AVETMISS 8

AVETMISS 8 is the new release to the AVETMISS Standard which will apply to all VET training activities from January 1st, 2018.

While you can access and download an overview of the changes and document detailing the specifics of the changes directly from the NCVER website, Wisenet has put this resource page together for you to get an overview and, an understanding of how we are incorporating these changes in Wisenet.

Here is a summary of the changes that we have added and updated in Wisenet.

Please Note!

Wisenet has only received communication from NCVER, RAPT and VIC.  Hence we are assuming all other States only require the National changes.

If you have further information then please do share with us so we can update other VET providers it may impact.

New Fields

There are a number of new Fields, some of which are already collected in Wisenet.  All new fields have been added against the correct Wisenet section, and at other levels to allow easier setting of defaults.

The new Fields that we have added are further explained in the table below:

Important Note:

  • AVETMISS 7 and AVETMISS 8 exports can be ran at the same time. It will auto select the correct export based on selected year
    • i.e: AVETMISS 8 exports will read from the new field Apprenticeship Identifier and will no longer export the RefExternal number
  • AVETMISS 8 exports will be available to run in late 2017
  • The Survey Status is found Client Profile> Personal Details
  • The default value of this Status should be set to A – Available for survey use

Action Required

  • This will be automatically defaulted to upon creation of profile
  • If the learner states otherwise this will need to be changed.
S&S System Update
  • Smart and Skilled updated their system on 8th January to only accept AV8. To accommodate for this Wisenet has made 2017 to report in AV8.
    • If AV7 is reported  RejectID 1485 can occur due to their being Unit Enrolments starting in 2018 but not being reported using the AV8 format
    • NSW exports require all Unit Enrolment training activity (Reject ID 1111 or 1113) to be exported and hence we cannot just exclude future Unit Enrolments from being exported
