Clustered Approach 

Southern Cross is renowned for our clustered approach to Certificate IV Training and Assessment courses. This has allowed us to divide our TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment program into the following groupings 

 Training Design & Delivery 
TAEDEL401 Plan, Organise and Deliver Group Based  Learning (core)
BSBCMM401   Make a Presentation (elective)
  Training Packages / Accredited Course Design
TAEDES402 Use Training Packages and Accredited Courses to Meet Client Needs (core)
TAEDES401 Design and Develop Learning Programs (core)

This ‘holistic’ structure of our TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment course ensures that you can study at a good pace, not cluttered up by the un-necessary duplication common in courses which treat each of the 10 units separately!
