New Enterprise Training and Assessment course provides excellent opportunity for new trainers to kick off their career

In late 2020, Pinnacle Safety and Training launched a new online course called Enterprise Trainer and Assessor Skill Set. This course is for:

  • Trainers and assessors who deliver non accredited training
  • Trainers and assessors who work with other trainers in delivering nationally recognised training (for example under supervision)
  • Enterprise trainers and assessors working in an enterprise RTO or in an enterprise that works together with an RTO in an auspicing arrangement (i.e. a business with an internal RTO or one that has a partnership with an external RTO).

How does this course differ from the Certificate IV Training and Assessment (TAE)?

All four units in this skill set are included in the ten units required in the full Certificate IV. So once complete, you’re almost halfway to getting the full qualification. This course can stand alone or be used as a gateway to the full Certificate IV TAE qualification.

What are the benefits of doing this course?

This course is cheaper, quicker and easier than the full Certificate IV program. And once completed, you can start training under supervision, and then complete the rest of the Cert IV at your own pace (either in-person or online). The fact that you can then work in a real training environment means you’ll have access to things that make getting a Certificate IV much easier, such as real students to train and real trainer/assessor colleagues to collaborate with on things like validation.

This course is a great option for someone wanting to kick off their training career as soon as possible, without having to commit to the full Cert IV TAE program upfront.

In addition to this, the skill set is also suitable for those who are looking to provide on-the-job instruction in a workplace environment, conduct workplace assessments and skill audits, as well as coaching and mentoring of staff.

Raymond the trainer spoke very clearly (important) and was obviously very knowledgeable about confined space. He highlighted practical applications and really got the “personal safety” message across to the group. I have done these courses before, however I got more out of this due to the “SKILL” of the trainer to get the critical messages across.

The practical exercises were helpful in executing all the theory we had learnt during the morning session. Having three practical exercises is a good strategy as I was able to gain something from each one confined space entry (mistakes I made plus observing others under a little pressure).

A good one-day course which I would recommend.
