QUALITY DOES NOT COST - IT PAYS
The end of semester is almost upon us. This year we will close the office from 16/12/2016 until 9/1/2017.
However, within that time urgent emails may be monitored and SMS may be directed to 0407 292 661.
From 2/1/2017 there may be limited office services while we prepare for the new semester that officially begins on 9/1/2017.
We ask you to respect our only real holiday in a busy working year unless calling with seasons greetings,
For this year's Christmas flower I have chosen the Australian Native Christmas Bush. In a mad world where the shopping malls play songs about snow, sleighs and reindeer, it is nice to be reminded that we have our own traditions, flowers, grass in the paddocks that is brown and of course our wonderful beaches and BBQs.
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah or Happy Holidays (please insert your favourite greeting if I have not listed it). May you all have a wonderul and prosperous New Year.

Don't Hold Back!
Six months on and nobody has been approved to deliver the TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment. The backlog is so great that many RTOs have held back their application for a few months hoping the backlog will clear. HBTA is one of them.
Applicants keep asking me about the need to 'upgrade' to the new qualification. It is not mandatory to do so as the Standards for RTOs (SRTO) 2015 state that trainers need TAE40110 or its successor. Therefore, you have until October 2017 to obtain TAE40110 and you can choose to add to this TAEASS502A and TAELLN411 in the electives.
What this means is that when the TAE40116 is finally launched, or the AISC finally decided that trainers and assessor must attain TAEASS502 and TAELLN411, those who included TAEASS502A and TAELLN411 in their TAE40110 are covered.
If you already have the TAE40110 you can choose to undertake the two new units as standalones, and we can delivery this through an enrolment into a TAE50216 if you want TAEASS502.
It sounds complicated but really is not. We can work out the best option for you.
If you have been a trainer and assessor for some time, then a smart thing to do would be to go for one or both of the Diplomas (or you can do this by direct entry and complete the workplace practicum). If you have a Diploma, you do not neet to acquire a TAE40110 or its successor.
There is no pre-requisite for entry into the Diplomas and the course will cover the same skills and knowledge as the Certificate IV embedded in its content.
Therefore, if you are really looking for an 'upgrade' and not an 'update', the Diploma is the smart way to go!
It has been brought to my attention that a person purporting to be working for SE Training has been issuing Statements of Attainment for SITX0HS002A and SITXFS001A (both food safety units that have never been on the RTO scope).
These statements were issued in 2012. Sea Eagle Training ceased to be an RTO in 2004, although HBTA retained the original RTO number.
The statements are signed by a third party and only I am authorised to sign qualifications on behalf of the RTO which is now HBTA.
The Statements are issued on cheap paper that can be purchased in any stationers, not our marbled green card which is embossed with the HBTA logo and laminated. The bogus qualifications show the Sea Eagle cameo illustration.
If you come across one of these Statements of Attainment, please be aware that they are easily identified as frauds. If in doubt, please send me copies so that appropriate actions can be taken.
Yes, I know the new TAE came out just as I finished writing the Interactive learning version of the Double Diplomas in TAE/TDD (bad timing but good timing also). This is available now with the Workshop version to be released over the weekend. It has been a long time coming due to family health issues and sheer work overload with so many qualifications needing a makeover.
The good news is that TAE50216 is on Scope and it can be taken in conjunction with TAE50111 or as a stand alone course. The double diploma course is designed to give you maximum credit transfer into TAE50116 when this becomes available.
Don't delay in signing up for TAE courses because the length of our courses, and the way they are designed, means they can quickly be updated as we go as soon as the Additions to Scope are through. This may take a while as there are over 700 providers who may be putting in applications.
The difference between the old Diplomas and the new are not huge and if you have the TAELLN401A or TAELLN411 it only requires some gap training to take it up to the TAELLLN501 level because of the commonality of content.
Most other units are stated as equivalent, so the transition (I prefer to think about it as morphing) can be largely covered by credit transfer plus evidence of PD and currency.
