How we help RTOs get great TAE40116 qualified trainers


"She's the perfect fit! She's got 20+ years of industry experience, up to date industry qualifications, absolutely LOVES training. But... She doesn't have her Cert IV Training and Assessment so we can't employ her."

This is what Liz had to say about one lady they were considering employing as a trainer and assessor for their RTO's community services qualifications.

Liz is right. The Standards for RTOs mean that to employ a trainer and assessor, regardless of how experienced and qualified she is, she must hold TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment. We solved this problem for Liz and her now happily employed trainer Carol.

We got her on the job sooner and our solution is surprising many RTO employers.
