Frequently Asked Questions for TAE40116 Certificate Holders

If I hold the TAE40116, do I need to upgrade? 

The short answer is no.  The TAE40116 is deemed equivalent to the TAE40122, so therefore you can keep doing whatever the TAE40116 allowed you to do, despite it being superseded. 

What does equivalent mean? 

Equivalent means that someone who holds the TAE40116 will be able to do the same things as someone who holds the TAE40122. 

Should I upgrade? 

This is entirely up to you.  Do you want the most recent version of the qualification?  Many people will have ridden the upgrade journey (BSZ40198 to TAE40104 to TAE40110 to TAE40116). 

Previously the ‘old’ qualification was not equivalent to the replacement.  However, the TAE40122 is deemed equivalent to the TAE40116, so there is no need to upgrade (at this stage). 

What is the difference between the TAE40122 and the TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment? 

TAE40116 consisted of 9 core + 1 elective unit. 

TAE40122 consists of 6 core + 6 electives. 

What do I do if I want the TAE40122? 

ASC T&D is working to be prepared to deliver the TAE40122 by mid-2023. 

Although the qualifications (TAE40116 and TAE40122) are deemed equivalent, the number and contents of the units are considerably different. 

A number of units in the TAE40122 were not available for the TAE40116.  Given that the TAE40122 has six electives, ASC T&D have taken the opportunity to include a range of new units. 

We believe that our choice of electives will give students the skills and knowledge to work effectively in the multitude of training and assessing roles in the VET sector.

  • Designing and contextualising learning programs
  • Assessing learner needs and performance

Learners will have the opportunity to practise and develop their training and assessment skills in a supportive environment. They will engage in two-way feedback with facilitators and other learners to maximise the learning experience to ensure that participants get the most out of their Certificate IV in Training and Assessment qualification.

Due to the practical nature of the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment course, employers and employees alike are sure to see significant professional benefits as a result of attending this course.

Entry Requirements / Prerequisites

To enrol in this course, you must be able to demonstrate vocational competency in your proposed teaching and assessing area. Vocational competency is defined as broad industry knowledge and experience. You may hold a relevant qualification or have worked in the industry sector. Please contact us for clarification if you are unsure. This qualification requires the learner to read, interpret and produce complex documents.

Job Roles

This qualification is designed for enterprise trainers/assessors, registered training organisation (RTO) trainers/assessors, training advisers or training needs analysts and vocational education teachers.

Assessment Requirements

Participants will be required to undertake similar to the following tasks prior to achievement of the qualification:

  1. Planning and organising the assessment process
  2. Assessing candidates against endorsed or an accredited unit of competency according to the organisation’s assessment processes and practices
  3. Designing, developing and reviewing learning programs
  4. Facilitating group-based learning by preparing and delivering training sessions to groups of individuals

All students will have the support of a facilitator who can also mentor participants throughout their qualification. The facilitator will support the student throughout the learning process and ensure that participants have received the appropriate amount of training in each skill and knowledge area and can practice and apply the skills and knowledge requirements of each unit of competency.

Each participant will have the opportunity to fully acquire and absorb the required knowledge, and develop skills over time prior to being assessed. To effectively attain the required knowledge and skills of each unit of competency, each participant may be required to participate in class workshops, conduct their own research and complete review activities.
