1. TAE Cert IV - Comprehensive 8-9 Day option

This course caters for people without prior experience in training, but who wish to become a workplace Trainer and Assessor. 

In the classroom, we develop your Training skills for the workplace and trial them using practical exercises. We focus on how to design and deliver a presentation, and to conduct Assessments. This course incorporates training course validation and addressing adult language literacy and numeracy issues.

Your course is structured over 4 sessions ranging from 1-3 days each. (a total 8-9 days of classroom contact). After each session, a break is structured to enable you to absorb and practice the skills and to complete assessment tasks. This involves applying your course skills and knowledge in a workplace or simulated training environment. 

The course is conducted at a steady pace, which helps each student learn these new skills, while allowing time to develop and practice these skills in the workplace. We provide a workbook to guide you through the development phases and offer full support throughout your course, by giving you direct access to our Trainers at all times. This means you can contact us anytime you have a query.

You will have six (6) to twelve (12) months to complete the classroom components and assessments, but you can submit your assessments any time after the classroom component.

We offer flexibility in our scheduling and assist you to achieve your target completion time frame. You can set your own pace and work through the material steadily or rapidly to achieve your qualification sooner. 

To successfully complete this course, we anticipate you will have effective language & literacy skills, good communication ability and be capable of using Microsoft Word and PowerPoint computer programs at a basic level.

2. TAE Accelerated Option - for People with Training Experience

This is a customised intensive 5 day classroom course with 1 additional classroom Presentation day required, to formalise your existing training skills and knowledge. This course evolved from a need, identified from consultation with our students and industry, to acknowledge people with prior knowledge and experience in the world of training.

The units of the qualification are clustered and delivered in the classroom. Assessments and activities are partially completed during class time.

After hours work is required to finalise your presentations, complete the activity workbook and assessment tasks. It is feasible to complete most tasks during the 5 day classroom component, with dedication to the after hours components or you can take up to 6 months to lodge the workbook and assessments.

We offer the flexibility to attend the classroom components on Saturdays or over an extended week day time frame. Contact us to discuss your preferences and availability.

There may be a requirement for some students, to complete additional assessments after the course, to meet specific individual needs.

Note: You are required to demonstrate prior Training knowledge and skill. This will be evidenced, by submitting documents for a partial RPL process, prior to your enrolment being formalised.

It is anticipated that you will also have the following existing skill levels:

  • good communication ability
  • ability to use Microsoft Word & PowerPoint
  • language and literacy skill at level 3 or above

If you do not meet the RPL requirements for prior Trainer experience, or do not have the anticipated skill levels above, you may be required to complete additional training.

Hi Chris, I have completed the survey, but also just wanted to thank you in addition to that.  I was really impressed by your personal approach to training and gained a huge amount from the week.  20 Aug 15
