AVETMISS Validation Software

The web-based AVETMISS Validation Software (AVS) is a file validation and data submission system designed for training organisations and agencies to provide data to the National VET Provider Collection. The USI Transcript Update Tool, which is accessed within AVS, enables RTOs to make updates to USI transcripts.

Data Entry Tool

NCVER's Data Entry Tool is a free web–based software tool that allows smaller RTOs to capture client training data and produce AVETMISS compliant NAT files.


The client support team has developed a range of resources to assist you with meeting your AVETMISS reporting requirements.
