Australian Forensic Services is one of the 18 RTOs approved by ASQA to deliver the new TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment and TAE50116 Diploma of Vocational Education and Training.  AFS is the only Canberra-based non-government RTO to gain this approval.

On 29 June 2017 an amendment was made to the Standards for Registered Training Organisations 2015. This amendment has been made to reflect changes to the required credentials for trainers and assessors. In summary, some of the changes mean that by 1 April 2019 trainers will need to hold:

  • a diploma or higher level qualification in adult education; OR
  • TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment; OR
  • TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment and:
    • one of the following units:
      • TAELLN411 Address adult language, literacy and numeracy skills or its successor or
      • TAELLN401A Address adult language, literacy and numeracy skills
    • and one of the following units:
      • TAEASS502 Design and develop assessment tools or its successor or
      • TAEASS502A Design and develop assessment tools or
      • TAEASS502B Design and develop assessment tools.

There are also implications for validation activities. Trainers and assessors holding a TAE40110 qualification need to also hold the above additional unit requirements to participate in validation from 31 March 2019.

From 4 October 2017, no RTO will be allowed to enrol new students in the TAE40110.
