The national training system is a key driver of Australia’s economic and social growth. For more than a decade, the Australian Government and State and Territory Governments have been working collaboratively with industry to develop a national training system that provides the basis for high-quality, industry developed and nationally recognised training to approximately one in nine working-age Australians. Through a national network of over 4,400 public and private registered training organisations, over 1.5 million Australians from all ages, backgrounds and locations participate in vocational education and training each year.
UIT adheres to the standards of the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) and is therefore able to deliver and assess nationally recognised vocational training and issue nationally recognised vocational qualifications.

As of 1 July 2011 the national regulator Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) came into effect, for more information on ASQA please visit www.asqa.gov.au/.
The Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) is the national regulator for Australia’s vocational education and training sector. ASQA regulates courses and training providers to ensure nationally approved quality standards are met
The VET Quality Framework (which contains the Standards for National VET Regulator (NVR) Registered Training Organisations that replaced the Australian Quality Training Framework as the standard for ASQA regulated RTOs), is a set of standards which assures a nationally consistent approach to the registration of training organisations seeking to deliver training, assess competency outcomes and issue Australian Qualifications Framework qualifications and/or Statements of Attainment. It also ensures the recognition of training providers and the Australian Qualifications Framework qualifications and Statement of Attainment they issue, across Australia.
