Vocational Education Employer Self Service
What is Vocational Education Employer Self Service (VEESS)?
VEESS is an online self-service system developed by RMIT that gives the employer direct access to employees’ training records. VEESS allows the employer to do the following for each apprentice and trainee:
- View each day’s attendance and future attendance schedule

- Review and confirm competence at course level

- Review and approve training plan (in development).

- All the information that the employer is already familiar with, in a more convenient online format.
