FAQ’s

The Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) provides a guide to the volume of learning, which describes how long a student who does not hold any of the competencies identified in the relevant units of competency or modules would take to develop all the required skills and knowledge.  Based on this, the guide suggests that a Certificate IV level qualification should take between 6 months to 2 years to complete.

A shorter timeframe may be possible if, for example, the student has a teaching or training background, already holding the required skills and knowledge. 

Our students have up to 12 months to complete the full TAE40116 course, however, as mentioned above - a good portion of our students finish within 6 months. Naturally, this depends on each individual’s personal circumstances, commitments and experience.  If you have the time and dedication to commit more time each week, to your studies, then obviously you will complete in a faster timeframe, than someone who is juggling family, work, other studies, and extra curricular activities.

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

To deliver the best outcomes for students enrolled in our trainer and assessor course in Gold Coast, Brisbane and Cairns, the average class size is 8 to 10, with all public classes capped at 12.

Yes, as of April 2019, TAE40116 Cert 4 Training and Assessment is the mandatory qualification to Train and Assess.

While we are confident that our students will be able to submit within RAM's allocated timeframe of 12 months, and we provide extensive support to assist with this, there are occasions where our student’s personal circumstances may unavoidably cause delays for them. Due to regular updates to our assessment materials, as well as to training packages in general, if we are able to offer an extension, we are only able to extend due dates by 1 month at a time, should you require it. Please note, there is no guarantee that we will be able to offer an extension, but we are more than happy to do so where possible.

The first extension is free of charge. Any further extensions requested, will incur a re-enrolment fee of between $395 and $595, dependent on whether a complete new set of course materials is required. In some cases, this may mean you will need to re-do parts, or all, of your assessment tasks using the new materials. 

We will check in with you regularly, once you have commenced, to make sure you're progressing.  And don't forget to join (free) as many of our Live Q&A Webinars as you like - these are a great help to many of our students!

This will depend on if and when Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA), which is the governing body, decides a change or update is required for this qualification.

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

Success Training Academy is a non-RTO, who partner with a range of reputable RTO's, in order to deliver, or recruit students for, the range of different courses that we offer.  This enables us to pick and choose the best training materials, trainers, and delivery methods for each course.

RAM Training Services (RTO #: 31701) is the principle RTO that Success Training Academy partners with, in order to offer the TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training & Assessment course.  Success Training Academy is the sister company of RAM, sharing the same team of superSTAr's.  We do the recruiting of students, RAM is who you will be enrolled with, and whom deliver the training and issue your certificate upon successful completion of your course.  Any testimonials or reviews you see for STA, are for trainers we share with RAM.
