Online TAA40104 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment
A new TAE course has been released. Details will be posted here shortly.
The certificate IV is offered through a partnership arrangement with .
This course is primarily conducted by online courseware (also called computer based training, e-learning, elearning), with contact though email, by telephone and online meeting systems. Workbooks specifically guide the learning process. A 'class room' program is available in-house for four or more participants from the same organisation.
Experienced facilitators guide your progress. Regular contact is a feature and each stage of the Certificate IV commences with a facilitated session that ensures the program is relevant to your needs. A thorough approach to training and assessment is a key part of this program.
The TAA40104 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment has now replaced the BSZ40198 Certificate IV in Assessment and Workplace Training.
More information about the certificate IV course structure is available at: TAA40104 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment Course Structure and Explanation.

Who is the registered training provider? How is Derek Stockley involved?
provide the learning resources, study guide, workbooks and a qualified facilitator/assessor.
The partnership arrangement enables Derek’s clients to undertake the formal qualification, but with the ability to maintain the existing relationship with Derek.

This is complemented by the experienced facilitators at , who have specialised in workplace training using industry Training Packages. facilitators will be the major contact point for participants seeking full or partial recognition, see Facilitators.
Enrolment can be made at any time. It is not subject to term or semester time periods, however participant intake is grouped where possible. This provides the opportunity to access other participants at a similar stage. The course commences as soon as payment is confirmed.
Within reason, you can study as quickly or slowly as you like. Fast tracking is attractive for many participants. The enrolment is for 12 months. To undertake the training full-time in a classroom would take about 15 days.
If you already have the BSZ40198 Certificate IV in Assessment and Workplace Training, you can claim Recognition (also known as Recognition of Prior learning (RPL) and Recognition of Current Competence (RCC)) in some units by demonstrating currency of competency.
How much does it cost? What are the advantages?
There are three groups or categories of potential TAA40104 Certificate IV participants.
The fee covers access to the learning materials and courseware, administration and all assessment necessary prior to obtaining the qualification. GST is not payable by individuals, but is added for organisations paying for staff.
If desired, the principal course notes can be printed and supplied for an additional $50 (includes the Toolbox CD).
1. Full course
This category is for people who are new to the training field, or alternatively, have training experience but no recent certificate IV qualifications.
For new trainers, this involves completion of the learning requirements of all 14 modules and the preparation of evidence for assessment purposes.
For experienced trainers, this will involve review of all the modules. Although the basic training concepts are similar, there is no equivalence with the modules completed in older qualifications like the Certificate IV in Workplace Training (Category 2) or previous qualifications.
The evidence workload will be similar, although your familiarity with the concepts will allow you to progress your studies more quickly.
For Australian participants, the current fee for all units in the full course is $2500. (note: reduced fee)
2. Partial recognition
This category is for people who have completed the BSZ40198 Certificate IV in Assessment and Workplace Training, but may not have had recent relevant training experience.
Some units offer equivalence, so your BSZ40198 Certificate modules can be recognised, once additional minor evidence is supplied and your recent training experience is confirmed.
The TAA04 requirements are quite specific. The workload and effort required will be determined by your relevant and recent experience.
For Australian participants, the current fee for all units is between $1200 and $1500. The actual fee will be advised prior to enrolment and is dependent on the extent of study/evidence gathering required to demonstrate current competence. The initial deposit will be $700.
3. 'Full' recognition
This category is for people who have completed the BSZ40198 Certificate IV in Assessment and Workplace Training, and have recent and ongoing relevant training experience.
The TAA04 requirements are quite specific. However, the nature of your work enables you to compile evidence to confirm your competency in the TAA units, as well as those with equivalence to BSZ40198.
For Australian participants, the current fee for all units is $700.
