TAE10 Certificate IV requirements

4.2  21/DEC/2011

User guide for the TAE40110 certificate IV qualification. From 16 June 2012, this qualification is mandatory for all trainers and assessors involved in the delivery of nationally recognised training in Australia.

NOTE:

The National Skills Standards Council (NSSC) policy on the training and assessment competencies to be held by trainers and assessors under the AQTF Standard 1.4(a) / VQF SNR4.4/14.5, as agreed by the NSSC and published in its December 2011 communiqué is reprinted below.

Trainers must hold the TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment from the TAE10 Training and Assessment Training Package as a minimum qualification or be able to demonstrate equivalence of competencies.

PACI comment: The ability to satisfy the test of 'equivalent competencies' is in practice very difficult as the system is geared toward all trainers possessing the full TAE40110 cert IV qualification. The evidence burden, time, cost and risks of trying to demonstrate 'equivalence' outweighs the convenience of simply obtaining the TAE qualification. It should be noted that a government auditor will scrutinise any such application for 'equivalence' and if it is declined - this could leave the applicant in default of the AQTF standards and subject to penalty action.

Refer to pages 12-14 of the user guide for further information.
