Learning Options

The TAE40116 – Certificate IV in Training and Assessment is delivered through a blended delivery model consisting of:

  • Induction Session.  Overview of the Program
  • Pre-workshop structured learning and reflection activities prior to the face-to-face workshop sessions
  • Face-to-face workshops.  These workshops provide revision and application of the pre-workshop learning
  • Supported study sessions.  Scheduled support sessions

Assessment Process

Assessments are designed to help you demonstrate your skills and knowledge. They allow us to confirm you can perform to the standard required in the workplace, to meet all of the requirements of the course program. You will gather evidence required for each unit’s assessment in a workplace or registered training organisation, using real work activities. The assessment evidence will be prepared and applied outside of the face-to-face workshops.

Examples of assessments for this course include;

  • Knowledge questions
  • Portfolio of task based assessment evidence
  • Workplace observations
  • Recognition of prior learning option (see below)

TasTAFE can assess your skills and knowledge based on your previous education, work history or life experience.

Recognition of Prior Learning

It makes sense that you should be recognised for the things you already know how to do. TasTAFE can assess your skills and knowledge based on your previous education, work history or life experience. This may help you gain your qualification a whole lot faster.
