The short answer is yes!
ASQA’s Standards for RTO’s Clause 1.13 – 1.16 require that, from July of 2019, all Trainers/Assessors possess either:
- TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training & Assessment, which includes TAELLN411 and TAEASS502, OR
- TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training & Assessment, plus TAELLN411 and TAEASS502, or their equivalent predecessors.
- You can also hold a TAE Diploma, or higher-level adult education qualification.
I have the Cert IV TAE40110 – what will I have to do to upgrade?
There are a number of different pathways that you can take. Take a look at the flowchart below to see which TAE40116 Cert IV TAE Upgrade option best suits your circumstances:
What is involved in upgrading to the new TAE40116?
Unlike previous Certificate IV in Training & Assessment qualifications, the latest TAE40116 requires people entering the program to be able to:
- Demonstrate vocational competency in their proposed teaching and assessing area. Vocational competency is defined as broad industry knowledge and experience, and may include, but is not limited to, holding a relevant unit of competency or qualification.
How do I do that?
For most people, it will simply be a matter of providing a copy of some other qualification, skill set, or statement of attainment. If you do not possess another qualification, then we would require you to provide a CV that shows your broad industry knowledge and experience, combined with a Position Description and Third Party Report from someone who can attest to your experience.
I’m ready… Which Upgrade should I choose?
What Evidence will I have to provide for my Upgrade?
Depending on the Upgrade pathway that best suits your needs, you may or not need to complete the TAEASS502 and TAELLN411 units.
Because TAEASS401 and TAEASS403 are not equivalent to the ones in the old TAE40110 Cert IV, there is some additional evidence that will be needed for these units as well. This is shown below.
