Public Safety Training Package (PSTP)

Training Packages are sets of nationally-endorsed standards and qualifications for recognising and assessing people's skills. They set a national industry standard for skills, and are used as the basis for most of the programs delivered in the vocational education and training system, including New Apprenticeships , training courses, VET in schools programs, recognition of existing skills, and occupational licensing. Training Packages are national products, which means that qualifications delivered and assessed in one state or territory are recognised across Australia. In nearly all industries, Training Packages have replaced accredited courses. Training Packages are national products, developed with industry, so they hold national recognition, and are not owned by an individual training provider. Only Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) are able to issue Training Package qualifications or statements of attainment.
