Finally we have some dates around the possible endorsement of the new TAE Training and Education Training Package which will include the new version of the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (TAE40115).
Initially Innovation & Business Skills Australia (IBSA) the Industry Skills Council (ISC) for the TAE Training Package were sending the new Certificate IV to the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) in June 2015, then for consideration at the September 1 meeting. Unfortunately this didn't happen so we're still unsure of an exact release date (neither is anyone else). We can still assume the qualification will be endorsed at some stage before the end of the year though.
The release of a new version of this national Trainer and Assessor qualification usually brings with it controversy, confusion and plenty of myths and misconceptions. While nothing is final until a Training Package is endorsed and goes up on Training.gov.au we'd like to take this early opportunity to clarify a few general things that usually worry people when a new version of this Cert IV is released.
