re-consideration of all details;
  • the process is industry driven, where training councils notify industry stakeholders of the training package changes and collect and retain evidence of industry confirming support for the replacement qualifications to continue as a Class A or B qualification under the same conditions; and
  • unions are consulted by training councils to meet the legislative requirements.
