CHANGES FROM TAE40110 TO TAE40116
We are currently working on the new Training Package and hope to have it added to our scope of registration this year. Please see note below in regards to Upgrade from TAE40110 to TAE40116.
ASQA Standards for RTO’s 2015 current amendment has stated that all as of April 2019 Trainers and Assessors must hold a minimum Cert IV TAE40116 or TAE40110 which includes TAELLN411 and TAEASS502,502A or 502B.
Requirement to upgrade TAE qualification (from ASQA website)
The Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) has been made aware that some registered training organisations (RTOs) are distributing marketing information by e-mail indicating that all trainers and assessors must ‘upgrade’ their qualifications in order to comply with the Standards for RTOs 2015 as a result of revised qualifications in the TAE Training and Assessment Training Package, including the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment. This information is not correct.
While the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) has recently made a recommendation to the COAG Industry and Skills Council that the changes to the TAE training package be applied to the existing VET workforce, no decision has been made on this matter and such a decision would require changes to the Standards for RTOs 2015.
Should such a change be made, RTOs would be advised well in advance of any implementation and afforded ample time to meet the new requirements.
For an RTO to market the revised Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (TAE40116), it must first be registered to deliver this qualification.
