TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment

Combine your current vocational qualifications and experience with the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment to become a qualified trainer and assessor.

The Cert IV in Training and Assessment qualifies you to work as a trainer and/or assessor in the Australian vocational education and training sector.  This means you can work for TAFE and other Registered Training Organisations delivering nationally recognised training in your vocational field, both in a classroom environment and in the workplace. 

Living & Learning Nillumbik has been successfully delivering the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment in Eltham, Victoria since 2003.  It is a classroom-based course delivered with a strong learner focus and the opportunity to develop practical delivery skills.

Our Cert IV Training and Assessment classes are held at our Eltham campus, a neighbourhood house and Learn Local community centre in the leafy Shire of Nillumbik, in the north-east of Melbourne.

    (Living & Learning Nillumbik Performance Indicator Report 2016, Victorian State Government Department of Education and Training)
  2. Experience
    We have been delivering the Cert IV for the past 15 years, since 2003.
  3. Small class sizes
    We have a maximum of 14 people per course.
  4. Support for learning
    At Living & Learning Nillumbik you will be warmly welcomed by friendly and supportive staff and trainers.  Our courses are carefully designed to maximise the benefits of face to face learning, where you will receive ongoing support from your trainer and classmates.

    Some training organisations require you to have access to your own 'practice environment' (or group of 8 or more people outside of class to be your ‘learners’) for your practical assessment in this course.  We understand many people do not have access to a workplace or network that can support them in this way, so instead we allow time in the classroom for you to do the required training facilitation with your fellow classmates.  Delivering your training and assessment sessions in class also means you receive instant feedback from your trainer on your progress for those important components of the course.
