As a Certificate IV course, the literacy requirements are significant. If you are not sure if you can manage the full Certificate you can begin your studies by doing a Skill Set. A Skill Set is a collection of two or more units of competency. You can then move on to the full course.

The Enterprise Trainer – Presenting Skill Set $450.00

The Enterprise Trainer and Assessor skill set $880.00

This is a good way to spread the cost of the course too. From here the Full Certificate will not be so daunting and theses payments will be deducted from the whole course cost.

If you are ready to go right now then your strong vocational skills will enable you to apply the new learning to your existing vocational skills base. People from all walks of life do this course and are successful when they complete the course requirements and reading satisfactorily.

Recognition of Prior Learning includes questions to confirm your knowledge and guidance in the provision of the necessary practical evidence. Training in the gaps in your knowledge and skills is extra.

How long will it take?

“Thanks for a great course. I had already studied an older version of the course but now it all makes sense. I’m glad I came to class.” Allen – Trainer, Bunbury

The course is self paced so you can work as hard as you like to finish. The volume of learning is such that 6 – 12 months is the norm for those with busy lifestyles. However Recognition of Prior Learning and being familiar with how vocational educational and training works in the workplace will help shorten the period you spend studying.

Amount of Training

We create an individual learning plan for you based on your goals, prior knowledge and work commitments. The time taken to complete the course varies enormously between students because of this. This is a substantial qualification that once successfully completed carries significant legal responsibilities. You will be responsible for training and assessing the next generation of workers. Their safety and skill level depends on you doing a good job.

Will I pass?

There is no guarantee with competency based training. It’s up to you. We will provide you with quality learning material, practice based face to face training, one to one coaching and contextualising to your future training role BUT you must do the reading, take feedback, research the internet and make a commitment to work consistently on your assessments. This partnership is generally successful and the results are good. When you get your Certificate you will be confident that you have the skills and knowledge to perform well as a Trainer/Assessor or Training Coordinator.
