Will I get my certificate on the last day of the course?

No, but it is possible to get your certificate within 1-2 months of finishing the course. This will depend on how quickly you complete the remaining assessment tasks that you haven’t been able to finish during class time.

Do I need to have a job to do this course?

No, you don’t necessarily need to be employed to do Ctrain’s Cert IV TAE course. It does help you complete some of the practical assessments, though, if you are employed by an RTO or a place where people have their Cert IV TAE.

The course assessment includes practical demonstrations. Where do I do these?

Some of the practical assessments are conducted during class time (between 30-50%), depending on the number of class participants in each course. You will be assessed by a qualified trainer/assessor. Once the course is finished you get 6 months’ phone/email support from Ctrain.

How long after the course ends do I have to finish all the assessments?

What support does Ctrain provide once the classroom training is over?

Ctrain offers phone/Skype and email support for 6 months after the last day of the course.
