Cert IV in Training and Assessment Fast Track: Your 101 on Intensive Courses

Cert IV in Training and Assessment Fast Track: Your 101 on Intensive Courses

The TAE40116 is the national standard for all trainers in Australia, and holding this qualification can jumpstart your career if you want to get into training.

If your ideal role requires you to be fully qualified, then this is the qualification you most likely need to complete. This course has a duration of 26 weeks on average based on myskills, but there are ways to fast track your Cert IV TAE depending on your experience.

How to Fast Track Your Cert IV TAE

There are many ways to ‘fast track’ your Certificate IV in Training and Assessment course:

1. If you currently hold the TAE40110, then consider upgrading to TAE40116

By upgrading, you will no longer need to study everything from scratch and will skip most of the units. This allows you to gain your qualification sooner because you only need to study the new units plus some gap training.

You can go about this upgrade via the following fast track delivery options:

Self-Paced Online learning: Study all gap training and the new course units wherever you are around Australia at your own pace.
You will have up to 3 months to complete all assessments.

Face to Face Workshop: This is a great way to move through your course faster and with benefit of a learning session in the classroom with full trainer support. Consists of a 3-day workshop. The 3-day intensive Cert IV Training and Assessment workshop will cover gap training for the new/updated assessment units.

2. If you have significant experience in vocational training, you can apply for RPL to lessen the number of units you need to study

You just need to provide evidence of competency for the units offered within the qualification. Here are the pieces of evidence you may use:

● Formal and informal qualifications such as qualifications, certificates, statements of results, statements of attainment or course transcripts.
● Resume, job description or work history.
● References from paid or unpaid work experience
● Samples of your work, such as publications, reports or articles
● References and letters from your clients or employers.

Week 3: Maximise your time by attending three (3) 5-day online workshops. In addition to the activities covered in the 2-week workshop, you will also go through the critical tasks and projects in the third subject (Assessment Cluster) under your trainer’s assistance and direction.
