Why update to the TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment?

 

1. Compliance.  The recent amendment to the Standards for RTOs 2015 has changed the minimum qualifications required of trainers and assessors within the vocational education and training sector:

2. Competitive advantage!  Gain a competitive advantage by possessing the most current training and assessment qualification. 

3. Prepare!  Remember when the TAA40104 was replaced by the TAE40110 back in 2010?  It wasn’t long before employers became reluctant to accept trainers with the superseded qualification.  Be prepared for the inevitable!

4. Professionalism!  Holding the most current TAE40116 qualification shows your commitment to ongoing professional development and ensures you remain at the forefront of the industry.

FAQs

1. What's the difference between the TAE40110 and the TAE40116?  The new TAE40116 consists of nine core units plus one elective unit.  The superseded TAE40110 consists of seven core units plus three elective units.

In summary:

  • Unit TAEASS502 Design and develop assessment tools and TAELLN411 Address adult language, literacy and numeracy skills have been added as new core (mandatory) units.
  • Unit TAEASS401B is superseded by TAEASS401 Plan assessment activities and processes. These units are not equivalent, and the new unit requires evidence of having planned and organised five assessments including two RPL assessments.
  • Unit TAEASS403B is superseded by TAEASS403 Participate in assessment validation. These units are not equivalent, and the new unit requires participation in three validation sessions.

2. Is it compulsory to update to the TAE40116?  No, it is not compulsory to update to the TAE40116. The TAE40110 by itself is still a valid qualification to work as a trainer and assessor until 2019. However, by updating to the latest qualification you will be setting yourself apart from your peers, and show a commitment to continual professional development that is valued so highly in training and assessment roles.  Also, you may recall when the TAA40104 was replaced by the TAE40110 back in 2010.  It wasn’t long before employers became reluctant to accept trainers with the superseded qualification.  Be prepared for the inevitable!

3. How long do I have to update to the TAE40116 once enrolled?  Once we have confirmed your eligibility, you have 12 months from the enrolment date to complete the update process.
