|Description oflicensing requirements(if indicated above)||This qualification must be delivered as per the packaging rules, even if a core unit/named elective has been superseded, until such time as the qualification has been updated and this update is reflected on the National Register, training.gov.au, and is listed on the RTO’s Scope of Registration.There are many situations where it is considered beneficial for the student to receive the updated training that reflects the current skill needs of the relevant industry so a provider may choose to deliver the updated unit, issue a statement of attainment for those unit/s and then provide credit transfer – by mapping backwards – to the units named within the qualification.• The VET units need to be deemed ‘equivalent’ for credit transfer to be assigned• If the units are ‘not equivalent’ the provider will map the units to identify equivalence in content and learning outcomes (from the updated unit back to the superseded unit)• If this is not possible, the provider may need to match the content, but then undertake an RPL process to ascertain competence against each unit of competency.• This would only need to do this once, then can be used for future decisions in the same circumstances.If this still does not ascertain a ‘competent’ result, the student may need to undertake gap training against the destination qualification.|
