Experience

A central focus of TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment is the connection with the candidate's area of vocational competence. While no vocational experience is technically required for entry into this course, a trainer and/or assessor is required to have technical skills or vocational competence in the area in which they train and assess. If you would like to train and assess competency, we highly recommend that you have a minimum of three (3) years vocational experience and the appropriate qualifications in the area in which you would like to deliver training and assess competency.

Vocational competence is defined as broad industry knowledge and experience, usually combined with a relevant industry qualification. A person who has vocational competency will be familiar with the content of the vocation and will have relevant current experience in the industry. Vocational competency must be considered on an industry-by-industry basis and with reference to any guidance provided in the relevant Training Package or Accredited Course.

If you haven't successfully completed English at Year 12 level, you can demonstrate equivalency through one of the following:

  • Successful completion of a Nationally Recognised Training qualification at Certificate III level or higher; or

  • Training with a group of people
  • Training individuals in the workplace

  • Conducting training needs analysis
  • Facilitating E-learning

A Practice Environment may include a Registered Training Organisation (RTO), workplace or volunteer organisation.
