You could lose your RTOs ability to trade
instantly. Why risk it? With no RTO there is no funding! We are the only
provider that has done its own research on your behalf and
warn every RTO NOW!
[Date: Fri, Jun 6, To: ASQA from RTO] -
"1. Since the CEO is responsible for the data and being able to
produce it at a moments notice in an audit, should the RTO
ensure that the data is never out of reach from the CEO? 2. Is
it the CEO's responsibility that the data is AVETMISS compliant?
I see a lot of companies promising this, we were planning on
handing over an invoice to prove it but the information I read
says it is our responsibility not any vendor. 3. If the RTO
cannot access or modify its NAT files at the request of a
regulator, and the data provider does not make the capability
available, does that mean that the RTO is in breach? To prove
compliance to data provisions isn't it good enough to show a
receipt of the program purchased, or is it our responsibility to
make sure either way it is a) accessible and b) easily
producible or adaptable and c) correct?"
[Date: Fri, Jun 9, To: RTO from ASQA] - "ASQAís role is to
enforce provider compliance with these requirements as they
relate to the Standards for NVR Registered Training
Organisations 2012 and the Data Provision Requirements 2012."
[Date: Fri, Jun 13, To: ASQA from RTO] - "Just to confirm, the
software is not what will pass the audit. So, I take it that: a)
It is the way the CEO can demonstrate the above and not how much
or how fancy the software is?"
[Date: Fri, Jun 13, To: RTO from ASQA] - "ASQA confirms that
whatever system the RTO chooses to use, it must deliver the
required data in order for the RTO to be complaint with the VET
Quality Framework." ... The VET Quality Framework also includes
the Standards for NVR Registered Training Organisations 2012."
"The Standards for NVR Registered Training Organisations 2012 at
Part 3 Essential standards for continuing registration reference
at SNR 18 The NVR registered training organisation has
governance arrangements in place." "SNR 18.1 The NVR
registered training organisationís Chief Executive must ensure
that the NVR registered training organisation complies with the
VET Quality Framework. This applies to all of the operations
within the NVR registered training organisationís scope of
registration, as listed on the National Register."
Welcome to AVETMISS NOW! The software saving RTOs.
AVETMISS NOW! will offer a FREE upgrade supporting USI legislation by 24th Oct 2015.
The Student Identifiers Act 2014 was proclaimed on 27 June 2014. Industry Minister Ian Macfarlane announced its passage through the Senate in a Media Release on 20 June 2014.
Passage of the legislation confirms the 1 January 2015 commencement
date for the USI scheme. This creates certainty for the sector and signals the need for
training providers to complete preparations for the start of the
scheme. The USI system will be available for students and training providers
to create and collect USIs from October 2014.
For most training providers incorporating the USI into student
management systems will be the easiest way to collect, verify and
AVETMISS NOW! the only software in
Australia that allows you to demonstrate instant satisfaction of the
standards to an Auditor.
AVETMISS NOW! (the software built from compliance audits backwards)
is THE most adaptable cost effective system in the country for data
retention and customised NAT file reporting. No other system
compares. You receive electronic delivery of your new customised
system. We provide a TAX Invoice.
If coming as a new customer with compliant AVETMISS 7.0 files, not
only will our system import them free of charge, you attain the
discounted price of $995 +GST (which includes our special 20% off so
hurry!). If not the once off payment is $1295 + GST. On receipt of
purchase or upgrade from another vendor we give you this offer.
Only ONE payment, no software fees. The system is self managed
adhering to your demonstration of legislative requirements! You
maintain control of your data. The system empowers you to adapt to
data acquisition changes to assist you in compliance with data
timeframes. It's your data, when you want it, NOW! Don't give your
data to your competitors! With AVETMISS NOW! we have made it so
simple to use and grow with.
STOP PAYING LICENCE FEES. It
is too much reliance on a third party. In the Act(s) resources have to be
internally in compliance with the standards whose data is constantly changing and may be discretionary during an audit. How could any third-party (especially hosted) provider make you comply to such a request to modify or reproduce data on site
(24/7) at a spot audit? Result: Non-compliance, they cannot.
We do NOT charge ANY ongoing licence fees. Those that do are
protecting themselves and no other. Licence fees do not (in our
opinion) train the CEO to understand the RTOs data requirements.
Apart from any errors (to be proven by the form below) we are not
allowed to advise you on data or be your IT department (See SNRs).
We would like to tell you the truth about AVETMISS 7 and government
'error', as nobody seems to want to admit it.
Why was ASQA created? That is very simple question yet a lot of
people don't know the underlying facts. It was designed for the same
reason AVETMISS 7.0 and its underlying legislation was created. TO
AVOID STATE & NATIONAL INCONSISTENCY. In our opinion (team of
auditors/industry experts and advisors) we believe they failed - at
who's risk "YOURS".
