TAE40116 Certificate IV in
Training and Assessment
10 Days Face to Face + work to complete afterwards
- Courses are being run in our training rooms and also via remote learning using the video conferencing platform, Zoom. Our remote course is run in a similar way to our classroom-based course. Each day is led by one of our experienced trainers. Students are supported throughout the day by their trainer. They engage in a variety of learning activities and also have time to work on assessments. The main difference with remote learning is everyone will be in a virtual classroom. Students have the choice of booking into either classroom based delivery or remote learning via Zoom.
- Help Days are dedicated to revision, consolidation and time for one-on-one tuition. Whilst enrolled in our course, students can attend as many Help Days as needed. We are running Help Days in the classroom and also remotely where students book in to work with a trainer via Zoom.
- Vocational placement is not required with our course.
- Delivery of all practical training sessions and any group assessment activities are completed in-class.
- We use integrated assessments. This means less work for you.
- Our assessments have been created by us. We do not use "off-the-rack" assessments.
We believe we have the best and most dedicated trainers in Australia.
What students have said about our new virtual classes using ZOOM:
"I chose CBD College for Cert IV TAE because the 10 day intensive Zoom course fitted with my schedule. I also liked that there were help days available after teaching ends to assist with completing the assessment.
The quality of thought that has gone into the structure of the course and the assessment tasks blew me away. There is such intelligence in the design. The trainer was fantastic and the coach on help days really knew their stuff. Class size is small. Learning alongside peers is brilliant. This is no dreary, boring course." - Rachel
"I was hesitant at first because I prefer face to face training sessions. However, I am familiar with zoom because we use it a lot at work due to the current COVID-19 situation, so I know that it works. The training went well and I am happy that I proceeded with my enrollment for the Cert IV Training and Assessment Course." - Wally
"Having recently completed the Cert IV Trainer Assessor course, I would like to give a big thanks to Alka and the team at CBD College. Not only did I come away with the skills and knowledge of a trainer assessor, but by using the Zoom online platform I have developed a secondary set of skills - being able to communicate effectively using digital technology." - Milan
"This was my first experience of learning a course online, let alone via Zoom, and it was a lot easier then I was anticipating. Once I was familiar with the Zoom platform and how to navigate its various tools I was totally comfortable with the face to face component of the course. While there is obviously a large amount of content in the Cert IV course, at no time did I feel that I was being disadvantaged by not being physically in the room with the trainer." - Phil
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.
We are offering our course in two ways - either in our training rooms or remotely via a virtual classroom using the video conferencing platform, Zoom. Zoom is easy to use, is a stable platform and has allowed us to transition our TAE to include remote learning seamlessly. Students have the choice of booking into a classroom based course or a course being delivered remotely via Zoom.
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 trainers and to be thorough assessors, whether this be in a TAFE or an RTO or simply in the workplace.
We are a Registered Training Organisation (RTO No. 91399).

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):
- 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.
- 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?
- If you have, did you plan what you were going to say beforehand?
- Did you use anything to support your presentation eg visual aids to help convey your message?
- Did you get feedback on the presentation or reflect on afterwards?
- Do you think you would be able to ascertain a special needs candidate in the classroom, learning or work environment?
- Would you be able to think about effective ways to deal with inappropriate behaviour in a classroom?
- 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?
- Have you ever shown someone at school or at work how to do a particular task?
- 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).
- 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?
- 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 Help Days (these are held on scheduled days). You will also need to expect to complete our self-paced learning activities and suggested research. The volume of learning you should expect to complete will be within the suggested range for a Certificate IV qualification (6-12 months).
