RPL for TAE40116 if someone holds TAA40104

There is no direct equivalence between TAA40104 and TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment and generally it is recommended the person completes the new course in its entirety. Remember, the TAA40104 was endorsed in 2004 so an RPL assessor will be looking at units that may have been awarded well over 10 years ago. Without demonstrating currency, there would not be any RPL for the TAA40104.

There are some cases however, where a person may have significant recent experience in Training, Assessing, and VET and hold only TAA40104. We are finding this scenario surprisingly common.

By studying the mapping guide produced by IBSA (the former TAA and TAE Training Package Industry Skills Council) for the TAA to TAE Transition, one can infer some equivalent units to TAE40116.

These are the implied equivalences between the TAA40104, TAE40110 and TAE40116. They are not granted as automatic credit transfers and a person must demonstrate through evidence currency of skills and knowledge in that unit.

 

TAA40104 TAE40110 TAE40116
TAAASS402C Assess competence TAEASS402B or TAEASS402A Assess competence TAEASS401 Assess competence
TAADEL401B Plan and organise group-based delivery
TAADEL402B Facilitate group-based learning

(Combined)
TAEDEL401A Plan, organise and deliver group-based learning TAEDEL401 Plan, organise and deliver group-based learning
TAADEL403B Facilitate individual learning
TAADEL404B Facilitate work-based learning

(Combined)
TAEDEL402A Plan, organise and facilitate learning in the workplace TAEDEL402 Plan, organise and facilitate learning in the workplace
Elective units (only 1 needed for the new TAE40116)
TAADEL301C Provide training through instruction and demonstration of work skills TAEDEL301A Provide work skill instruction TAEDEL301 Provide work skill instruction
BSBCMM401A Make a presentation BSBCMM401A Make a presentation BSBCMM401 Make a presentation
TAATAS401A Maintain information requirements of training and/or assessment organisations TAETAS401A or TAETAS401B Maintain training and assessment information TAETAS401 Maintain training and assessment information
TAAASS301C Contribute to assessment TAEASS301B or TAEASS301A Contribute to assessment TAEASS301 Contribute to assessment
TAALLN401B Address language, literacy and numeracy issues within learning and assessment practice TAELLN401A Address adult language, literacy and numeracy skills TAELLN411 Address adult language, literacy and numeracy skills
TAADEL405B Coordinate and facilitate distance-based learning TAEDEL403A Coordinate and facilitate distance-based learning TAEDEL403 Coordinate and facilitate distance-based learning
TAADEL501B Facilitate e-learning TAEDEL501A Facilitate e-learning TAEDEL501 Facilitate e-learning

 

Therefore, if a candidate holds a TAA40104 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment with these units:

  • TAAASS402C Assess competence
  • TAADEL401B Plan and organise group-based delivery
  • TAADEL402B Facilitate group-based learning
  • TAADEL403B Facilitate individual learning
  • TAADEL404B Facilitate work-based learning

By demonstrating currency they may be able to be awarded RPL in the following three TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment units:

  • TAEASS401 Assess competence
  • TAEDEL401 Plan, organise and deliver group-based learning
  • TAEDEL402 Plan, organise and facilitate learning in the workplace

This same logic could be applied to the following units:

  • TAEASS301 Contribute to assessment (TAEASS301B > TAEASS301A > TAAASS301C all equivalent)
  • TAEDEL301 Provide work skill instruction (TAEDEL301A > TAADEL301C all equivalent)
  • TAEDEL403 Coordinate and facilitate distance-based learning (TAEDEL403A > TAADEL405B all equivalent)
  • TAEDEL501 Facilitate e-learning (TAEDEL501A > TAADEL501B all equivalent)
  • TAELLN411 Address adult language, literacy and numeracy skills (TAELLN401A > TAALLN401B all equivalent)
  • TAETAS401 Maintain training and assessment information (TAETAS401A > TAETAS401B all equivalent)
  • BSBCMM401 Make a presentation (BSBCMM401A is equivalent)

 

What evidence would I need to prove currency?

This is best determined in consultation with your assessor because everyone's experience is different. However a typical evidence portfolio to demonstrate currency would show that in the last two years they have actively and regularly used the skills and knowledge set out in the units above. They might provide things in reference to the last couple of years such as:

  • Reference letters from employers
  • Job descriptions
  • Student feedback
  • Lesson plans
  • Training plans
  • Completed "marked" competency assessments
  • Videos of them training
  • Training resources developed