We make no further comment other than to note
You as an RTO are bound by an Act of Legislation to follow NCVER
Nationally Consistent Data Definitions and formats. You are also
required to adhere to your state. What if the standards were
different? What if the data formats were different, what if you did
distance education and had students from multiple states and did
funding and non funding? What if QLD did not abide by the regulatory
rule of the TOID being a ten character alpha-numeric field matching
the TOID on the TGA. That's the standard, but guess what? It is
numeric, has 2 leading zeroes, and has nothing to do with the TOID.
What if you are reporting to other states? How can this be a
relational database that holds the consistent key between shared
clients in different states when one place you report to expects one
thing, the other expects something else? This is just one out of
about 7 inconsistencies we have pointed out to the NCVER and ASQA.
Their position has been essentially no response. We have worked
extremely hard to satisfy every combination whilst saving you the
most time. Could this be why the Minister of Industry Mr. Ian
Macfarlane has ordered a task force to deal with issues and
complaints about ASQA? Could this be why everybody seemed to be
getting rejected data when they are under obligation of an Act of
parliament that does not allow changing of "before the line" fields,
but the states do it anyway.
What a mess. Now it is
constantly under review and the sole reason why our software (in our
opinion) is the best. Your can comply with any authority. Don't have
to pay for support, because we cannot support a moving system that
your are obliged to abide to. Please read closely the Data
Provisions Instrument which is now part of the VET Quality Framework
and take a look. Our system can be installed on as many PC's as you
like with as many databases satisfying as many
contracts/states/inconsistencies there is. We offer data support for
a fee only, because RTOs have to ensure where the responsibility
lies, otherwise simply face the possibility to fail an audit. So pay
once, never again - is the way we stand and we open the door to the
entire data and questions and exporting engine which is yours and
will ever be changing.
If your provider offers more and makes you
feel at ease, to satisfy any combination of reporting activity and
charges you a support fee for it, it is because the feature doesn't
exist potentially - so what are you really paying for? You could be
paying for their time to complete work that has not yet been done,
or to fix their bugs only! If you think by showing an invoice of an AVETMISS system and an email address or a phone number is enough to
pass on the responsibility of the CEO, think again. Our system makes
you confident because apart from us doing the hard work and creating
the main templates you are knowledge with the fact the you
essentially created a system yourself that you can change with a
seconds noticed. We gain point you to the Act and the responsibility
of the provider when you are facing potentially civil or criminal
Why we believe you must transfer
to avoid failing audits. We proved it under the Act. No other provider
AVETMISS NOW will import all your compliant
AVETMISS 7.0 records for a state into a license on our software for FREE
if you choose to changeover now (limited time only). You will also
get 20% off, until the normal price kicks in. IT IS VITAL (and
please do your research) that you MUST change over or risk failing
In response to our viable claims in our marketing:
You are advised to attain your own legal advice and read every word of that website. Furthermore, it is your obligation to know the Acts and we are pointing you to them. Regardless of which AVETMISS provider you choose we felt it necessary to inform you.
We want to tell you what you need
to know and what the competitors are not telling you. The million
dollar question is: Do you want to pass your audits, or do you think
that the Student Management System will pass them for you?
The Data Provision Requirements outline the requirements for
applicants and registered training organisations (RTOs) to capture
and provide data to ASQA.
The data required relates to registration and performance
information, including quality indicator data and information
derived from the Australian Vocational Education and Training
Management of Information Statistical Standard (AVETMISS). The AVETMISS national data standard is the standard for VET
providers operating in Australia that ensures consistent and
accurate capture of VET information about students, their courses,
units of activity and the qualifications reported. AVETMISS is the
mechanism for national reporting in the VET system. The Data
Provision Requirements require relevant applicants and RTOs to show
that they have adequate systems to capture and report on this data
against the agreed quality indicators and the
Provider Collection Data Requirements Policy. The
Data Provision Requirements are a legislative instrument
made by the Federal Minister for Tertiary Education, Skills, Jobs
and Workplace Relations under subsection 187(1) of the
Vocational Education and Training Regulator Act 2011.
AVETMISS NOW! is the ONLY Student Management System rebuilt to
cater for any RTO small to Enterprise TO NOT ONLY PASS THE POLITICS
BUT TO PASS AUDITS, WRITTEN BY AUDITORS AND RECOMMENDED BY AUDITORS
(REFER TO ASQA SNR 6, 8, AND 9)
Now with --- Future Proof Protection ---. This software puts you in
control of your student records and any "not for publication" RTO
information. You decide the way that you want to build your Student
Database NAT files to suit both you and your regulator's specific
You will never have to download updates or pay ongoing fees to
anyone EVER again. Your AVETMISS NOW has the answer to all of
ever-changing NAT file concerns.
