Welcome to the Australian Institute of Vocational Trainers

The AIOVT was founded by veteran trainers Greig Ritchie and Paul Reynolds.

Here at AIOVT, we think differently. We’re changing the way vocational training is offered in Australia, because we believe it can be done better.

We are determined to provide only the highest standards of training to those completing their certification with us

Having worked in the industry for a combined 40 years, we have been increasingly frustrated by the standard of some trainers emerging with the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (TAE 40110). Allowing people to enter the industry before they’re ready benefits no one – not the company who looks to engage your services, the people who seek to learn from you, and certainly not yourself.

We understand that the TAE is an investment – in your abilities, and in your future – and we want to ensure that each participant has the opportunity to become 100% job ready.

We span our TAE over eight days instead of the traditional five offered by some other institutions.  We do this to give participants the opportunity to become great facilitators in their chosen field.

We are determined to provide only the highest standards of training to those completing their certification with us, and subsequently we are determined to produce only the highest level of vocational trainers – those who are passionate about their industry, their knowledge, and strive for nothing short of excellence.
