Cert IV wokplace and assessment

Postby raznik » Thu Feb 17, 2011 12:28 pm

Hi all,
I am very much contemplating doing my cert 4 soon, and was wondering if any of you have already done so, and if you have can you shed some light on how easy or difficult it is.
Also any suggestions as to what company offers a fair price for the course?

Hi Nicki, I've got mine, but had it under the previous system. The course is fairly detailed now, with about 15 units. The amount of paperwork associated with it is very extensive. I must say that if you want to be an educator you need it because of the need for uniformaty in assessment. The beauty of it is I can go into any workplace if they need an assessor. LOL...made it intersting during my nail course last year too.........
My advice...go for it, but be prepared for some hard work.

Hi there.

I earned my Certificate IV in Assessment and Workplace Training as part of a frontline management course for work a few years back and then upgraded to the Cert IV in Training and Assessment a few years later which is what it is known as now. (I was required to upgrade as part of legislative and company requirements). I found the two courses to be quite different.

One thing I have noticed is that you do need a reasonably good level of literacy. A lot of people who dropped out of the course could not keep up with the reading and writing components as well as the computer skills required. You also need vocational competence, access to a training and assessment environment and depending on which training organisation you go through, your year 12 or mature age with extensive work experience. The course is quite involved, moreso than the first one.

In a lot of cases now, you are legally required to have the Cert IV in T&A in order to be an assessor, particularly if you're delivering a nationally recognised course (as opposed to, say, a manufacturer's course). So if you're going to be running national courses, go for it but if it's a supplier's or manufacturer's course, the Cert IV is a lot of effort and might not be worth your while.

As for training providers of the course, it's too hard to recommend any given one as there are so many out there who offers many modes of study options. It is simply a matter of getting out there and researching the options and finding one that suits you best.

Hey I did mine online via a nationally recognized training organization and found it very easy and straight forward. I had online support via skype with my teacher during business hours :)
