Course delivery options explained:

Face-to-face Workshops:

Face-to-face Workshops are extremely popular and delivered in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane for a range of units. This pathway is our most supported option providing students with the opportunity to tackle practical assessment tasks within a traditional classroom environment with their peers for the units they need or want extra support to complete.

Students who attend face-to-face Workshops also have access to self-paced unit theory lessons (described below). Essentially our students who attend Workshops get access to the best features that face-to-face and online learning have to offer!

Face-to-face workshops are available for Delivery and Compliance and Development units included as part of the TAE40122 Certificate IV in Training & Assessment course via public classes. Custom Workshops can be arranged for any of the TAE courses we have on offer for corporate groups of eight or more.

If you are looking for support on your TAE journey and crave in-person learning, then these Workshops are for you.

iClass+ Workshops:

iClass+ Workshops are delivered via the interactive Adobe Connect platform by an experienced trainer. During these sessions, students will actively participate in an online classroom environment with other students and will have the opportunity to complete practical assessment tasks in the online iClass+ setting.

iClasses+ are as close as a student can get to a face-to-face learning experience without having to leave the comfort or security of home.

Please note: Students who are completing the TAE40122 Certificate IV in Training & Assessment are unable to complete unit TAEDEL411 Facilitate vocational training via iClass+ Workshops due to the face-to-face requirements of the unit.

Standard or Distance+ Courses:

Standard or Distance+ courses offer the ultimate in flexibility for students who are self-motivated and eager to work through the course materials at their own pace.

Students undertaking a standard or Distance+ course access their learning materials electronically, interact with their instructors and assessors via telephone or email, and submit their completed assessments via the student Learner Portal.

All learning and assessment activities are completed in the student’s own time with the exception of unit BSBINS303 Use knowledge management systems and TAEASS413 Participate in assessment validation (if applicable).

If you are looking for complete flexibility and are comfortable with independent learning, this pathway is for you. This pathway is also the most competitive price-wise.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL):

Recognition of Prior Learning is an assessment only process for individuals who already possess all the training and assessment skills, experience, and knowledge for their desired qualification. Certain eligibility requirements are needed to complete a course via RPL, and each student is required to complete and submit a free RPL eligibility application kit prior to enrolment, available on our Recognition of Prior Learning page.

Corporate Training:

Corporate training solutions are available for all our TAE courses and can be customised to suit any companies needs. Corporate training can be delivered face-to-face or via one of our fantastic online options.

We are the preferred supplier to several large and small Australian corporations and are proud of the many return clients that we have assisted over the years. Customised corporate training solutions are available for groups of eight or more.

Study sessions:

Live trainer-led weekly or fortnightly study sessions are included in all enrolments. Students can attend as many sessions as they like throughout the duration of their course where they are able to have any questions about the course answered.

Students are encouraged to attend whether they have questions or not as a range of topics are usually covered during a session prompting students to gain a great understanding of concepts included in their course.


One-on-one tutorials are available to all students at a fee per hour. Tutorials are a great way to get one-on-one coaching for any units included within a course from one of our expert TAE trainers.

Tutorials can be used to cover a range of topics including but not limited to questions about assessment tasks, training of concepts or observations of tasks that only require one additional attendee.

Credit Transfer:

Credit transfers are available for students who already hold a unit within a qualification or Statement of Attainment in a currently endorsed training package. Students may apply to credit transfer a unit rather than completing the unit again. Any student who wished to credit transfer a unit must provide a copy of their transcript to ensure the unit meets current standards and is academically equivalent.
