Use of the Group Training Organisations logo
The Group Training (GT) logo is a certified trademark and is the distinguishable mark of quality for promoting and certifying Group Training Organisations (GTOs) who have met the National Standards for Group Training Organisations.

Who can use the GT logo?
The GT logo can be used only by GTOs who have met the National Standards for Group Training Organisations and been officially registered by a State or Territory training authority (STA).

GTOs eligible to use the GT logo will be listed on this national register

It is an offence against trademark regulations for an unrecognised or de-registered GTO to use the logo.

Continued use of the logo requires a successful audit to be conducted by STAs against the standards every three years. De-registration of a GTO requires immediate cessation of the use of the logo.

When can you use the GT logo?
A GTO may only display the GT logo once it has received official notification from the STA of its recognition of meeting the requirements of the National Standards for Group Training Organisations.

Use of the Logo
A GTO is able to use the GT logo on documentation (including letterheads and brochures) and advertising material.

The GT logo should appear as a secondary logo on all material as the organisation's logo must be the primary source of advertisement.

Reproduction of the Logo
GTOs can obtain a copy of the GT logo from their registering State and Territory training authority.

The complete GT logo is shown below and may be varied in size. However, the proportions of the image must remain accurate. Under no circumstances is the image to be produced in a mirror image or rotated.

The GT logo remains the property of the Department of Industry, Innovation, Climate Change, Science, Research and Tertiary Education and can only be used in compliance with these certification rules and National Standards.
