Is Watto Training an Approved WA course provider?
Watto Training does not deliver training and assessment of driver/rider trainers in WA. However, candidates can travel to Qld and do their course with Watto Training.
How can Watto Training train and assess me to be a qualified instructor as an interstate training provider?
The WA Transport Department will recognise TL141218 and TLI41318 Certificates issued by interstate Recognised Training Organisations (RTOs). This process is known as Mutual Recognition.
What is Mutual Recognition?
The rationale underpinning Mutual Recognition is that the quality assurance mechanisms to which RTOs are subject are sufficient to ensure integrity in assessment and certification by RTOs. The National Principles for Mutual Recognition underpin the operation of State and Territory Recognition Authorities within the context of the Australian Recognition Framework.
An RTO must accept and mutually recognise the decisions of any other RTO or body in partnership with an RTO, thereby ensuring the mutual acceptance throughout Australia of the qualifications and Statements of Attainment awarded by RTOs.
Each State or Territory will always mutually recognise the decisions of all other States and Territories in registering a training organisation, thereby ensuring the mutual acceptance throughout Australia of the qualifications and Statements of Attainment awarded by RTOs.
Mutual Recognition enables an RTO to operate within other States or Territories within the original scope of registration without a further formal recognition process or payment of additional fees.
RTOs wishing to operate in more than one State/Territory should generally only be required to communicate with a single Recognition Authority, the Primary Recognition Authority unless they wish to do otherwise. The Primary Recognition Authority will usually be the one in which the organisation was first registered and/or it has its major locus of operations. RTOs may elect to change their Primary Recognition Authority.
