Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (TAA40104)

Training and Assessment Like many Australians, you may already be working in a training capacity, or perhaps you are considering a career as a trainer? The wonderful thing about working as a trainer in Australia is that you are able to back up your working experience in whatever industry that you are in with vocational qualifications such as the Cert IV in TAA, potentially opening up many new career opporuntunties that were perhaps previously unavailable before being qualified.

In my own training organisation, Inspire Education (www.inspireeducation.net.au) the primary reasons people cite for wanting to do their Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (TAA) are:

1. A new role has become available that requires them to have their Cert IV in TAA

2. Their employer requires that that attend and/or complete a TAA course for their present role, or for a new role that they will be undertaking

3. A desire to teach at an Australian TAFE (The Certificate IV in Training and Assessment is ESSENTIAL for this) 4. They wish to change from their current role to work as a trainer

5. They want start their own registerd training organisation (RTO)

The primary source of the knowledge and skills (and in many cases a requirement of the job!) is of course the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (TAA40104). This is Australia’s leading, nationally accredited and recognised ‘train the trainer’ qualification and is actually a requirement if any trainer wishes to train within an RTO or TAFE environment.

For your convenience, I have also included the course outline and basic information below in case you were thinking of undertaking the course yourself:
