The central focus of the TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment Training Package is the learner and the learning process. You will learn how to:

  • Create a meaningful learning environment which includes the application of inclusive work practices,responsiveness to diversity, developing a culture that supports learning, ensuring a safe and healthy learning environment, developing and maintaining knowledge of the vocational education and training system, maintaining currency.
  • Design learning processes and learning products that enable the learner to learn.
  • Manage, guide, facilitate and monitor the learning process and to provide meaningful learning experiences.
  • Measure progress in learning and judging whether competence has been demonstrated.

The Fortress Learning Cert IV TAE in Training and Assessment is designed around three Fields of Study:

Field A: Design

In this field you will develop competencies that will enable you to use training packages and accredited courses in the context of a range of organisational needs. You will also learn how to conceptualise, design, develop and evaluate learning programs to meet the needs of identified learners.

Field B: Deliver

In this field you will develop competencies that will allow you to deliver training in a range of workplace contexts. This includes individual and group instruction, planning the presentation and reviewing the presentation.

Field C: Assess

In this field you will develop competencies that will enable you to contribute to the assessment process, plan and organise assessment activities and processes including Recognition of Prior Learning, assess the competence of a candidate and participate in the assessment validation process. These competencies are completed in the context of a competency based assessment system.

The TAE10 Training and Assessment Training Package is designed to meet the current and future competency development and qualification needs of new and existing personnel working in a broad range of work functions and activities within vocational education and training. It provides a clear set of benchmarks to support both initial competency achievement and ongoing staff and professional development.

At least 2 elective units must be selected from the elective units listed below. One elective unit may be selected from any currently endorsed Training Package or accredited course. Elective units must be relevant to the work outcome, local industry requirements and the qualification level. Where a unit is chosen from another currently endorsed Training Package or accredited course, it must be from a qualification or course at Certificate III level or above, and must contribute towards the vocational outcome of the program.

Supporting multiple audiences and audience needs

The TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training & Assessment provides significant choice and flexibility to suit a diverse audience with multiple competency development needs operating in a wide range of environments.

The audience may range from the ‘novice’ trainer or assessor who will be using this Training Package to develop specific competencies to commence training and/or assessment practices to experienced practitioners using the Training Package for ongoing professional development and career development.

The competency development needs of the audience may range from the competence required to deliver on-the-job instruction in a specific work area or for a piece of equipment, to the breadth of competence required of training and assessment staff employed in an RTO, to competence in learning product development, consultancy or coordination functions.

The audience also includes the range of organisations and operating contexts in which the Training Package might be used, ranging from an RTO, which might be a public provider, enterprise/organisation, commercial college, community provider, or school, to an organisation working in a partnership arrangement with an RTO, or an organisation that delivers non-recognised vocational education and training. The RTO audience is also diverse and includes TAFE institutes, private commercial colleges, enterprises, community organisations, group training companies and schools.

A critical aspect in developing this Training Package has been to ensure its relevance to this diversity of organisations. Some units may be more relevant to some operating contexts than others but the breadth of units ensures that all contexts have been addressed.

Experience tells us that self-paced students can complete the course in as little as 3 months, and we have had one woman complete it in 2 weeks. The average length of time would be about 6 months.

While the course is notionally 300 or more hours in length, the way that we have created an almost seamless single course of study instead of 10 separate topics means that you can do it more efficiently.

Successful students tend to allocate a night or two a week, and the occasional weekend. Experience tells us that regular allocation of time and a disciplined approach are needed to improve your chances of success.

To assist you to plan for success, we can provide you with a Suggested Study Plan that gives you a schedule of what to do each week in order to complete the course in 3 months, 6 months or 12 months.

Fortress Learning is committed to making quality training accessible. For this reason, we have a policy that our programs will never exceed 50% of the national average fee. Wherever possible, we reduce the fees further.

Experience tells us that almost 70% of our students would not be studying if it were not for our fee structure. Extensive collaboration with prospective students also tells us that students would like to choose the duration of their studies, and believe that pricing can be an incentive to complete their studies in a shorter period of time.

For this reason, the fees for the TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training & Assessment are:

Six months enrolment – $597 upfront

Twelve months enrolment – $797 upfront

In both cases:

1. Initial payment is to be received within 7 days of enrolment.

2. The period of enrolment commences on the first day of your nominated start month. For example, if you enrol August 14 and indicate that you wish to start in September 14, then your time will start on the first of September.

3. If an extension beyond your nominated duration is required, this can be attained for a fee of $125 per month, or part thereof.

There are a number of payment options available, which you can review here http://fortresslearning.com.au/how-to-apply/payment-options/

It’s one thing to think about taking the next step to secure your future. It is another to actually go and do it.

If you are ready to take control of the direction your life takes, then we invite you to join us.

What students have said about online learning with Fortress Learning

Studying at my own pace, in my own time at a location that suited me. Online studying is my preferred study method. I also found the Trainers and Assessors to be fair, well informed and accessible to answer all my questions. -Jaylene Brett

The flexibility of studying when time allowed me suited my situation at the time of study.

The price was the best I could find. And finally the support from Scott my tutor and Sarah in the office was fantastic for the price I paid. I worked at gaining a good foundation in TAE and as a result created a great base for building my many lesson plans required in the building and construction classes I plan and teach. -Matthew Tait

Someone recommended Fortress Learning to me, and I initially subscribed to the newsletter to see what they were all about. I liked what I read, and so I enrolled. Completing the course online worked for me, as I work and have a young family, so finding the time to attend classes is difficult. I was also impressed with the cost, as it was significantly lower than many other RTOs I researched.

Thanks to Fortress Learning for a great experience. I really enjoyed completing the course, I learnt so much, that will add value to my work, and equip me to move forward in my career! -Rebecca Millar
