Upgrade your TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, to the current TAE40116


The TAE Training Package was updated in April 2016, with the core units ‘Design and develop assessment tools’ and ‘Address adult language, literacy and numeracy (LLN) skills’ being added to the TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.

The upgrade also includes TAEASS401 & TAEASS403 gap assessment (mandatory component).

OPTION 1. Gap-only assessment of TAEASS401/403                   $300

If you already have the TAEASS502 and TAELLN411 (or TAELLN401) units, then this is the option for you. This simply requires you to complete a simple knowledge assessment with questions like:

“List the four rules of evidence and explain how you apply them in  assessment validation?” – And provide completed templates to demonstrate an assessment plan, validation and assessment instrument development (these are provided for you).

OPTION 2. Either TAEASS502 OR TAELLN411 (plus option 1)     $600

Select this option if you need either the TAEASS502 OR the TAELLN411 (or TAELLN401) unit. By selecting this option, you will receive the gap assessment from option 1., plus the full learning and assessment pathway for whichever unit you still need. If you need both, then select option 3.

OPTION 3. TAEASS502 & TAELLN411 (plus option 1)                  $900

Select this option if you need all components of the standard upgrade. This includes TAEASS502, TAELLN411 (or TAELLN401) and the gap assessment from option 1.

Those entering this program must be able to demonstrate vocational competency in their proposed teaching and assessing area. Vocational competency is defined as broad industry knowledge and experience, and may include, but is not limited to, holding a relevant unit of competency or qualification.
