Early in 1999, Ray Earl established Skynet Corporation Pty. Ltd. as an Information Technology Support Company. As the business grew it was decided to diversify into the area of
training & assessment, business consultation, facilitation and quality management system development. Skynet Education was created and a platform for the delivery and development of quality
training and service delivery in a flexible manner was born.
Working with a dedicated group of trainers, facilitators and business consultants, Ray has developed a committed quality training company, with an established client base, and an ever-expanding range
of quality training products and service consultation. The primary goal is to provide innovative learning and quality training products to help clients and individuals meet their goals.
Ray is an avid writer and has written a number of articles on training and assessment, eBooks and management consulting. In addition, Ray began developing policies, procedures and
associated documentation aligned to AQTF for his own previous RTO - his RTO always passed audits. A few RTOs asked to use his documentation - at this point Ray realised there was a potential
market for his quality product. He went on to develop several iterations of AQTF through to AQTF Essential Conditions and Standards for Initial/Continuing Registration - How To Meet The
Standards CD. The product range increased to include: The VRQA Guidelines - How To Meet Them CD and CRICOS materials for International Colleges. His latest project was the development of the VET
Quality Framework Quality Management System which will include policies, procedures and forms in line with the VQF including legislative instruments. Ray also developed and facilitated, the VET
Quality Framework - Legislative Instruments and Risk Management Brief which he delivered during August and September 2011 to more than 300 RTOs all over Australia. He also
facilitates the workshop titled: Auditing at the Coal Face, throughout Australia.
