Unique CBD TAE Key Points:

  1. Courses are being run in our training rooms and also via remote learning using the video conferencing platform, Zoom. Our classroom course involves 7 days in the classroom and the last 3 days via Zoom where learners will experience training and assessment in an online environment. Our Zoom 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 for the full course. Students have the choice of booking into either classroom based delivery or remote learning via Zoom.
  2. 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. Students book in to work with a trainer one on one via Zoom.
  3. Vocational placement is not required with our course.
  4. Delivery of all practical training sessions and any group assessment activities are completed in-class within the 10 days.
  5. We use integrated assessments. This means less work for you.
  6. Our assessments have been created by us – they are interesting, intuitive and relevant to anyone who is or would like to be a trainer and assessor in the VET sector. We do not use 'off-the-rack' assessments.

We believe we have the best and most dedicated trainers in Australia.

Over the past 10 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 for 7 days with the last 3 days via Zoom or all 10 days via Zoom. Students have the choice of booking into either type of course. After completing the Face-to-Face course, there is work to complete afterwards. 

Our TAE40122 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).

TAE40122 Certificate IV Training and Assessment requires completion of 12 units of competency (6 core and 6 elective). TAE40122 has been packaged by CBD College to meet the packaging rules as follows:

Entry requirements

If you would like to enter this program, you must be able to demonstrate vocational competency in your proposed teaching and assessing area. Vocational competency is defined as broad industry knowledge and experience, and may include, but is not limited to, holding a relevant unit of competency or qualification.

Work required

You will need to complete assessment tasks after the face-to-face component of the course and are free to submit your work as soon as it is completed. You will have a maximum of 9 months from your course start date to submit Part 1 of your assessment tasks. Once Part 1 has been marked as satisfactory, you will receive and work on Part 2 TAE40122 Assessment Tasks. You will have 3 months to submit Part 2. For a better indication of how long this course may take you to complete, please partake in our pre-course questionnaire by clicking here.

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

Note there is no requirement for you to complete assessment tasks in a workplace. All assessments are scenario-based, although you are given the option in several assessments to draw from your place of work and your own experience in the creation of learning plans, session plans and training materials.

Preparation for Day 1

Day 1 will commence with you being immersed in training and assessment of one of the TAE units - HLTAID009 Provide CPR. At the conclusion of the CPR class you will move into the TAE training room and the rest of your TAE course will begin.

There are two online learning modules that need to be completed prior to Day 1.
