TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment - Fast Track for qualified Dive Instructors

The Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (TAE40116) is the most current nationally recognised qualification for VET trainers, that specifies the competencies required to plan, develop, deliver and assess training. All registered training organisations (such as TAFE) and some workplaces require these competencies for you to work with them.

Candidates generally undertake this qualification because they possess vocational competence in a specific industry/subject/technical area and they need to develop or extend competence in training and assessment to facilitate and assess the learning of other individuals.
