* Please see Requirements section before enrolling into this course.

CBD College has devised its own unique TAE40110 Cert IV TAE course. This course has its underpinnings in the constructivist educational models inspired by the observational child-based Montessori and Reggio Emilia models, and refined in the adult sense by the likes of Jerome Bruner. It is far-removed from the rote-learning and lecture-style courses on offer elsewhere in the market. Our course is very much a “learning by doing” course with time given in class to complete most of the assessments. We aim to arm candidates with the practical skills to go out and be engaging and dynamic deliverers of training and to be thorough assessors, whether this be in a TAFE or an RTO or simply in the workplace.

Our TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment qualification is the minimum requirement for a practitioner who is required to design and develop training initiatives linked to national units of competency, Registered Training Organisation (RTO) or associated business.

We are a Nationally Recognised Registered Training Organisation (RTO No. 91399).

Who this course will suit:

This course will suit those who are prepared to allocate 6 consecutive business days and work hard to achieve their qualification. It will not suit those who want a casual approach to learning that spans weeks and months. If you are prepared to work hard to get your qualification quickly, this course is for you.

Entry requirements

There are no formal entry requirements for TAE40110. You will need to have basics computer skills and be able to use Microsoft Word and Powerpoint to complete the assessments. It is assumed that participants have an appropriate level of literacy.

Pathways From The Qualification

After achieving TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, candidates may undertake TAA50104 Diploma of Training and Assessment or may choose to undertake TAE70110 Vocational Graduate Certificate in Adult Language, Literacy and Numeracy Practice.

Work required

You will need to complete your assessment work after the face-to-face component of the course. Please be advised that Assessment tasks must be handed in by August 20, 2017 in order for us to have enough time to mark them and give you time for any resubmission work that is necessary, as the final date for any RTO to issue this qualification is October 5, 2017. Previously we have given students 6 months to submit but because of the onset of TAE40116 this is now not possible. 

Feedback has suggested that average to excellent computer skills along with VET experience can greatly lower the time spent on assessments.


Students will need to complete some Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) online learning prior to attendance and will be given login details after enrolment. This will take approximately 3 hours. The LLN material that students will need to know as part of this qualification is contained in this online learning and students will need to access it in order to answer their assessments.
