Validation Committee

The Validation committee is an internal committee comprised of VQA staff from the Quality Assurance and Compliance Division and the Standards and Qualifications Division. Its role is to undertake preliminary evaluation of all applications for registration, course accreditation and approval to ensure that the application forms are properly completed and that the evidence provided is valid, sufficient, reliable, current and authentic.

On a case-by-case basis, the VQA may engage an external advisor to participate in the Validation Committee to ensure sufficient expertise across the Committee members to make a judgement on the validity, sufficiency, reliability, currency and authenticity of the application documents.
