Ok, so you have some questions, fair enough, 
let jump right in and get some answers

Class 9b is part of the National Construction Code (NCC) and The Building Code of Australia (BCA) and is the building classification an education provider must operate from if they have a campus premises for their student
In a word, YES! The NCC and BCA relates to building requirements and not thenationality of the occupants so domestic students are equally in need of the safety and protection offered by the BCA as international students are
Class 9b is a building classification so if you teach on line, this is not a requirement In regards to teaching on client premises, Class 9b is “A Place of Public Assembly” So if you are teaching staff at their premises, they are not considered public but staff so Class 9b is not required

However, if you have classrooms as part of your premises and the clients/students come to you, then you need to obtain Class 9
Firstly, just because there is another provider in the building doesn’t mean they are operating with the correct approvals

Secondly, if a provider makes an application for Education Approval and Class 9b certification, it would only be for their tenancy. The rest of the building would remain the current classification so no
Council’s main roll in this process is based on Planning Consent, is Education an activity in this particular area, based on the zoning under the Development Control Plan (DCP) and the Local Environmental Plan (LEP).

Class 9b is part of the National Construction Code (NCC) and The Building Code of Australia (BCA) and is the purview of a Principle Certifying Authority (PCA) so if you speak to a planner from Council, he may well not know what you are talking about, you need to be speaking to a Building Certifier/Surveyor depending on what state or territory you are in
Yes, the NCC and BCA are Federal legislation/codes so they apply throughout Australia
That is because even though the NCC and BCA are Federal Legislation, each State or Territory has their own “Act” that determines how the code is administered in that particular State or Territory. For Example, NSW has the “Environmental Planning and Assessment Act” where both Victoria and Queensland have the “Building Act”
That is because the Council focus on Planning Consent and as part of that process will be happy for you to have the number of students you applied for as long as you comply with the NCC and BCA.

There are a number of key building infrastructure elements such as toilets, fire stairs and air conditioning to name a few that will limit the occupancy numbers of a floor or tenancy unless address as part of the new works to increase the numbers over and above the original limitations
