The PIR course admission packet is used to report the admission of students into courses and provide data on aspects of the student's admission and engagement in the course. Each PIR course admission packet must be linked to an established PIR student packet and established course packet. The data collected through a PIR course admission packet may be referenced by one or more PIR unit enrolment packets

Scope

Providers are required to report a PIR course admission packet each time a student is admitted to a course of the provider where the student may need to enrol in units of study to complete the course.
