MY CERT IV UPGRADE

The whole Cert IV upgrade process was clearly communicated & defined. It provided manageable steps to complete at your own pace! All instructions were clear & the communication from Fortress staff was immediate, to the point & helpful. I found the course enjoyable, valuable, efficient... completing it easily & without concern. My course was fully online (except for the validation process) & staff support was exemplary. The validation process facilitator was outstanding. I would therefore recommend Fortress based on my experience with this course!

I am pleased I chose Fortress Learning…

I am pleased I chose Fortress Learning for my TAE upgrade training. From start to finish, everyone was so helpful with every aspect and my trainer Deb provided excellent guidance and feedback throughout. The videos by Emma were very clear and easy to follow to help with each step of the assignments. Can't recommend Fortress highly enough for those requiring professional training in the courses they offer.

Fortress learning provided quality service, resources and training, from the enrolment process with Jonathon who had exceptional Customer service skills to the Trainer Deb Thomas who held my hand through the upgrade process.

Success…

As an older aged student I had doubts at first. But with the help and assistance I received from Fortress Learning was just incredible. 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.

Thank You!!

I’m not a person who takes to technology and computers easily, I never gained an education through high school. Thanks to Deb and the team at Fortress, I was able to get my qualification to start my dream job, training and assessing apprentices. I would like to thank everyone at Fortress for helping and guiding me along the way, I will be forever grateful!

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.

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.

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 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!

Frequently Asked Questions

How Long Does It Take?

The enrolment duration for this course is:

  • 2 months for Option A
  • 3 months for Option B
  • 3 months for Option C
  • 4 months for Option D

Experience tells us that the following three factors affect the time it takes a student:

  1. Experience – if you have experience in training/assessing, then you will likely not need as long as people without experience.
  2. Dedication – if you have a good reason to do the course, and can hold yourself accountable, then you will likely not need as long as people who are less committed.
  3. Other commitments – if you have a busy life with many competing professional and personal demands, then you will likely need longer than those people with fewer demands.

While it differs for different people, we find that successful students usually dedicate 10- 15 hours per week to their studies. That said, some of our students take less time, while others take more. It is up to you.

What Will It Cost Me?

Our minimum course fees for the standard enrolment period are:

  • Upgrade Option A: $400
  • Upgrade Option B: $600
  • Upgrade Option C: $600
  • Upgrade Option D: $800

Speak to our Course Advisors to determine which option is best for you.

How Is The Course Delivered?

This course is delivered online, which gives you flexibility in your study hours and allows you to complete the course at your own pace. After enrolment, you will receive your login credentials and instant access to our learning platform. This is where you will find all your instructions, learning resources and assessments.

We know that the TAE is not easy and that it’s not a matter of “if” but “when” you will need a guiding hand. That’s why you will have unlimited access to your trainer and can schedule phone or video calls when you need support. Our trainers are available 9 am to 5 pm QLD time Monday to Friday.

Our service promises to you:

  • Any assessments you submit will be marked within four business days. That is our service standard guarantee to you.
  • All emails are responded to within 8 business hours.
  • If we miss your call, we’ll call you back within 4 business hours.

If you are not sure why quality support is important you may be interested in our article ‘Why Student Support Matters“.

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.

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 with the Standard 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!

How To Get Certificate IV In Training And Assessment?

The Certificate IV in Training and Assessment is taught by Registered Training Organisations who have been approved by ASQA to deliver the Cert IV TAE.

When you are comparing providers, ensure you check out the RTO’s current registration status on training.gov.au here: https://training.gov.au/Search/SearchOrganisation

Here at Fortress Learning, we specialise only in TAE Training Products, so you can be assured that our Trainers have the knowledge and skills required to deliver the best possible experience for you.

You can access information about any of our TAE Certificate IV or Diploma Qualifications, along with Skill sets and single units, from our website here: https://www.fortresslearning.edu.au/programs/

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 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.

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.
