From 1 October 2017, changes to the NQF will come into effect and supervisor certificates will no longer be required (except in WA). In the lead up to 1 October, services can use the service supervisor certificate.
A person covered by the service supervisor certificate does not need to apply to the regulatory authority for an individual supervisor certificate. This means you do not need to provide evidence to the regulatory authority of your qualification and experience, and do not need to pay the $30 application fee.
Service supervisor certificates are still required within WA after 1 October 2017.
Regulatory authorities in each state and territory are responsible for assessing most applications and notifications. They are encouraging services to use the online system and most forms can be submitted using the National Quality Agenda IT System (NQA ITS).
