As Australia moves towards a new national licensing system, many preparatory changes are taking place.
Victoria, for example, plans to start using the new national system in July 08 with a further 12 months for the accredited assessor system to run concurrently before all licensing of high risk plant covered in the National Standard for Persons Performing High Risk Work, must be done through a registered training organisation (RTO) from July 2009.
Easy Guides is working hard to make sure that its training products are kept current and the customers informed of changes.
Easy Guides hope that the following items will help to keep you up to date.
