What is RTO Partnering?
RTO Partnering is a recognised alliance between an enterprise and a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) with the express purpose of helping the enterprise deliver training outcomes to the highest quality, and aligned to nationally accredited and industry recognised competency standards. RTO Partnering is a robust and cost-effective business solution when an enterprise has the desire, need and capacity to delivery personalised training in ways, at times, locations and settings that suit their business. The benefits of this are that enterprises are never limited to external training providers dictating course schedules and often delivering training off-site, or at inconvenient locations.
It is costly and complex to start and manage a Registered Training Organisation, however we can offer you all of the advantages by working in partnership with Australian Training Management. This RTO Partnership is an arrangement where we partner with you and we undertake all of the RTO-related work, allowing you to focus primarily on your core business goals.

How it works
Where a partnership is formed the RTO is responsible for ensuring the quality of training delivery and assessment. In accordance with its’ quality assurance procedures Australian Training Management works with nominated in-house trainers and assessors to qualify them as ‘approved trainers’. Operating under the partnering arrangement they become ‘approved on-site associates’.
Issue of Recognised Qualifications
On receipt of notification from the approved on-site associate that a candidate has met the requirements of the nominated Unit of Competence in accordance with the quality procedures developed for the partnering arrangement, Australian Training Management issues an A4 sized Statement of Attainment and wallet card (if applicable).
Training Advocacy for On-site Associates
Our partnering arrangements include a training advocacy service to approved on-site associates, providing regular updates of changes within the VET sector that affect the partnering arrangements and direct access to ATM management for advice on training related issues.
Audit of Training and Assessment Conducted by Approved On-site Associates
Australian Training Management as the RTO has the responsibility for assuring the quality of training and assessment conducted by all partner organisations. As such, we have set up systems and processes for monitoring and evaluating assessment methods, evidence requirements and judgments regarding the occupational competence of learners. Australian Training Management conducts regular on-site audits of approved on-site associates operating under the partnering arrangement. These are ‘by arrangement’ with the partner organisation, to ensure there are no surprises.
