Contracted registered training organisations of vocational education and training in Western Australia are required to submit VET activity reports through the Department of Training and Workforce Development's online reporting system.
"In order to initiate payment against Contracted Programs of Study issued through the Apprenticeship/Traineeship (Employment based) and Institutional based programs, Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) are required to report electronically validated data to the Department. The Resource Allocation Program for Training application (RAPT) has been developed as an extension to the State Training and Recognition System (STARS) to manage this electronic reporting process." - DTWD RAPT Text File Specification Version 3.3
Adopting an SMS that is RAPT data reporting compliant is an important consideration for training organisations who deliver, or wish to deliver funded training in WA.
