TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment

The TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment was superseded in 2016 by the TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment. While RTOs may continue to train the older qualification until October 2017 we have decided it is in the best interests of our students to not enrol any new people into the qualification. The information below regarding the Certificate IV in Training and assessment is therefore provided here as a historical reference.  

This is a nationally recognised qualification and perfect for someone who is looking to conduct training in the Australian Vocational Education Sector. The TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment will teach you the skills and knowledge to work as a trainer and/or assessor for TAFE Institutes, private Registered Training Organisations, community colleges, group training companies and workplaces. This course covers a vast array of skills, practices and tools used to develop, conduct and review training in the regulatory environment. This course is especially designed for those who have broad knowledge and experience in your industry and are looking to train others in your vocational skills.
