What You'll Learn

This is the newest version of the skill set that means you can start working as an assessor (without supervision). It's either the first step to working in an RTO, or if you've done the facilitation skill set, it means you can take on the role of assessor and trainer (training only under supervision). Stacking the skill sets is a nice shortcut because you don't have to wait until you complete the full Cert IV in Training and Assessment to start your new career. Bonus!

Watch this short overview video to learn more about what specialised units are included and what opportunities this skill set will give you once you complete it. This is the exciting part!

What Are The Assessment Requirements?

Here is what you need to know about the assessments for this skill set:

For all 3 package options: The validation assessment workshop is included, allowing you to complete the TAEASS413 unit. It runs once a month on a Tuesday from 9am - 4pm in an online Zoom classroom.

NOTE: You will need to have completed all of the learning and preparation modules in your learner portal before you can attend the workshop. You will still need to complete the knowledge questions assessment and submit the evidence and documentation once you have completed the workshops in order to finalise the unit.

How Long Will This Course Take?

The enrolment period for this course is 6 months. This is ample time for the average person  to complete this course who can only study part time around their job and family. All it takes is scheduling regular study time each week and reaching out for help if and when you need it.

Can This Course Be Counted Towards The Full Cert IV?

Yes! If you choose to do the full Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (TAE40122) at some point in the future, the units in this course are a direct credit transfer across so you wouldn't have to repeat them. AND we reduce the cost of your Cert IV course cost for every unit we can tick off via a credit transfer. BONUS!

How Do I Access The Learning Material?

Once your enrolment is finalised, this is when you are set up with a login to your Learner Portal. An email is sent with everything you need to have and know to get started and inside the Learner Portal is a video introduction that will show you how to navigate around it.

Inside the learner portal you'll find all of your units listed in a logical order, with all lessons in PDF's and videos, broken down into smaller chunks with comprehensive assessment guides to make it as easy as possible to know what you need to do to complete them right the first time. And as you complete each item, they are marked as complete so you can easily see where you're up to when you next log in.

What Is Involved In The Enrolment Interview?

You’ll be sent to a booking page just after making your deposit payment, to book your enrolment interview and a confirmation email will be sent to you with the details of everything you need to have prepared for that interview.

The interview can be booked on the same day but there is a minimum of a 4 hour gap from applying to being able to do the enrolment interview, this is so you have time to get prepared.

HEADS UP: You will need your USI (Student Identifier) before you get to your interview.

This is done via Google Meet where you can ask any additional questions and clear up anything you’re not sure of before enrolling. This is also where we both get to make sure you have chosen the right course pathway and support package for what you really need.

During the interview we’ll conduct a "Suitability Assessment". This is a series questions that will help us determine if you can meet the technical, practical and skill requirements needed for you to be able to confidently complete this course online.

The technical requirements are things like having regular computer access as well as knowledge and confidence navigating things like email, logins and websites. The practical questions are to make sure you have access to the human and physical resources you need to complete the assessments in your course.

We will ask additional questions about your goals, your online experience and comfort level in learning online, your learning ability plus your availability to study.This is all to make sure you're in the right course and set up to succeed before enrolling formally. This gives you more confidence that you can absolutely get all the way to graduation.

If the course is found to be unsuitable for you, your deposit (including the enrolment interview fee of $150) will be fully refunded. If you don't show up for your enrolment interview or if you change your mind after the interview within the 7 day cooling off period, the enrolment fee is not refunded.

What Happens If This Course Is Determined As Not Suitable For Me?

If during your Enrolment Interview we discover this course is not suitable for you, we’ll offer other alternative solutions or refund all fees paid, including the $150 deposit.

What If I Need To Take a Break From Studying?

The flexibility of our online approach means that if you need to take a break from studying, we’ve got that covered too.

We offer the option to defer (pause) your studies. Whilst you are deferred, your enrolment is inactive, and we pause your enrolment duration. Then, when you are reactivated from deferment, you pick up exactly where you left off and carry on.

