How to go about using electronic signatures effectively

Using electronic signatures has been a 'hot button' topic for a decade now in the VET sector.

Join masters qualified VET expert and auditor Phill Bevan in this event replay exploring some of the good and 'not so good' practices in the use of electronic signatures. Explore the requirements of Electronic Transactions Acts across Australian jurisdictions with key terms and definitions affecting electronic signature use.

Discuss what you can and can't do with electronic signatures, and importantly how to implement processes to meet minimum requirements for use. We'll also look at government subsidy contract guidelines for electronic signature use, some good and poor examples in practice, and discuss tech solutions that you might consider to efficiently implement electronic records.


vetr's policy position on Electronic Signature requirements is also provided to all participants for your use.
