    Request to extend (or administratively renew) accreditation of course

    You need to complete this form if you are a course owner and you wish to:

    ? request the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA), as the national VET regulator, extend the accreditation of a course

    ? request the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA), as delegate for the Queensland Training and Employment Recognition Council, administratively renew (extend) the accreditation of a course. You are strongly advised to read the information about the process for extending the accreditation of a course, available from the ASQA website at www.asqa.gov.au, as accreditation will only be

    extended under what ASQA’s considers to be ‘exceptional circumstances’.

    Note that if an application to renew the accreditation of a VET accredited course, as defined under the National Vocational Education and Training Regulator Act 2011 (Cth), has been made, the

    accreditation of the course is taken to continue until the application is decided and no formal request to extend the accreditation of the course is required.

    ? Section 1Course owner details

    ? Section 2Request details

    Unless otherwise indicated, you must provide a response to each question and to each part of each question.

    A separate form is required for each course.
