The course packet is used to report data on the approved courses that are offered by the provider. The data collected through a course packet is referenced by one or more course admission packets.

Scope

Providers are required to report a course packet for each ‘approved course’ in which they intend to admit one or more students.

Structure and reporting requirement

Element Name Reporting requirement Deadline
*E307 Course code Required for all in scope courses Before the first course admission is linked to the course
E308 Course name Required for all in scope courses Before the first course admission is linked to the course
*E350 Course of study load Required for all in scope courses Before the first course admission is linked to the course
*E596 Standard course duration Required for all in scope courses Before the first course admission is linked to the course
*E609 Course effective from date Required for all in scope courses Before the first course admission is linked to the course
  E610 Course effective to date Optional n/a

*These elements must be reported together when a new course packet is created

Uniqueness

Each course packet must have a value for E307 (course code) that is unique to the provider. The course code must match the training.gov.au (TGA) course code for the course.

Revising and adding data

A provider can update, correct or add data already submitted through a course packet after the initial packet is reported, as per the table below.

Element Revisions required
E307: Course code Corrections only
E308: Course name Update to current value
E350: Course of study load Corrections only
E596: Standard course duration Update to current value
E609: Course effective from date Corrections only
E610: Course effective to date Optional update to current value

A course packet cannot be deleted if it is linked to an active course admission, exit award or aggregate award record. All revisions made to elements in the course packet will apply to all enrolment records linked to the course, including historical enrolment and completion records. Revisions should therefore only be made where data has been incorrectly reported through a genuine administrative error.
