Over the past 6 years, CBD College has gained a reputation for delivering a cleverly- integrated face-to-face TAE course trained by some of the best and most highly qualified facilitators in Australia.

Our TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment course is unique.  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. 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.

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

You will receive a confirmation email upon enrolment with access details to your student portal containing all of your course materials. Prior to Day 1, you will need to download all materials and then access the Pre Course Materials folder containing key readings and online learning that will need to be undertaken prior to Day 1.

Literacy Requirements

There are underlying skill requirements of the TAE Training and Education Training Package.

Candidates are advised that they will need to possess effective language, communications and interpersonal skills and have the ability to write a range of documentation.

Candidates will also be expected to read and interpret training packages, develop and document learning programs, present information, use technology and prepare various records and documents. Furthermore, cognitive skills in planning, research, interpretation, analysis and synthesis form part of the skills requirements of many units.

Candidates with special needs are advised to email info@cbdcollege.edu.au prior to booking so that reasonable adjustments to training and assessment can be contemplated.

Where a student has an identified need for assistance with language, literacy or numeracy, CBD College’s trainers and assessors will endeavour to provide this assistance directly.

Assessment Requirements

There are 7 integrated Assessments as part of the CBD College Certificate IV in Training and Assessment. The assessments include delivery of training sessions and other practical tasks, role play/scenarios, written questioning, completion of templates and self-reflection tasks.

Please note that there are 2 x 40-minute training sessions that students will need to deliver in the second week of the course. Some preparation time will be given in class for this. There is a shorter training session that will be delivered in‐class during the first week.

Once you have been marked as competent in all assessments, you will be notified via email. Your Certificate and Record of Transcript will be posted to you within 10 business days of receiving your completion email.


Our experience has led us to believe that many candidates possess skills and knowledge that enables them to undertake an integrated course where training time can be reduced. This means focusing predominantly on knowledge and skills that you may not already have - but need to have - if you are going to be delivering nationally recognised training in a registered training organisation.

To gather information on how long it is likely to take you to complete Certificate IV in TAE with CBD College, please answer the following question(s):

Part A

  1. Have you worked with units of competency before in a training and assessing environment?

If you answered yes to this question, you are likely to need to spend less time on training and preparing to complete your assessments. You will need to attend the 10 face to face days of our course and then work through the assessment file at your own pace. You can expect to complete your qualification in less than the average student.

If you answered no, please ensure that you answer all of the questions below in Part B.

Part B

  1. Have you ever made a ‘presentation’ of some sort in a work, school, TAFE, university, church, sporting or other group environment?  This may not necessarily have been a formal ‘presentation’ but some sort of conveyance of information or idea in a structured sense?
  2. If you have, did you plan what you were going to say beforehand?
  3. Did you use anything to support your presentation eg visual aids to help convey your message?
  4. Did you get feedback on the presentation or reflect on afterwards?
  5. Do you think you would be able to ascertain a special needs candidate in the classroom, learning or work environment?
  6. Would you be able to think about effective ways to deal with inappropriate behaviour in a classroom?
  7. If you were training in a work or classroom environment, would you be able to ascertain any risks involved in the training and be able to formulate a plan to reduce or mitigate those risks?
  8. Have you ever shown someone at school or at work how to do a particular task?
  9. Have you ever documented a simple procedure to help train or instruct another? (This may not necessarily to have been in a formal training or work environment).
  10. Have you ever dealt with people from different cultures and if so, would you be able to think about ways that you could alter the way you train and assess to accommodate these differences?
  11. Do you have broad industry knowledge and experience relating to training and assessment?

If you have answered yes to all questions, you can expect to complete the qualification more quickly than the average learner.

If you have answered no to any of the questions, you should expect to need to attend a number of our Self-Paced Training Days (these are held every second Friday).
