Registered Training Organisation
A Registered Training Organisation (RTO) is an organisation providing training to students resulting in qualifications that are recognised and accepted by industry and other educational institutions.
As an apprentice or trainee will undertake study with a RTO; in conjunction with learning on-the-job you will ultimately achieve your qualification.
This training may be delivered at school, online, at the RTO or on-site depending on the RTO, trade or qualification.
The RTO may be government owned for example, TAFE NSW or an industry RTO such as Master Builders.
