Education for remote health practitioners

CRANAplus is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO No. 40719)  and proud of its reputation as the leading provider of remote-based training for health practitioners across Australia and her territories.

  • Registered training organisations (RTOs) are those training providers, registered by the Federal Government’s “Australian Skills Quality Authority(ASQA), to deliver vocational education and training (VET) services. 

  • ASQA promotes quality training so that students, employers, and industry have confidence in Australia’s training sector.

  • Nationally Recognised training is training that has a defined skill and knowledge level that has been nationally established as required for industry.

The Nationally Recognised Training symbol shown below identifies those Courses containing at least one Unit of Competency. Details of the Units will be shown clearly under each Course’s Overview.


Course participants benefit from:

  • national recognition of Units of Competency gained
  • knowing that their training is being delivered by an organisation which meets national standards
  • enhanced career prospects as the units of competency are based on identified industry needs
  • access to recognition of prior learning (RPL), also known as recognition of current competency (RCC).
