Word from the field indicates that some CFA members are having difficulty obtaining copies of their certificates and qualifications. Transition to the new qualification requires applicants to produce either originals or certified copies of qualification certificates and statements of attainment in order to meet the evidence requirements for RPL. If you cannot find the required documentation you should in the first instance contact the appropriate training provider (RTO).
CFA has taken an initiative to make access to this RPL information easier for those members who are finding it difficult to either find or produce evidence of their qualifications.
While some CFA members obtained their previous training and assessment qualifications within CFA, other members obtained their qualifications from an external Recognised Training Organisation (RTO).
In the past Melbourne University Training Services Unit was a significant provider of the trainer and assessor programs for CFA. This Melbourne University Unit was disbanded quite a few years ago and this has caused some difficulties for members trying to obtain copies of “statements of attainment” and qualifications.
CFA has asked Melbourne University to provide access to results for CFA members that completed training and assessment units and qualifications that may not have had the results recorded on TRAIN and cannot produce relevant certificates.
Melbourne University (MU) has agreed to access its archives and retrieve records of CFA members once CFA provides a list of names with MU student numbers.
This support from MU will, provide members with the necessary copies of their “statements of attainment” and qualifications as required. .
Not everybody needs to hold the new qualification so remember to have a look at the “Who can train and assess?” poster to check if you need to make the transition to TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training & Assessment before the 1st July 2013.
CFA members who are making application for Transition to TAE40110 RPL’s should contact their Managers Training and Development as soon as possible, or John Bell at Operational Training and Volunteerism on 9262 8992.
