National – NAT00060 File

About this NAT File

This file is all about your list of Competencies and/or Modules and their AVETEMISS settings. There are important rules you need to know about this file that include:

a) You cannot have the same module/competency code in this file more than once.
b) The subject code & name in this file MUST match what is listed on

With regards to this rule above, this means that if you have module/competency codes and names in a similar fashion to below:

BSBWRT301A-FTWrite simple documents-FT
BSBWRT301A-PTWrite simple documents-PT

Then you MUST make sure for each one of these that in the Module/Competency screen that you have entered a Descriptive Code and Descriptive name that is the formal code and name as listed on the site

Also, do not show Descriptive names like this Develop and use complex databases BSBADM403A as this is not how it is listed on the site and you will also receive errors.

For the National settings for:

  • Field of Education
  • Nominal Hours
  • VET

We have updated your TEAMS site with the National level settings listed above, where we could. It is your responsibility to confirm that all your module/competency have national settings and if they don’t contact the support staff who can try and assist you but if they were not updated there would be a reason why we couldn’t update them and it means they can only guide you as to where to find the information.
