Extension Granted for Trainers & Assessors

An extension has been granted for trainers and assessors to meet the new TAE credential requirements – you now have until 1 July 2019


As the April 1st deadline for trainers and assessors to meet the new TAE credential requirements has been approaching, many trainers and assessors have been busy completing their assessments for TAELLN411 and TAEASS502 – so that come 1st April, they held these new core units from the TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.

However, yesterday, the Department of Education and Training announced an extension to this deadline, extending the date to 1 July 2019.

You can read the press-release here:

The extension comes in response to RTOs delivering the TAE units and upgrade processes struggling to keep up with demand as more and more trainers and assessors undertook their additional training at the last minute.

So, if you’ve been frantically trying to upgrade your qualification, take a deep breath as you now have a bit more time.

We would like to congratulate those who have worked hard to complete either of the two units or the full upgrade. If you have completed all your assessments and been marked competent, please be assured we are working hard to have your certificates out to you as soon as possible.

We encourage anyone who still needs to complete the upgrade or individual units to keep on with your progress and get your assessments completed as soon as you can, so as to avoid another rush in May and June.

You can be sure that there will be no further extension.

Need a reminder about what the new requirements are?

By 1 July 2019, all trainers and assessors using their Certificate IV in Training and Assessment as their training and assessing qualification must hold either:

1. TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, and (or including):

  • TAEASS502 Desgin and develop assessment tools AND
  • TAELLN411 Address adult language, literacy and numeracy skills


2. TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment

If you still need to complete either of the two above units, or want to fully upgrade to TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, we are continuing to take enrolments. Please note to meet the new deadline, you should make sure you have enrolled by 25th May 2019 at the very latest, and submitted all assessments by 8th June.
