The AVETMISS Compliant Software Register contains a list of publicly available student management systems or data entry tools that software vendors have registered as being AVETMISS compliant. This information is designed to help registered training organisations (RTOs) choose an appropriate system.
A vendor may register a software system as AVETMISS compliant if the system fulfils the minimum AVETMISS compliance criteria of producing correctly formatted AVETMISS files.
Important: An AVETMISS compliant software system ensures correctly formatted AVETMISS files but may not check all of your data values. Therefore, your data may still contain errors that require correction before they can be submitted to your State/Territory Training Authority (STA) or NCVER. You can check if your data are AVETMISS compliant by validating your data in NCVER’s free web-based AVETMISS validation software.
AVETMISS compliance pertains to the national reporting requirements only. It does not give assurance that data produced by a software product will meet state or territory reporting requirements.
Product registration is optional. While we aim at encouraging all vendors to register their products, there may be some AVETMISS compliant systems available that are not listed on the register.
Before consulting the information in the register below, please read the conditions of use:

Vendors offering student management systems or data entry tools that comply with the minimum requirement for AVETMISS compliance may register their software for the AVETMISS Compliant Software Register.
Product registration is optional. If you wish to register, please complete the registration form and follow the instructions for submission. You will be notified of your application status within five working days.
NCVER reserves the right to change a registration or remove a product from the register if non-compliance is suspected until a final decision has been made.
Changes to vendor registration details
Has your software release, contact information or website address changed? Please let us know by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will update the register with your new details.
Your feedback is critical to the success of the register and we welcome your comments and suggestions.
On registered software systems
Are you particularly pleased with a product on the register? Do you have any unresolved concerns about a product? Please let us know by submitting a feedback form.
NCVER will investigate claims of AVETMISS non-compliance or misleading information regarding AVETMISS of a registered product and may change the status of a registration (including the removal of a product) if AVETMISS compliance cannot be verified.
On the AVETMISS Compliant Software Register
Please let us know of your experience with the register. What do you find useful? How could the register be improved? Please submit feedback on the register by emailing us at email@example.com
A vendor may register a student management system or a data entry tool as AVETMISS compliant when the software fulfils the minimum compliance requirement of producing AVETMISS files in the correct format.
Software systems that offer further support in producing AVETMISS files can be registered for optional compliance requirements. All levels of compliance are displayed in the register.
The data submitted by training organisations for the national collection must fully comply with AVETMISS and be error-free. Use the free web-based AVETMISS validation software to test that data are error-free.
Minimum compliance requirement
Produce AVETMISS files in the correct format
The software system must be able to export training activity data to AVETMISS text files as specified in the AVETMISS VET Provider Collection specifications. There are ten AVETMISS files that a system must be able to create. The files are:
For release 8.0, a software system must also be able to produce two additional files if they are supporting training organisations who submit data to a state/territory training authority, but whose training organisation and/or program data does not appear on Training.gov.au. These files are:
Optional compliance requirements
Verify mandatory AVETMISS fields
The software system must verify that all mandatory AVETMISS fields are populated as specified in the AVETMISS VET Provider Collection specifications for release 7.0 and/or release 8.0. Fields that include the rule ‘This field must not be blank’ are mandatory fields.
Verify AVETMISS classifications
The software system must verify the values of AVETMISS fields for which the standard defines the permitted values (e.g. Sex: ‘F – female’; ‘M – male’; ‘@ – not specified’). AVETMISS classifications are specified in the AVETMISS data element definitions for release 7.0 and/or release 8.0.
