Great trainers are important components of a strong training industry. If you have skills and experience to share and an interest in passing your knowledge on to others, then training could be a rewarding new career path for you.
Gaining industry experience together with your training qualification is a good start towards becoming an RTO/TAFE Assessor, Corporate Trainer or even in starting your own training company. Developing your expertise and completing the required qualification is another way to branch out as a professional.
What do I need to do?
To deliver training and assessment in vocational education, you will need to complete TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (or equivalent). This qualification provides students with a specialised set of skills required to deliver and assess vocational qualifications. This qualification is the minimum requirement for any vocational training role in Australia.
Also, you need to hold the vocational competencies relevant to the qualification that you are delivering. It means, if you are providing training and assessment in a business, you need to hold qualifications in business yourself.
You must have current industry skills that directly relate to the qualifications you train and assess, and you must have current knowledge and skills in vocational training and learning that informs the services you deliver.
