If you are a busy VET trainer or work at an RTO and don’t have time to attend professional development classes, then you need IBSA Academy.

IBSA Academy is an online centre dedicated to providing professional development courses to RTO staff and VET Practitioners. Built on an eLearning platform that can be accessed from any internet-enabled device, you can start our non-accredited courses when and where you choose.

Each course is 60 minutes long and you can stop the course at any point and pick up exactly where you left off later. Once a course is completed, you will receive a personalised certificate.

Recently, the Hon. Karen Andrews, Assistant Minister for Vocational Education and Skills, released an amendment to the training and assessment credential requirements in the Standards for RTOs 2015.

As of July 1st 2019, Trainers and Assessors will be required to have completed the following units to meet the new requirements: :

  • TAEASS502 Design and develop assessment tools, and the
  • TAELLN411 Address adult language, literacy and numeracy skills

If you need help in recognising your potential for RPL for TAEASS502 and/or the TAELLN411, IBSA Academy can help*.

The IBSA Academy team has designed two online self-evaluation resources for both units, which allows trainers and assessors to evaluate their skills, compile evidence and demonstrate competency.
