Cert IV in Training & Assessment

How can obtaining a Cert IV in Training & Assessment be beneficial to you?

Firstly it is a requirement that any individual who trains as part of their job role, whether internal or external training, must have a minimum of Cert IV in Training & Assessment. The qualification provides participants with the skills and knowledge and passion to deliver interesting and informative training sessions to groups and individuals navigate the Australian training system and undertake competency based assessments against any benchmark or standard.  All trainers and assessors, who work in or for registered training organisations in Australia and wish to work without supervision, are required to have their TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.

Distance and online learners also have facilitators support for any queries or assistance they might need.

3. RPL (Recognition of prior learning)

If you are currently training and assessing and you already hold the underpinning knowledge and skills required to demonstrate competency, then RPL may be an option. Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is an assessment process that assesses your non-formal and formal learning to determine how your current skills and knowledge match the competency outcomes for partial or full qualification. RPL must be based on evidence which can be matched against relevant units. This evidence will depend on the unit and some evidence will go across a number of units. Your assessor must be satisfied that you have addressed all the requirements of the relevant unit before they can grant you RPL in that unit. RPL assessment at The Pivot Institute allows you to evidence your skills and knowledge through the completion of an RPL kit
