AVETMISS support for RTOs

9 June 2016


The client support team at NCVER provides:

  • assistance to RTOs to help meet their AVETMISS data reporting requirements
  • help in using the AVETMISS Validation Software (AVS) and Data Entry Tool (DET)
  • communication around the reporting deadlines.

The reporting of AVETMISS data can be a complex process. This fact sheet and this video are good starting points.

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.

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.

Get ready for release 8.0

Feedback from RTOs and student management system (SMS) vendors has contributed to a new release of the Standard, release 8.0, which will apply to all training activity from 1 January 2018.

Documentation outlining the changes is available at AVETMISS 8.0 for VET providers: what’s changing from release 7.0. You should refer these to ensure your systems and processes are ready for the first collection under the new release.
