TAE40110 to TAE40116 Upgrade (yellow circle below)
According to the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) Amendment 2017), by 1/7/19 all trainers and assessors in Australia will need to ensure that (unless they hold a Diploma or higher level qual in Adult Education), they hold:
 TAE40110 + TAELLN411 (or older TAELLN401A) + TAEASS502 (or older TAEASS502A or TAEASS502B)
If you hold TAE40110, to remain compliant, you have two options:
Option 1: Fast Upgrade to make your TAE40110 compliant:
as single units to your TAE40110
(You won’t end up with a TAE40116, but under the Standards, you don’t have to hold a TAE40116).
Option 2: TAE40110 to TAE40116 Upgrade:
After this Gap Assessment, you will end up with a TAE40116 so long as you have:
- a TAE40110 and hold TAELLN411 and TAEASS502
- a current elective
To proceed with Option 2, see below.
Background When TAE40110 went to TAE40116, not only did TAELLN411 Address adult language, literacy and numeracy skills and TAEASS502 Design and develop assessment tools, become core units, but some of the existing core units came over as non-equivalent core units in the new qual.
What this course does: This course bridges the gaps between those abovementioned old core units in the TAE40110 and their non-equivalent counterparts in TAE40116.
Who it is aimed at: Those students holding TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment who have achieved the units TAELLN411 Address adult language, literacy and numeracy skills and TAEASS502 Design and develop assessment tools either at the time of doing their original TAE40110 or afterwards as single units AND who want a new qualification issued to them bearing the code and name TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.
Important Note: If you hold TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment and you have the units TAELLN411 and TAEASS502, you have satisfied the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) Amendment 2017), so you do not need to enrol in this course. This is only for students wishing to hold a TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.
