Vocational Education and Training is a profession, not just a job.
It has prime responsibilities for the education of existing and future generations of workers. As a profession we play a key part in maintaining the productivity and international competitiveness of our great nation. Therefore, when you choose an RTO to train you as a professional, look for those who are committed to their own professionalism - and yours!
If you are serious about your profession, so are we!
Because we teach what we practice every day, you are assured of training value that is not tied to 'lowest price-lowest common denominator'.
We also offer the full range of electives, so that you can customise your course for your job role, whether that is a workplace trainer, an RTO trainer or have responsibilities for training record management and marketing.
Don't Hold Back!
The revised Standards for Registered Training Organisation, 2015 as amended in 2017 have provided an option for those who hold TAE40110 to include two units as add ons to meet the standards before April 2019.
If you already hold TAELLN401A or TAELLN411 you have met the first of the requirements.
If you already hold TAEASS502B or TAEASS502 you have met the second unit requirements
If you already have the TAE40110 but do not hold one or both of the required units, you can choose to undertake them as Statements of Attainment, and we can provide this through an enrolment into a TAE50216 if you want TAEASS502. TAELLN411 is already on scope as a stand-alone skills set.

It sounds complicated but really is not. We can work out the best option for you.
If you have been a trainer and assessor for some time, then a smart thing to do would be to enrol in a Diploma. A diploma is also a mandatory qualification if you want to be a trainer and assessor in TAE. If you have a Diploma, you do not necessarily need to upgrade to TAE40116, although some employers will ask for this.
Therefore, if you are really looking for an 'upgrade' and not an 'update', the Diploma is the smart way to go!
We are approved to deliver the TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.
If you hold TAE40110 and want to upgrade to the TAE40116:

Entry into the TAE Qualifications:
The expected durations for attaining courses have been set by the Australian Qualifications Framework at the following:
- Certificate IV: 6 months
- Diploma: 1 year
This time may be shortened if you have prior learning, credit transfers, or workplace experience in a related role. Before you enrol, we will discuss your current skills and knowledge and determine an appropriate amount of training for you.
All entrants into TAE qualifications must complete this pre-enrolment questionnaire. This will help us establish the appropriate amount of training you need and whether you can offer RPL evidence that will shorten your time frame for completing the course.
Developed by professional instructional designers.
Taught by highly experienced VET practitioners!

You can take the Diplomas individually or as a combined program.
We have a combined TAE50216/TAE50211 program that will not only give you the most essential skills for senior trainers and assessors but also more bang for your buck:
So, whether you are after RPL, RPL with Gap Training or a full Interactive distance you can get both Diplomas in one package.
You can also choose different electives and a range of stand-alone units is available.
You can also choose individual units as Professional Development to upskill.

Going beyond TAELLN411

Live beyond the Black Stump and there are no local providers?
Hate the thought of slogging through an online course with limited access to a trainer?
We have produced the Diploma of Training Design and Development program as an interactive e-learning course available on CD or USB so you never have to worry about bandwidth issues.
We mentor you through Skype, emails or in webinars so that you have access to your trainer and assessor at all times during working hours (and sometimes afterwards by appointment).
RPL applications in TAE qualifications
We do not accept applications from candidates who use a third party to put together their application.
There is a sound reason for this.
Firstly, we use the quality of the application to judge whether the applicant does have the ability to unpack a training package and correctly interpret the criteria to select evidence that is valid, sufficient, authentic and current. This is the foundation of everything we do as VET professionals.
If you feel you are unable to complete an RPL application without such assistance (other than time constraints) then we respectfully suggest that you may need gap training to help you understand the foundations of making an RPL application. In order to assist you, we provide an application kit and we are always here to give advice on the most useful type of evidence you can provide and the process that will be followed.
Secondly, we will only communicate directly with the candidate, not a third party, as it is necessary to have 'competency conversations' with them to quickly resolve any questions they or we might have about the nature of the evidence, or for us to provide suggestions for more appropriate evidence to fill any gaps.
We also expect candidates who apply for recognition in TAE qualifications to have the professional knowledge to read and interpret the competency standards.
Sad to say, but 50% of applications from industry trainers do not meet the above requirements initially, but at the end of the process they have learned a lot about themselves and how to showcase their talents to the best advantage. Gaining a TAE, or any qualification, by RPL is not always a 'fast process'. It is a rigorous assessment processes. The results are worth it. Many of our graduates go on to build professional portfolios which aid them in seeking employment.
We do not guarantee your application will result in a qualification. Where you are not able to satisfy all the criteria through direct evidence, you have options:
There is no compulsion to complete gap training with us, but we hope that you do because having come this far together, it would be nice to complete the journey.
The Diplomas are not an extension of TAE40110 and it is not a matter of proving that you use the AQF4 skills over and over again. The Diplomas require solid evidence of deepening and extending your knowledge, skills and experience and leading and managing other training professionals.
