TAE40116 background

In 2016 a revision was made to the national training packages and the TAE40110 was superseded by the TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment. The two qualifications are not equivalent because the new TAE40116 consists of nine core units plus one elective unit, and the superseded TAE40110 consists of seven core units plus three elective units.  This table summarises the equivalency between the units comprising these two qualifications:

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  • Unit TAEASS401B is superseded by TAEASS401 Plan assessment activities and processes.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  • Unit TAEASS403B is superseded by TAEASS403 Participate in assessment validation.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.
