About the upgrade

Students who complete this upgrade program successfully will be issued with a Statement of Attainment for the relevant unit/(s), or, if eligible, a certificate for the full TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment. Study this qualification at Monash and be among the first to gain this nationally recognised qualification from a prestigious provider with a reputation for quality.

Your attendance and assessment requirements will vary depending on which units you have already completed as part of TAE40110. Assessment will include in-class activities and written tasks to be completed outside of class time.

Credit Transfer

Credit Transfer is a process used to recognise qualifications and Statements of Attainment issued by any other RTO or TAFE. If you have successfully completed any of the units in the course in which you are enrolling, or their equivalent, you may be eligible for credit transfer. Where credit transfer is granted you will be considered to have already successfully completed the unit(s), and will not have to participate in training or assessment activities for that unit(s). In determining where credit transfer may be granted, MSA Training and Professional Development must be confident of the currency of the applicant’s knowledge. In fields where practice/technology is changing rapidly, credit transfer may not be granted where knowledge of unit(s) has dated.
MSA Training and Professional Development will recognise AQF qualifications and Statements of Attainment issued by any RTO.

To apply for a credit transfer, please complete the Application for credit transfer form and email it to msa-monashtraining@monash.edu

Course Structure

We have structured this upgrade program to run over 3 classroom-based sessions at our Clayton campus. Our TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, and the associated upgrade program, are not available online. We believe a classroom environment is more engaging and supportive and is the best model for this course. It will provide you with the opportunity to network with other professionals, learn from your peers, ask questions, collaborate and share ideas in a dynamic environment.
