Course Structure

This course is organised into five (5) units of competency from the TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment qualification.

The program is comprised of seven face to face classroom workshops, one presentation day (if required) and a coaching/mentoring day for participants who may require additional support.

Part of the program contains sections of self-paced learning where participants are required to complete some assessments within their workplace/outside of classroom workshops. This includes on-the-job learning, research and additional reading.

Forsythes Training has grouped the units of competency into two (2) clusters (listed below) which provides more opportunity for flexible delivery and assessment.

Participants must attend clustered units in a block of consecutive training days.

Participants are provided a full brief on the outcomes of the training and assessment and are provided an overview at the commencement of the program.

This is discussed in detail with participants and are advised in induction to seek support from the trainer/assessor should the need arise throughout the program.
