HLT Training Package Updates

06 November 2023 HLT Training Package Update: ASQA Greenlights Extended Transition for HLT40113 Certificate IV in Indigenous Health Care

The Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) has exercised its authority to approve transition periods beyond the standard guidelines, as outlined in Clause 1.26 (a) of the Standards for Registered Training Organisations 2015. This decision comes in response to an application for an extended transition period for the HLT40113 Certificate IV in Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Primary Health Care of the HLT training package.

ASQA, guided by the principles in the “Guidance for Providers – Learner Transition,” emphasised that extensions are only considered when there is a demonstrated genuine disadvantage to a specific cohort of learners if such extensions are not granted.

The approved extension affects the transition period for training, assessment, and certification issuance for the mentioned qualification. Originally set to conclude on 31 December 2024, the transition period has now been extended to 31 July 2025. Thanks to this HLT training update, all students enrolled in this qualification must either successfully complete their studies or be transferred to replacement qualifications by the new transition end date.

This decision is exclusively applicable to students who commenced their training and/or assessment in the qualification on or before 13 December 2023. The extended transition period is designed to accommodate and support this specific student cohort.

ASQA, in this HLT training package update, engaged in consultations with relevant authorities, including the Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority, the Training Accreditation Council of Western Australia, the Department of Employment and Workplace Relations, and the Jobs and Skills Council with operational responsibility for the HLT Health Training Package. These consultations aimed to ensure a comprehensive understanding of the implications and considerations surrounding the extended transition period.

Importantly, the HLT40113 Certificate IV in Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Primary Health Care will continue to be included in the scope of registration for RTOs until the conclusion of the extended transition period. This decision reflects a commitment to the ongoing support and recognition of the importance of this qualification in the healthcare sector.

This HLT training update underscores ASQA’s dedication to facilitating a smooth and equitable transition for learners, recognising the unique circumstances of the specified student cohort.

14 September 2023 HLT Training Update: ASQA Approved Extended Transition Period for HLT30113 and HLT40213 Qualifications

After consulting with the Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority (VRQA) and the Training Accreditation Council of Western Australia (TAC WA), the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) approved an extended transition period of two Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander health care qualifications within the health (HLT) training package in Australia. This HLT training update means learners have more time to complete their studies and gain their certifications in the following qualifications:

With ASQA’s recent decision, the transition period for training, assessment, and certification issuance for the specified qualifications moved from 31 December 2024 to 31 July 2025. The extended transition period means registered training organisations (RTOs) like you can keep the HLT30113 and HLT40213 qualifications in your scope of registration until the deadline.

The HLT training update only applies to learners enrolled in formal training and/or assessment in their course on or before 13 December 2023. They must complete their training or receive certification by the new transition end date. Alternatively, students may choose to transfer to the replacement qualifications from the HLT training package.

The approval of the extended transition period came after ASQA found the need for an extension to avoid genuine disadvantage to learners who are currently enrolled in the courses and cannot gain their certification within the initial transition period.

1 August 2023 HLT Training Package Update: ASQA Approves Extended Transition Period for Health Services Qualifications

To ensure a smooth transition for learners, the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) has granted an extended transition period to certain health (HLT) training package qualifications. With this HLT training update, students pursuing the following qualifications now have more time to complete their studies and receive their certifications:

Instead of the previous deadline, these qualifications can now be completed until 31 July 2024. This extension allows new students to enrol in these courses throughout the extended period. However, it’s important to note that all students must either finish their studies or transfer to alternative qualifications before the transition ends.

ASQA made this decision in consultation with the Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority (VRQA) and the Training Accreditation Council of Western Australia (TAC WA, ensuring that no learners face unnecessary obstacles in achieving their educational goals.

During the extended transition period, these qualifications of the HLT training package will remain valid and available at registered training organisations (RTOs). This move is part of ASQA’s commitment to supporting students and making the learning process as accessible as possible.

ASQA has recently announced the approval of an extended transition period for HLT42015 – Certificate IV In Massage Therapy and HLT52015 – Diploma Of Remedial Massage qualifications.

The extended training, assessment, and certification issuance period for these qualifications will conclude on 14 December 2024.

Extended Transition Period for HLT42015 and HLT52015

To ensure fair treatment of learners, ASQA only considers applications for extended transition periods when it can be demonstrated that learners would face genuine disadvantages if the extension were not granted.

The extended transition period for HLT42015 and HLT52015 qualifications will provide additional time for learners to complete their training, assessment, and certification. This period will end on 14 December 2024.

Enrolments and Commencements

During the extended transition period, new enrolments and commencements in HLT42015 and HLT52015 qualifications will be allowed beyond 13 December 2023. However, it’s crucial for all students to either complete their studies or transfer to the replacement qualification by 14 December 2024.

