To complete a FOLS application you must provide evidence that you have completed nationally recognised training for the particular skills recorded on your FOLS. This will be a Certificate of Competency or Statement of Attainment.
Nationally recognised training is any program or course that is recognised across Australia and is quality assured by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA). It includes studying at a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) and completing a unit of competency, skill set, or certificate/qualification from the FWP Forest and Wood Products Training Package. Nationally recognised training courses are listed on training.gov.au.
How can I tell if training is nationally recognised:
- Look for the Nationally Recognised Training logo
- Make sure at the completion of training you are provided with the Statement of Attainment for your record and FOLS
- Have it conducted by a Registered Training Organisation (RTO)