Here is what you need to know about deferring:

  • You can defer a maximum of two times. The first deferment is free. The second deferment has a $45 fee.
  • Payment plans continue on deferment, and your payments must be up to date before we can defer you.
  • You won’t have access to your trainer or learning platform while you’re status is “deferred”.
  • If you have at least 6 weeks remaining in your enrolment, you can defer for up to 3 months. After that, you can defer for twice the amount of time remaining in your enrolment (for example, if you have 1 week left in your enrolment, you can defer for 2 weeks.)

The most important thing is to contact us if your enrolment isn’t working out as you had planned, so that we can offer you the best support options as and when you need them.

Why Choose Fortress?

We know that right now you probably “need” to do this training and you’re looking for fast and easy so it’s relatively painless for you. We get it, so we’ve spent more time on our end making it as straightforward for you as possible, and finding ways to do our part more efficiently so we’re not the bottleneck!

  1. We have one of the fastest marking times in the industry – We know that when you start something like this, you want to get through it as fast as possible and marking times can significantly impact how fast you can do it. You’ll get your assessments back within 4 business days with us (except where the Solo Support Package, which is 4 – 8 business days max), and then the speed with which you get to graduation is mostly up to you.
  2. Our learning material is first-class in clarity and comprehensiveness, and is as close to what you’ll find in real life! We do this so you’re more confident and skilled when you start working as an actual trainer.
  3. Our support and responsiveness are why we have such a high completion rate. We’ll respond to your emails within 8 business hours, and if we miss your call, we’ll call you back within 4 business hours. Our trainers are also known for their compassion, wisdom and ability to get you all the way to graduation.

Don't believe what we say though, check out our reviews on Google and Trustpilot - See what others have said about learning with us!

Do You Have Flexible Payment Options?

We offer flexible payment options for every course.

You can pay in full and upfront, but you can also pay a deposit (which includes the $150 non-refundable enrolment interview fee), and choose a fortnightly or weekly payment plan. When you select "Enrol", you will see the various packages available for your course, and once you select the package you want, you will be presented with the various payment options.

If you want to go back and see another package and their payment plan options, just hit "back".

Can I Get a Refund If I Change My Mind?

Upon Application:

  • If you are found not to be suitable for entry into any of our programs, we will refund all monies paid.
  • If you choose not to continue with the enrolment interview or application, we will refund monies paid, excluding the $150 application fee.

After Enrolment:

  • Fortress has a 7-day cooling-off period.
  • This 7-day cooling-off period starts from the activation of your learner portal.  For example, if your learner portal is activated on March 1st, the 7-day cooling-off period ends on March 8th
  • If you choose to withdraw within the 7 days cooling-off period, then a full refund of fees paid(excluding the application fee of $150) applies.
  • If you choose to withdraw at any time after the 7-day cooling-off period ends, no refund is applicable, and the full balance of course fees will be due.

Please refer to our Refund Policy here for additional information.

Why Is There a Non-Refundable Fee Included In The Deposit?

When you will pay your deposit it includes your $150 non-refundable enrolment interview fee. This covers the cost of the behind-the-scenes work and time taken to prepare and run the interview itself because it is a cost to us. It's also not fair to others who could have booked an earlier time with us when people just don't show up.

We do the enrolment interview to make sure that the course is the right course for you, and that you have all of the resources and the time you will need to complete it successfully (baring any unexpected events that could impact it) BEFORE you actually enrol. We have saved many students money, time and frustration by having this interview and discovering that it's unlikely they will complete it successfully for some reason. We are invested in your success from the start.

If the course isn't suitable for you for whatever reason, you will be refunded the whole amount of your deposit, including your $150 enrolment interview fee. If you simply don't show up, the $150 enrolment interview fee won't be refunded should you choose not to go ahead for other reasons.

If an emergency happens and you can’t let us know you won’t be able to make it for some reason, we’re generous when it matters most so there are circumstances where this enrolment interview fee will also be refunded, but this is only on a case by case basis.