Continued Registration for Qualifications

Throughout the extended transition period, HLT42015 and HLT52015 qualifications will remain on the scope of registration for the respective RTOs. This allows RTOs to continue delivering these qualifications until the conclusion of the extended transition period.

Conclusion

ASQA’s approval of an extended transition period for HLT42015 and HLT52015 qualifications demonstrates their commitment to prioritising learner well-being and facilitating a seamless transition to the replacement qualification.

The support from industry associations, along with consultations with regulatory bodies, ensures that the process aligns with standards and addresses the needs of both learners and RTOs. This decision upholds the quality and integrity of vocational education and training in Australia.

29 May 2023 HLT54115 Training Package Extension Update

ASQA has taken a proactive step to support learners in the vocational education and training (VET) sector by approving an extended transition period for the HLT54115 Diploma of Nursing qualification. This decision comes in response to the genuine disadvantage that learners may face if not provided with more time to complete their studies due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

ASQA’s Commitment to Learner Transition

ASQA, following the Guidance for Providers – Learner Transition, recognises the importance of addressing any potential disadvantages faced by learners during the transition period. In some cases, ASQA has the authority to approve longer transition periods beyond the standard requirements outlined in the Standards for Registered Training Organisations 2015.

Extended Transition Period Approval

ASQA has recently granted an extended transition period for the HLT54115 Diploma of Nursing qualification to all providers with the scope for delivery.

This means that the training, assessment, and certification issuance period for this qualification will now end on 12 March 2024, providing learners with more time to complete their studies.

The decision to extend the transition end date for the HLT54115 Diploma of Nursing qualification was made in collaboration with the Australian Nursing & Midwifery Accreditation Council, showing a commitment to keeping quality standards while considering the unique circumstances and challenges faced by learners during the pandemic.

Continued Scope of Registration

Throughout the extended transition period, the HLT54115 Diploma of Nursing qualification will remain on the provider’s scope of registration, ensuring learners have ongoing access to the necessary resources and support to successfully complete their studies.

Conclusion

ASQA’s approval of an extended transition period for the HLT54115 Diploma of Nursing qualification reflects their dedication to supporting learners in the VET sector during these challenging times. By providing added time for completion, ASQA acknowledges the genuine disadvantages faced by learners and aims to ensure they have the necessary support to achieve their qualification. This collaborative approach highlights the commitment of ASQA and accreditation bodies to maintain quality standards while adapting to the evolving needs of learners.

24 February 2023 HLT Training Updates: Postponement of New Infection Prevention and Control Units

The Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) has postponed its implementation of the new Infection Prevention and Control units later on 1 July 2023. The decision was made due to feedback from stakeholders and to allow RTOs for more adjustment time with their training delivery for the new HLT training updates.

This delay benefits RTOs since they are given more time to plan and make changes in training delivery. Delivering the superseded HLTINF001 and HLTINF003 units has also been extended until 30 June 2023, which allows RTOs to complete training for students who aren’t done with the units yet.

RTOs with these qualifications and skill sets must deliver the HLTINF006 – Apply Basic Principles And Practices Of Infection Prevention And Control or HLTINF007 – Implement And Monitor Infection Prevention And Control Policies And Procedures units by 1 July 2023.

Here are the qualifications and skillsets with the HLTINF001 and HLTINF003 units respectively:

Qualifications with HLTINF001

Skill Sets Containing HLTINF001

  • CHCSS00114 – Entry into Care Roles Skill Set

7 February 2023 HLT Training Updates: New HLT Units of Competency Endorsed to Meet Infection Prevention and Control Standards

In a significant move aimed at enhancing the quality of healthcare services and HLT training package in Australia, Skills Ministers have endorsed two new Infection Prevention and Control units of competency. The new units in the HLT training update version 8, HLTINF006 – Apply basic principles and practices of infection prevention and control and HLTINF007 – Implement and monitor infection prevention and control standards, policies and procedures, replace the now superseded units HLTINF001 and HLTINF003.

This change has come in response to the need for updated skills and knowledge in the industry and to meet the growing national standards in infection prevention and control. All 29 current CHC and HLT qualifications containing the previous version will be updated to include the new units by 28 February 2023, with no transition period.

This move will have far-reaching implications for the healthcare industry and HLT training package in Australia, impacting registered training organisations (RTOs), students, and employers alike.

This development underlines the importance of continuous education and training in the healthcare sector. With this HLT training update, healthcare professionals can be assured of staying ahead in the fight against infections and illnesses and providing quality care to patients.
