Understanding the amount of training required

The AQF ‘volume of learning’ range is considered to be a starting point for RTOs determining the ‘amount of training’ required to deliver a particular qualification.

In a competency-based training environment, which is centred on demonstrated competence against industry-defined standards of performance rather than strict course durations,

students aren’t required to study for a specified number of weeks or months. Competency-based training is the concept that individuals learn at different rates as well as through different modes and different environments and that the skills and knowledge that a student has acquired previously are able to be formally recognised.
