Welcome to the December 2020 issue of the VET BI report.
New RTOs registrations and other activity were back to a normal levels this month. One RTO suspended but others given second chances, as are most these days.
There were 9 new RTO registrations again this month, with 7 of them in NSW! Will they change the NSW number plates to “The No-Lockdown State”?

Training component changes
The automotive services package got a major update, and mix of further updates in construction and other areas.
Note that the numbers here are not just the count of qualifications but the count of units changed within those qualifications, including every unit (including possible electives) within a new qualification replacing an old ones, so the figures appear inflated compared to previous reports but are more representative of relative volume of change.
A major overhaul for the business, construction, agriculture and forestry sectors: Business (2091), Building (1025), Agriculture (512), Forestry (164).
There were a large number of changes in other areas too – December must be the time for training package (re)writing. Better check our scope too as there are too may to list.
Food production and processing had a big month for skill set updates: Agriculture (19), Meat (12), Forestry (5).
A focus on business and employment courses this month: Training (14), Business (11), Welfare (8).
A large and wide range of units were updated in December: Business (669), Equipment (665), Building (659), Forestry (407), Agriculture (394), Demolition (140), First Aid (111), Plumbing (97), Safety (72).
Again it might be worth checking your units on TGA as the list is too long this month!
