FAQ's

  • How long will it take me to complete my course?

    The Australian Qualifications Framework advises what they believe is a good indication of how long different courses should take.  These are called the Volume of Learning Indicators, and they suggest that a (full) Certificate 4 level qualification should take 600-1200 hours.

    In our experience, every person is different, and so the time it takes one person to complete is different to the next person.  This largely depends on each person’s experience, dedication to their studies, and their other personal commitments.

    Students will have up to 12 months to complete the TAE40116 course with RAM, however students may be able to complete within 6 months, dependent on their individual schedules and commitment to completing assessment tasks.

    Our suggested Volume of Learning for this qualification is 6 months – 18 months   (600 – 1800 hours).

  • What resources will I need for this course?

    You’ll need access to the internet, a computer/laptop with Microsoft Office, and a printer.

  • Do you give extensions for assessment deadlines?

    While we are confident that our students will be able to submit within their allocated timeframe of 12 months, and we provide extensive support to assist with this, there are occasions where our student’s personal circumstances may unavoidably cause delays for them. Due to regular updates to our assessment materials, as well as to training packages in general, if we are able to offer an extension, we are only able to extend due dates by 1 month at a time, should you require it. Please note, there is no guarantee that we will be able to offer an extension, but we are more than happy to do so where possible.

    The first extension is free of charge. Any further extensions requested, will incur a re-enrolment fee of between $395 and $595, dependent on whether a complete new set of course materials is required. In some cases, this may mean you will need to re-do parts, or all, of your assessment tasks using the new materials.

    We will check in with you regularly, once you have commenced, to make sure you’re progressing. And don’t forget to join (free) as many of our Live Q&A Webinars as you like – these are a great help to many of our students!

  • Can I still upgrade my TAA40104 or BSZ40198 qualification?

    Unfortunately not sorry!  These versions have both been superseded at least twice now, which means none of the units are equivalent to the new TAE40116.  You will need to complete the full course.

  • Is there funding available for the TAE course?

    If you are aged over 45 and looking to re-skill, the Australian Government, through its Skills and Training Incentive, is providing up to $2,200 (GST inclusive) to fund training to help mature age Australians to update their skills and remain in the workforce longer.

    You are eligible for the Incentive if you:

    • are aged 45–70
    • are an Australian citizen or permanent resident
    • are currently employed OR recently unemployed (within nine months) and not registered with an Australian Government employment services provider
    • have completed a Skills Checkpoint assessment that identified training opportunities through the Skills Checkpoint for Older Workers Program (Program).

    You can find out more information about the Incentive and the Program by:
