Maintaining Your Registration

Save as PDF 

All registered teachers are responsible for maintaining their registration. A registration cycle is typically five years. All teachers are at different stages of their five-year registration cycle, so each person’s options to secure their registration for next year are different.

Many teachers need to pay to continue their registration into the following year. You can make a payment at any time in your TRB Online account before your current registration expires.

Teachers who are at the end of their five-year registration cycle must renew their registration or reapply, depending on the category/type of registration they hold.

Renewals and reapplications are available on TRB Online from 1 September each year.

For more information, please see our Renewal of Registration Policy.

To renew full or SpVET registration, you must meet the requirements for teaching service/employment or professional development. You do not need to meet both requirements.

Teaching service/employment as a teacher
The Board must confirm your teaching service during your last cycle of registration (the last five years). This employment information should be updated in your TRB Online account.

You have met this requirement if you have taught for the equivalent of 120 full-time days over the last five years.

Professional development
The Board needs to confirm you have participated in professional development during your last registration cycle. At this stage, no set number of hours is required, just engagement in relevant professional development activities. Relevant activities contribute to a teacher’s professional competence, directly or indirectly enhancing teaching and learning. You can list one or two key activities in TRB Online. You must provide evidence of your participation if audited by the Board.

You have met this requirement of you have engaged in relevant professional development in the last five years.

Please note
Changes to the requirement for registration to teach in the VET sector in Tasmania are effective from 1 July 2022. 

To renew your registration, log in to TRB Online and submit a renewal application. You must demonstrate your ongoing professional competence, continued good character, and fitness to teach. Renewals open on 1 September each year.

For more information, please see our fact sheet on renewing your registration.

Provisional registration cannot be renewed. Instead, you must reapply for provisional teacher registration. All teachers are expected to progress to full registration within their first registration cycle (within five years of becoming a provisionally registered teacher).

To reapply for registration, log in to TRB Online and complete the application process. You must meet the criteria for provisional registration including continued good character and fitness to teach.

Renewals and reapplications incur an application fee of $56 and an annual registration fee of $105.

  • 1 year = $161 (application fee + annual registration fee)
  • 2 years = $266 (application fee + 2 x annual registration fee)
  • 3 years = $371 (application fee + 3 x annual registration fee)
  • 4 years = $476 (application fee + 4 x annual registration fee)
  • 5 years = $581 (application fee + 5 x annual registration fee)
