The sample files available from this page are used as an example of the format of clean AVETMISS 8 (NAT) files. They will pass validation in the AVETMISS validation software when run against the 2018 Collection Year (with the exception of Error 4704 which checks the RTO ID in the NAT00010 against the RTO ID registered for AVS).

  • Training Organisation File (NAT00010)
  • Training Organisation Delivery Location File (NAT00020)

The supplementary files (i.e. the 'A' files which may be submitted in place of the NAT00010 or NAT00030 files) have also been provided. These are provided to display the valid format only; they are not designed to pass validation with the other files listed above as they contain extra data which AVS will expect to also see in the other files.

For more information on how the supplementary files should be used, please see the Using the 'A' files page or the AVETMISS 'A' files: what are they? fact sheet.
