Entry Requirements
Prior Learning

Before enrolling, you will be required to provide a copy of your certification (including Record of Results) for TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.

If you do not hold the previous versions of the two Units of Competency aligned to this pathway, we recommend you instead attend the Assessor Course.

Language Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) Survey

If this is your first AVELING course, you will be required to complete a Language Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) survey.

The survey will be emailed to you upon enrolment and must be submitted and reviewed prior to starting the program.

Based on the outcome of the survey, AVELING may contact you to discuss options that will best suit your individual learning needs. Please note that additional costs may be incurred if literacy support is required.

Assessment Support

AVELING offers free assessment support services as part of any of our nationally recognised courses. Your Assessment Support person can help in the planning and preparation of assignment tasks and is available via telephone, email, or monthly group workshops.
