Yachting Australia as a Registered Training Organisation (RTO)
Yachting Australia is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO). This allows Yachting Australia to deliver training, conduct assessments and issue nationally recognised certification for approved 'units of competence'.
Yachting Australia is currently able to deliver training, conduct assessments and issue statements of attainment for some units within the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (TAE40110) qualification. Yachting Australia has the following units within its scope:
- TAEDEL301A- Provide work skill instruction
- TAEASS401B - Plan assessment activities and processes
- TAEASS402B - Assess competence
- TAEASS403B- Participate in assessment validation
The Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (TAE40110) has 7 core units and 3 elective units, thus Yachting Australia is able to issue a partial qualification. This is known as a Statement of Attainment. These four units collectively form the cluster known as Enterprise Trainer and Assessor Skill Set.
Two pathways currently exist for anyone wanting to obtain this skill set. These are:
- Recognition of Prior Learning
- Attending two courses relating to the training and assessment of Yachting Australia Instructors.
Currently, several maritime authorities recognise Yachting Australia certificates eg Powerboat Handling Certificate as meeting the requirements for a recreational powerboat licence. However, increasingly around Australia, State Maritime Authorities are requiring that assessment outcomes for licencing purposes (eg powerboat licencing), are conducted by RTOs. In order for Yachting Australia Training Centres and their recognised Instructors to continue to be able to deliver training and conduct assessments that can be used by students to gain their powerboat licence there was a need to meet the requirements set by those external bodies (eg the state maritime authorities).
For current Yachting Australia Instructors who wish to continue recognition of their training and assessments for licencing purposes it is expected that they will undertake RPL. For current Yachting Australia Instructors (voluntary or paid) make sure you have a look at the Self Assessment Tool as you may be currently demonstrating the outcomes in your workplace.
If you are seeking recognition for your training and assessment by the Yachting Australia RTO, once you have achieved the four units of competence you will be required to submit an application to Yachting Australia
In summary, if you wish to deliver training and conduct assessments where an external body (eg state maritime authority) requires training to be conducted by an RTO you will need to achieve the four units of competence in the Yachting Australia RTO scope of registration. If you wish to deliver any other training from the National Training Program you are not required to achieve these units of competence however you can if you want to.
