It is a requirement that trainers and assessors delivering nationally recognised training in Australia hold this qualification (or relevant skill sets from the units in the qualification) under the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015.

The course uses an online learning approach based on online learning, videos, live webinars, learning activities, reading, personal research, and workplace learningand a placement where participants are provided with the opportunity to practice and refine their skills.

A variety of options are offered for individuals wishing to undertake this course.
• A supported online program consisting of online learning content, videos, forums and weekly live tutorials. Tutorials go for 1.5 hours each week.
Participants must commit to 21.5 hours per week of reading and homework. Intakes every month.
• An upgrade program for those holding the previous TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment which includes partial credit, partial RPL and some online learning (depending on previous units completed and recent work experience).
• For organisations wishing to deliver this qualification onsite for groups of 12 or more staff, we can tailor a program to suit your needs. Talk to us about your needs.

You must have access to a workplace or practice environment where you can practice your skills and complete activities for your assessment tasks, including delivering training to individuals and groups, and conducting workplace assessment.