It can be networked or kept on one computer - your choice. But only
one person can make changes to information at a time to prevent
errors. AVETMISS NOW meets the reporting requirements (provided you
understand your legislative requirements) for every state in
Australia (and can prove this by using test mode and your correct
data) built to help you commit to your legislative changes.
Why is our system so much better? Our system comes pre-configured to today's VET Provider Collection
and NAT reporting etc. The examples are intended to spark your
creativity as we have developed a very simple user friendly "AI"
allowing you to make your own internal and regulatory NAT changes,
to abide by your funding rules and stay in control of your
legislative requirements. Why we believe our software is the only compliant AVETMISS
software in the country? It is our belief after looking at the SNR's, new AQTF Standards and
being in the industry collectively with a team of auditors,
ex-regulator staff and data analysts that there seems to be a
contradictory difference between what you need to demonstrate at
audit (which can happen at any time) and the ability to understand
and adapt the data at a moments notice, between our software and
others. We do not in an way intend to give legal advice, but we suggest you
attain legal advice in relation to the following factors:
How can you demonstrate compliance on the spot if someone else is
hosting or controlling both your data and cannot change a system
just for you within a couple of minutes?
How can you demonstrate your
understanding of contractual rules and provisions if you do not have
any knowledge or capacity to access them dynamically and change them
on the fly. Remember an audit can happen at any time with or without
notice. If you read the Data Provisions legal instrument are you
willing to put your civil and criminal liability in the hands of a
third party (potentially a competitor)?
Our system teaches you to modify,
create, adapt and comply with future and current changes. You can
even add your own data collection formats, questions and NAT file
positions on the fly within seconds.
The states/ASQA failed to
be nationally consistent. We proved it. In contact with our CEO,
the Minister admits to creating a
AVETMISS NOW! caters for these inconsistencies,
that haven't been thought through well enough. AVETMISS NOW! gives
you back the power to satisfy both state and National Requirements
(of course attain legal advice), and we give you the tool to
do it. Remember, we will offer a FREE upgrade
supporting USI legislation by 24th Oct 2015.
DYNAMIC NAT REPORTING

conditions of registration responsiveness requirements.
You own the data, you need the data, you are required by law to keep
the data. Why risk it with anyone else?
MAKE IT YOUR OWN AND RUN A VERSION WITH YOUR OWN INTERNAL DATA! This software is not just about compliance. It is a student
management system with an open dynamic exporting facility. You can
edit and make your own corporation's version of NAT files for any
purpose. COMPLY WITH LEGISLATION AND PASS AUDITS. Our software is designed by auditors sand industry experts. A
software package receipt does not pass audit. Our software makes it
easy for you to understand exactly where everything fits in and the
rules you need to know which you need control of to be compliant..
Run as many version as you like with one license - and no extra fees
- all in-house, the way it should be. Why be restricted to hefty
multi-user licensing fees or fees to accommodate for different
contracts or PC's. We do not lock down a software to any PC. It's
yours, it's dynamic, use it how you wish. PROTECT YOURSELF AT AUDITS. SEEK LEGAL
ADVICE. READ THIS FREE EXAMPLE DEMONSTRATING HOW YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE
IN WHAT WE SAY: Also some very valued and useful information to all RTO's who
received the update from ASQA regarding the policy of auditors not
allowing you to record audits as written by way of email from ASQA
not so long ago. You are encouraged to seek your own legal advice on
this matter. What we can tell you is we wrote to ASQA asking them to
correct the article and not deceive the RTOs, as it is the
impression that if the auditor abandons or refuses to perform their
statutory duty due to this then it seems that the RTO may be in a
detrimental situation even if they may have followed the law. you
may be detrimental.
Unfortunately they neglected to mention that in at least 3 states it
is perfectly legal to record any conversation of which you are a
party of whether or not the other party concedes. The question is
usually whether the information can be admitted as evidence and that
is a question for a member of a tribunal or a court. ASQA first
denied our thoughts on this matter - not being 100% true, and once
shown the Victorian legislation, they merely turned a blind eye.
That is why we encourage RTOs to get their own legal advice
Would you put your business, staff, contractors and personal record
in the hands of a third party in this new challenging legislatively
powerful environment? Think about it.
We have really simplified things to make it so much easier. The
first stage is providing us with your exact RTO number from the
training.gov.au website and the exact CEO or head contact email
Then we proceed to payment and send the details relating to these
two items. No more is there stringent licensing rules. It is multI-user.
Install and share it with as many people as you wish. Licencing is
generated per state, so please ensure you enter the correct state in
the dropdown box when you order.
