The Certificate IV Training and Assessment (TAA40104) has been reviewed and the qualification has been updated to reflect the broad requirements of the vocational education and training industry.

The latest Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (TAE40110) qualification assumes the learner is working in training and education, or has a vocational skill at a level that supports training and education in the subject area in which it is intended to teach.

This qualification is designed to provide the essential elements of what is needed by an entry level trainer and assessor in any Vocational Education and Training context.

These elements include skills and knowledge to train the learner to plan, develop, train, assess and evaluate training and assessment.

Achievement of this qualification (or an equivalent) by trainers and assessors is a requirement of the Australian Quality Training Framework Essential Standards for Registration.

All registered training organisations (such as TAFE) and some workplaces, require trainers to hold these competencies in order to work for them.

The Pines Training Centre at Buderim offers the Cert IV in Training and Assessment (TAE40110) in a five day intensive format.

The Pines also provides a recognition process for holders of TAA40104 and a combined upgrade and recognition process for holders of BSZ.
Who should do this course?

  • Those who want to formalise, recognise or achieve new skills in training and assessing
  • Those for whom training and/or assessing is a main part of their work role
  • Those who want a nationally recognised training and assessment qualification
  • Secondary school teachers who wish to teach VET subjects in schools
  • Anyone involved in the employment services, recruitment, and human resources fields
  • Employers/managers wishing to manage the professional development of their staff
  • Life coaches, personal development trainers

 

Overview of the qualification

A total of 10 units of competency are required to complete this qualification: seven core units and three elective units.

One elective unit may be selected from any currently endorsed Training Package or accredited course*.

The units are clustered into the following key areas of learning:

  • Assessment
  • Delivery
  • Design

*Elective units must be relevant to the work outcome, local industry requirements and the qualification level (must be Cert III or above).

In many cases, learners will be able to import an elective unit from a qualification they already hold that is relevant to their industry, and gain Recognition.

Learners who wish to import an elective unit must still complete two of the remaining elective units on offer.

Recognition of Prior Learning

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is the process of gaining competency in a unit or in a qualification, on the basis of your existing skills and knowledge.

You may have gained this knowledge through formal courses, or perhaps through work and life experiences.

These are measured against your chosen course of study and you may be granted credits or exemptions from some parts of your studies.

RPL is an evidentiary process and you will be required to submit a portfolio that may include documents such as:

  • CV or resume
  • Job descriptions
  • Employer references
  • Self assessment of your skills
  • Examples of work you have undertaken

 

Upgrading from the TAA40104

It is important for you to know that upgrade is not essential. You may continue to work as a trainer or assessor in the national training system with your current qualification, as long as you can demonstrate your skills and knowledge are current.

If you hold the TAA40104 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, and providing you can demonstrate current training and assessment experience in a competency based training environment, you may be eligible for credit for the following TAE units based on the nominated TAA units.

Core Units:

TAEASS401A possible credit from TAAASS401C + TAAASS403B

TAEASS402A equivalent to TAAASS402C

TAEASS403A equivalent to TAAASS404B

TAEDEL401A equivalent to TAADEL401B + TAADEL402B

TAEDEL402A equivalent to TAADEL403B + TAADEL404B

TAEDES401A possible credit from TAADES401B + ENV Units

TAEDES402A possible credit from TAADES402B + ENV Units

Elective Units:

TAEDEL404A (new unit, no equivalent)

TAEDEL301A equivalent to TAADEL301C

TAEASS502A possible credit from TAAASS402C

BSBCMM401A Make a presentation (unchanged)

 

Or an imported elective of your choice that meets the suitability criteria.

Because you are able to import an elective unit from a Training Package or accredited course, your transition from TAA40104 to the latest qualification TAE40110 may be straightforward.
