We’re specialists. We do one thing, and we do it well: we create great facilitators, through our delivery of the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (TAE 40110), Advanced Trainers Program and upgrades for existing trainers.

Our TAE is for people who wish to develop the skills to be able to excel at training and assessing in the Australian vocational education and training (VET) sector.

Achievement of this qualification or an equivalent by trainers and assessors is a requirement of the Australian Quality Training Framework Essential Standards for Registration.

With the TAE, you will learn how to plan, organise and deliver training; plan and implement assessment activities; and design training programs that meet client needs; and deal with LL&N issues.
