Trainers and assessors of vocational schools and educational training centers must hold a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment in order to qualify as such. The certificate is a mandatory requirement and nationally recognised. Anyone who intends to embark on a career as a trainer must complete this training program.

The Certificate IV in Training and Assessment Qualification



The Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, particularly TAE40110, replaces the previous TAA40104, in order to improve the competencies of trainers and assessors. This training program is designed to help a trainer develop skills to confidently train groups and individuals in various types of organizations, whether in the public or corporate sector.

Students will learn how to:

  • conduct training and assessment evaluations
  • lead a team with innovation
  • develop training policies and procedures
  • manage contracted work and people
  • recruit, select and induct staff

This updated course is designed to develop specific training skills for:

  • reading and interpreting qualification rules and determine licensing requirements
  • customizing units of competency to meet a client’s needs
  • preparing learning plans
  • identifying language, numeracy and literacy requirements of a learning program
  • planning, organising and facilitating training sessions
  • assessing student’s competence
  • supporting and monitoring learning
  • participating in assessment validation

Certificate IV in Training and Assessment Options

Training programs are now available online and some providers offer self-paced learning where the student completes the program at his own pace, but not longer than 12 months. Self-paced learners will receive learner manuals, comprehensive video and audio materials which they can read, watch and listen to at their own pace.

Past experience and similar training is valuable and may reduce the time and effort required to obtain a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment. A training provider can help a student obtain recognition or credits for past experience and knowledge also known as Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) or Recognition of Current Competence (RCC).

The Certificate IV in Training and Assessment is for:

  • trainers and assessors in the industry
  • teachers. Lecturers and trainers in public and private vocational educational training organizations
  • on-the-job assessors
  • off-shore trainers
  • learning or training managers
  • Human Resources Professional Development officer

The Certificate IV in Training and Assessment is recognized by all Registered Training Organisations in Australia.
