Introduction to Bluegem

Bluegem is a holistic Student Management System (SMS) designed for training and education  providers. Whether you’re a Private Registered Training Organisation (RTO) needing to comply with the latest AVETMISS 7.0 and Standards for Registered Training Organisation SRTO, a CRICOS or VET-FEE Help Provider, a government or corporate enterprise needing to train and accredit your people, or a community and recreational training and education provider who is not an RTO, Bluegem probably has an out-of-the-box solution that’s right for you. If we don’t have exactly the right edition, then you’re sure to find the specific features you need as configurable add-ons. Beyond that, who could be better placed to customise a solution to your precise needs than the people who invented it.

TMS and SMS and LMS?        Really?

Yes, Really!

The Bluegem Training Management System includes a fully integrated Student Management System (SMS) and a Learning Management System (LMS).

This means the Bluegem TMS can manage all phases of your training business while fully integrating your face-to-face, online and blended learning environments. It also includes financial reporting, system integration, resource management, document management as well as student management and compliance to all VET sector standards and guidelines.


What do we mean by Editions?

In the 10 years that we’ve been building and supporting software for the training and education industry, we’ve learned that training organisations fit roughly into 6 groups. Each Bluegem edition includes the key features required by each group. Go to Editions and Add-Ons for details.

  • Privately Owned Training Organisations
  • Publicly Owned TAFEs and Colleges
  • Corporate and Government Enterprises in-house L&D
  • CRICOS Providers for International Students
  • VET FEE Help Providers – offer government backed student loans
  • Community and Adult Education or Recreational providers


As you would expect there are many providers who fit in more than one group. That’s why we offer Add-Ons, configuration options and where appropriate custom modules. That way we ensure that Bluegem can exactly cater to your specific organisation needs.
