Newbery Consulting VET News – 5th June 2019

Hello and welcome to VET News,

ASQA has announced the schedule for the 2019 Training Provider Briefings. I totally advocate RTO owners and senior mangers attending these. There is so much gossip and ill informed discussion about ASQA’s agenda these days. These provider briefings are the opportunity to get it straight from the regulator and with opportunities to ask questions.

Check out the events section as there are a bevy of both paid and free events coming up which may be of interest.

Good training,

Joe Newbery
