Training and Assessment (TAE)
Training and Assessment (TAE) qualifications are probably the most important yet contentious in the VET sector.
Important because under the new Standards trainers and assessors must hold the TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment or its successor.
Contentious because the qualifications have not always been delivered and assessed with the integrity and rigorousness that is required.
The bottom line is that a Certificate IV should typically take 0.5 to 2 years to complete and a Diploma 1 to 2 years and whilst we do not hold students back at WATI (in some cases students have evidence to meet the requirements by recognition of prior learning) we want to be able to put our hand on our heart and say our students know what they are doing.
