Upgrading from TAE40110 to TAE40116

If you hold TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, an upgrade program is available.

Check the list of units of competency that you have completed and compare them to the list below under credit transfer. You will find that you are entitled for up to 8 units of competency through Credit Transfer (CT).

Depending on what you have done as a trainer, you may be able to submit a Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) application for the outstanding units not covered by credit transfer. For example, participation in an assessment validation panel can be used as evidence towards TAEASS403 Participate in assessment validation.

If you don’t have enough evidence for Recognition of Prior Learning but you have completed TAEASS401B or TAEASS403B, contact your St John State or Territory office about completing a special program that will enable you to complete TAEASS401 and TAEASS403.

Credit Transfer
