Frequency of financial attestations for PTEs

Under the Private Training Establishment Registration Rules 2018, all private training establishments (PTEs) are required to send a Chartered Accountant Professional Attestation to NZQA every year within five months of their financial year end.

This attests to the financial viability and financial practices of the PTE based on a financial audit or review.

Category 1 providers

Under Rule 6 of the PTE Registration Rules, The Chartered Accountant Professional Attestation is only required every two years. These providers will receive different reminder letters from NZQA.

Relaxed requirements for Provider Category 1 do not change any of the requirements for PTEs to provide audit and/or attestation information about Student Fee Protection arrangements.
