Certificate IV Training and Assessment: Training options

 
 
Registered Training and Assessment Organisations

To be able to deliver and assess accredited training (training that results in a qualification such as the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment), training and assessment organisations need to be registered with their State Training Authority as a Registered Training and Assessment Organisation. As the training delivered under the New Apprenticeship Scheme is accredited, training providers need to be registered either as a private or public Registered Training and Assessment Organisation. A Registered Training and Assessment Organisation must be registered to deliver the qualification in the state or territory that the Training Contract is registered. This is done through a process called ‘mutual recognition’ if it is not in the Registered Training and Assessment Organisation’s home state or territory.
User Choice

Under the User Choice policy, an employer and an apprentice/trainee can choose a Registered Training and Assessment Organisation that has a User Choice contract with the respective State Training Authority. The User Choice provision allows the employer and the apprentice/trainee to choose whether the training will be on-the-job or off-the- job or a combination of both. User Choice arrangements allow the choice of a public or a private Registered Training and Assessment Organisation with whom the timing, location and nature of the training can be negotiated.

A list of these providers will be available from the state or territory Government website. The Registered Training and Assessment Organisation may be a public institute (e.g. a TAFE institute), or a private provider. Where a Registered Training and Assessment Organisation with a User Choice contract is chosen, funding is made available for the training of some apprentices/trainees through the state or territory Government.

User Choice does not extend to choosing a qualification for which the employer is not able to provide on-the-job training. The employer must offer on-the-job training and experience in the chosen qualification.

It also allows the employer and trainee to negotiate the training content within the limits of the packaging rules for the qualification required.
