Breakout Presentation


Presented by

George Coldham
Vice Chair, Australian Computer Society, Western Australia

As the Professional Association and peak body representing Australia’s ICT sector, ACS’ mission is to deliver authoritative independent knowledge and insight into technology, build relevant technology capacity and capability in Australia and to be a catalyst for innovative creation and adoption of technology for the benefit of commerce, governments and society.


Maintaining your industry currency and vocational competency is a key metric for any facilitator or teacher in a VET course, regardless of mode of delivery or subject matter.  Join us for this session to get an overview of your obligations and requirements, as well as tactics on how to tackle this ongoing activity in a pain free manner.

Let’s discuss how you can get industry currency and experience, and how to ensure you maintain vocational competency to stay compliant with the RTO Standards which govern all delivery of VET courses in Australia.

Lastly, a facilitated session on creative ways develop a structured PD plan, personalised to your area of delivery to assist in your pathway to compliance.
