FAQ’s

You have up to 12 months to complete the full TAE40116 course, although the expected duration is approximately 6 months. This depends on each individual’s personal circumstances, commitments and experience. 

You’ll need access to the internet, a computer/laptop with Microsoft Office, and a printer.

The average class size is 8 to 10, with public classes capped at 12 students.

If you’re currently working as a trainer and assessor then yes, as of April 2019, the TAE40116 Certificate 4 in Training and Assessment will be the mandatory qualification required to train and assess.

Unfortunately not, as the course has been superseded already since those qualifications were last available, none of the units are equivalent to the new TAE40116 and you’ll need to complete the full course.

Healthy Business Training Academy is the principle RTO that Success Training Academy partners with, in order to deliver our courses.  While you will technically be enrolled with HBTA (whom also issue your certificate upon successful completion of your course with STA), your training will be delivered by STA's highly reputable trainers.
