The Certificate IV in Training and Assessment: The ACAS Approach
ACAS has produced its own materials to make the course less repetitive and more clearly structured. It does this by integrating all the requirements into one procedure that follows the order of what you do when teaching a unit.
ACAS does not always provide teaching practice, and students normally need existing teaching duties in a Registered Training Organizaton so you can use your real classes as the basis for completing the Certificate IV. This not only reduces fees, but also saves you from spending extra time teaching dummy classes.
The Certificate IV cannot be taught wholly on-line or by distance education; some class or tutor contact is necessary.Nevertheless, the ACAS web-based system is designed to:
- be easy to use and navigate,
- provide better information,
- integrate your learning with assessment,
- have a very practical assessment system,
- integrate effectively into the current protocols of the Australian Quality Training Framework for teaching in an Registered TrainingOrganisation.
