​Updating information on the Victorian Skills Gateway website

Most course and provider information for the Victorian Skills Gateway website and the printed TAFE and Training Course Directory is sourced from the Australian Course Information Register (ACIR), managed by Hobsons Australia Pty Ltd. If you wish to promote your organisation and the training you deliver through the state-operated Victorian Skills Gateway, the printed TAFE and Training Course Directory and the TAFE and Training Line you need to register your organisation with the ACIR.

Please also ensure that your contact information is up to date with the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) or the Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority (VRQA). ​

How do I change existing entries in the Victorian Skills Gateway?

To change an existing entry in the Victorian Skills Gateway you must update the details via the ACIR (Australian Course Information Register) website. The changes will appear in the next update.

How often is the data updated?

The data is updated monthly online through the Victorian Skills Gateway and annually through the printed version of the TAFE and Training Course Directory.

What does it cost?

While there are no fees associated with being included on ACIR, the Victorian Skills Gateway website and the printed TAFE and Training Course Directory, you are required to update your information at least once a year, (more frequently if you have a change of address, scope, etc.) in order to ensure quality data. Once you have registered you will receive email reminders to update your course information.

Who looks after the Australian Course Information Register (ACIR)?

The ACIR is managed by Hobsons Australia Pty Ltd, an educational publishing organisation of Australian career and course information. The Department of Education and Training (DET) use the data to create the Victorian Skills Gateway to provide up-to-date relevant information to prospective students, career advisors, and community members about vocational education and training pathways in Victoria through print and online formats.
