Why is the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment called "The TAE"?
"The TAE" is actually a nickname. The certificate is called the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment in both the 2004 and the 2010 versions, but they have different code numbers.
In 2010, the name of the training package changed from TAA04 to TAE10. The prefix of the training package determines the prefix of the qualification code, so the qualification code was also changed.
The prefix of the old 2004 version was TAA and the prefix of the new version was TAE, so it was a good way to differentiate between new and old versions.
