How Difficult Is A Certificate IV?

The Australian Qualification Framework (AQF) is like a big rule book that explains what you need to learn at different school levels, all the way up to university and beyond. For the Certificate IV, it's like being on level 4 out of 10. It's not the easiest level, but it's designed to give you a solid challenge.

We're all about keeping it real with you: getting your Certificate IV in Training and Assessment is going to be a bit of a journey. It's packed with new words, ideas, and skills that you'll need to master. But hey, if you've ever taught someone something (even just showing a friend how to do something cool), you've got a head start. Your experience will make this adventure a bit easier and less scary.

Just a heads up, this certificate will take a good chunk of your time. But think of it as investing in your superhero training powers!

We've also put together a blog called "The Then Painful Truths about the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment." It's worth a read if you want to dive deeper. Check it out:


Is the Diploma a higher Qualification Than the Cert IV And Would It Be a Better Option to Start With?

In the world of Australian education, yes, it is! According to the Australian Qualification Framework (AQF), Diplomas are at level 5, which means they're one step up from a Certificate IV.

Thinking about jumping straight into a Diploma? Hold up a sec. The TAE50116 Diploma of Vocational Education and Training and the TAE50216 Diploma of Training, Design and Development (which have now passed the baton to the TAE50122 Diploma) ask for a lot of proof that you know your stuff. We're talking about designing courses, teaching them, and checking how well your students are doing, plus leading other trainers in how to be awesome at their jobs. If you don't have that, you'll find the diploma journey a bit like climbing Mount Everest with zero conditioning training.

So, having the TAE40122 Certificate IV in your toolkit and a decent amount of experience working for a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) will really help you cross the finish line after climbing the TAE qualification mountain.
