TAE 40116 is a nationally recognised certificate IV qualification for people who wish to be trainers and/or assessors in the workplace. Most employers who advertise for trainers now insist on TAE40116 as the minimum qualification.
The TAE40116 course consists of 10 units of competency and, depending on where you do the course, can be completed within 3-6 months, with typically a minimum of 10-12 days face-to-face training.
The TAE40116 course covers all facets of training and assessment in the workplace including units such as ‘Design and develop learning programs’ ‘Plan, organise and deliver group-based learning’ and ‘Plan assessment activities and processes’.
You will be required to demonstrate vocational competence in at least one area and you will be asked to provide evidence of this competence prior to being accepted into the course.
What TAE40116 can do for you
TAE40116 opens the door to the world of vocational training. You can teach in your area of expertise at TAFE, work for a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) or set up your own training business. TAE40116 can also help you change roles within your company and continue to use your experience and knowledge training others. TAE40116 gives you greater flexibility in your working life and allows you to remain an active member of the workforce for much longer than you or your employer may have envisaged.
What further study options are available after TAE40116?
Once you have a few years of training and assessing experience under you belt you may consider building on your expertise by undertaking further study at the Diploma or advanced Diploma level. There are many qualifications available which can lead you into training management roles, perhaps working in your own RTO or supervising other trainers and assessors at a TAFE college.
TAE40116 is not for everyone. It takes a certain type of individual to become a good trainer. You should have a passion for your area of expertise and a flair for communicating ideas and concepts to others. You need to be patient, resilient and above all, have a true desire to help people fulfil their potential. Above all, the Certificate IV in training and assessment might be the gateway to a future you have only dreamt about.
