What is a Third-party Provider?
Third-party providers are organisations that enter a service level memorandum of understanding with Asthma Australia to deliver Nationally Accredited Training to their own clients or to inhouse staff without having to become their own RTO.

Asthma Australia will look after the compliance requirements and accreditation with the Australian Skills Quality Authority. Third-party providers are required to follow Asthma Australia’s policies and procedures when delivering training under our auspice.
Third-party Providers have access to all required training resources, including our online training portal to deliver the training to their clients, these resources include; PowerPoint Presentations, assessment tools, session plans and more.
Third-party providers are required to agree to the terms outlined in and sign memorandum of understanding with Asthma Australia prior to the partnership being approved.
