STA versions of AVETMIS Standard

8 March 2017 Revised: 11 January 2024

Individual STAs may differ slightly from NCVER in their AVETMISS reporting requirements. This page contains each STA's own version of the AVETMIS Standard for VET Providers.

STA specific fields

STAs may require information that is not collected as part of the AVETMIS Standard. This information is captured in fields positioned after the national data collection file length. This approach provides STAs with the ability to capture this additional data within the AVETMISS NAT files.

NCVER is committed to reducing burden and as such we are working with the STAs via the AVETMISS Technical Reference Advisory Committee to consolidate these fields wherever possible and make them available from the NCVER portal.

The following table is a consolidated list of state specific fields by NAT file and jurisdiction. State specific fields table

State training authorities: If you require a new state specific field please review the table above first, consult with any STAs where an applicable field already exist and consolidate where possible.

If a new field or a change to an existing state specific field is required, complete the Data Element Definitions template (21 KB Word) and submit to Once finalised, any changes to state specific reporting will be updated on the table to ensure STAs and SMS vendors have the most current information.

If you have any questions about the information on this webpage please contact us to discuss.
