Vocational Education and Training

Vocational Education and Training (VET) provides people with the skills and knowledge needed for jobs in particular industries. These include construction, trades, hospitality, agriculture and aquaculture, furniture design and manufacturing, heritage building skills, community services, recreation, administration and IT. Often these skills are gained through a training organisation as well as in the workplace.

VET is a national system and therefore a VET qualification gained in Tasmania is recognised throughout Australia by employers and VET providers.

There are over 100 registered training organisations (RTOs) in Tasmania.

 The National Training Information Service website provides details of RTOs.  You can search by course and region at the website.
