Make an enquiry

The Certificate IV in Training and Assessment is the minimum requirement to work as a Facilitator/Assessor within the VET (Vocational Education and Training) sector.
Time Education & Training can support individuals who currently hold the TAE40110 to upgrade to the TAE40116 qualification and have current competency in vocational education & training.

The new TAE40116 has two (2) additional core units:
TAELLN411  Address Adult Language, Literacy and Numeracy Skills
TAEASS502  Design and Develop Assessment Tools

Whilst most other units are equivalent between the TAE40110 and the TAE40116, in addition to the new included Core units two other units are not equivalent.  The following units will require additional evidence before a full TAE40116 can be awarded:

TAEASS401 - Plan assessment activities and processes (additional element and performance criteria)  
TAEASS403 - Participate in assessment validation (additional performance criteria)  

It is important to note that this upgrade information applies only to current/recent Trainers and Assessors who hold a full TAE40110.  Holders of skill sets or prior training and assessment qualifications, such as TAA40106  will have additional upgrade requirements. These additional requirements will vary depending on electives completed and recency of experience.  Holders of older or partial qualifications are encouraged to contact us to discuss their specific upgrade requirements.
