About This Course

This includes formal training for organisations such as TAFE or private Registered Training Organisations (RTOs), as well as on the job training, enterprise training, and workplace assessments.

We also include, free of charge for all of our TAE students, fortnightly live Q&A webinars.  Each webinar is scheduled to cover particular units from the course, but also allows plenty of time for questions on any topic or unit.  These webinars, which are optional to attend, provide our students with additional support to assist them with completing their home studies.  Further information can be found under the Delivery Methods, and Course Dates, tabs on this page.

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.

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Unfortunately not, as the course has been superseded already since those particular qualifications were available.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.

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.