All of our trainers are located in Australia!
All assessments marked within 8 business days!
Progress monitored and we check in if you stall
Certificates sent within 7 business days of all checks being completed

There Are 4 Upgrade Options

The option that's best for you depends on multiple factors, so use the following flow chart to help you determine which option you should look at. If in doubt, our Course Advisors are experts at working this out with you.
Regardless of your choice you'll need to speak to them to book in for your upgrade course option.

Inspiring The Next Generation

I left school in 1980 and I'm not IT savvy so that's been my biggest challenge as well as retaining information. Coming from a hands on workplace this has definitely been outside my comfort zone and been a great introduction for what I'm about to embark on. The Fortress teams support has been outstanding and enabled me to fullfill a life time dream of passing on my wealth of knowledge experience and make a positive change so as to equip the new generation with the tools and prepare them for the up and coming challenges that lay ahead of them, thanks Fortress.

5 star service from day 1!

5 star service from day 1!! I had previously been enrolled with another RTO but was having difficulties with their online course and a friend recommended I contact Fortress Learning and there was no turning back. The customer service was faultless, very prompt replies to my initial enquiry and I was able to book in a call with my trainer Deb at short notice to answer my questions before I enrolled in a TAE course I needed to complete. The online modules were easy to follow and the assessments were outlined clearly as to what was expected and there were templates available as a guide if needed. Deb went above and beyond to assist me throughout my training and was very professional in her manner. Debs wealth of knowledge in the VET sector, in particular in health was extremely valuable and I can’t thank her enough for her support. I would not hesitate to recommend Fortress Learning to anyone looking to enrol in online training and will certainly be back in the future for any training needs.

I highly recommend Fortress Learning

I highly recommend Fortress Learning if you are thinking of starting a course or gaining a new qualification. The staff and trainers are thorough, professional, and their attention to detail is excellent. The online portal system is simple to navigate, and the course notes and videos are clear, concise and easy to follow. I found the trainers and assessors to be readily available, prompt in their replies, and in some instances willing to go above and beyond, especially in my case where a deadline was imminent. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Fortress Learning.

I had times where life got in the way and of course self doubt that I could achieve the completion of my chosen course. I would highly, highly recommend Fortress for anyone. Huge thanks to Deb.T for your constant support and believing in me that I could achieve this. Thank you all so much.

Master-class in Online Learning

Fortress Learning furnishes their learners with ample materials and support to facilitate successful outcomes. Using the Accelerate platform is straightforward and provides an excellent visualisation of success in real time. Personally, every request I made was answered promptly and considerately. The team of trainers, assessors and support staff were exceedingly generous with their feedback and time- at every turn I knew help was only a phone call away. I further praise Jane and Maniya for providing small goals and targeted feedback that ultimately led to my qualification. Lastly, having undertaken online learning previously, I would not hesitate to say that Fortress Learning has mastered internet based training and have enlightened me as to how quality outcomes can be achieved via correspondence.

A Brighter Future With Fortress

According to the NCVER  in their Australian vocational education and training statistics VET student outcomes report for 2022, the national average statistic for students who said that they "experienced improved employment status after completing their VET training", was 65%.

Compare this to the students who did their training with Fortress Learning, and a whopping 83.3% of our students said that they received an improved employment status after completing their studies. That's an increase of over 27% compared to the National Average!

Not All Cert IV TAE Trainings Are Created Equally!

Of course, you can pay less money for your training, but just be aware that it's highly unlikely that you will get everything that you need... Plain and simple.

In order to give you the level of training AND support that you'll need to succeed, there's no way that anyone can afford to do it at such low prices (unless they intend to hit you with an up-sell later).

We all wish that the saying "you get what you pay for" wasn't real, but there's a reason why we all still say it!

You Graduating Is Our No.1 Goal!

This course can be challenging and many of you are doing it because you “have to”, we get it, so we have gone to great lengths to make the learning material as engaging as possible, we also monitor your progress and reach out if we see you’ve stalled so we can support you to keep going. We are there every step of the way!
