IMPORTANT INFORMATION – Trainer and Assessor credential extension
The Department of Education and Training recently announced that the implementation of the new credential requirements for trainers and assessors has been postponed until 1 July 2019.
We recognise the amount of stress you may have been under trying to get your assessments completed by the initial April deadline, however we hope that this extension will provide some relief in getting your post course assessments done. This will enable trainers and assessors to continue to train while they complete gap training. We do encourage you to continue to complete your assessments as soon as possible.
Please let us know if we can do anything to help further, and we look forward to supporting you towards the qualification.
AVELING is pleased to provide experienced trainers and assessors (who hold the TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment) the option to upgrade to the new TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.
