What do members have to say about the benefits of their ERTOA membership?
McDonald’s Australia Ltd has been a member of ERTOA since the association began and we continue to benefit from this membership. ERTOA gives enterprise RTO’s the opportunity to discuss and resolve questions and issues that are particular to our type of RTO. They provide this support as well as giving us a strong national voice in issues that affect and impact our business.
As a member representative of ERTOA I have the opportunity to network with over 44 RTO managers across Australia involved in enterprises from very diverse industries. My enterprise has used this network for RTO questions and also learning and development practice issues. The information has allowed us to influence practice in our organisation by sighting evidence of other companies solutions to similar situations.
As members of ERTOA we have always been supported and given guidance for legislative changes. Particularly resources that were developed and provided by ERTOA were instrumental in helping us through a re-registration audit under AQTF2007 without any corrective actions. Interactions with other ERTOA members often provide opportunities to further develop our knowledge and skills in the RTO/VET world.
Being a member of ERTOA has been of great assistance to Defence in that we are able to exchange ideas, views and problems with other Enterprise RTOs, also membership has enabled us to give responses and views when new regulatory changes are proposed and not be a “voice in the wilderness”.
