How to apply for recognition of prior learning (RPL)
The CSDAA in partnership with Wodonga Tafe have produced two short informational videos to show how easy it is to apply for an RPL in Concrete Sawing and Drilling. The videos provide information for employers & employees on what is required to attain accreditation and competency.
Industry recognition within the sawing and drilling sector is important for all businesses.
The modules within the concrete sawing and drilling course will provide evidence of the competencies and training skills that will enhance the professional image and increase safety for employees and employers.
On successful completion of either the RPL or the full training course, the CSDAA will issue identification competency cards to all applicants. Having training standards that measure and assess competency is a valuable endorsement.
The CSDAA will continue to support all members and contractors across Australia; promoting the benefits of a skilled and competent workforce.

CSDAA CONGRATULATES INDUSTRY LEADERS
The CSDAA would like to thank and acknowledge the recent training achievements of ten industry leaders from the sawing and drilling industry from across Australia.
Congratulations to Alois Auer, Robert East, Jonathan Hart, Stephen Hourigan, Lance Knight, Greg Mahoney, Ian Morcus, Corry Schouten, Steven Varty, and Shane Worbey..
On the 4th April 2016 the second enrolment of candidates successfully completed and attained the training and assessment qualification Certificate IV- TAE40110.
This is an important milestone for the CSDAA training initiative and reaffirms our commitment to industry. Training & assessment is best served when delivered by experienced industry participants who are willing to share and work with the next generation of operators.
Phoebe Carroll from the RTO sent in a glowing reference and is a credit to the class overall.
“Just a quick email to let you know the group is all done and has left today with certificates in hand. You have an amazing bunch to get the ball rolling – they have worked very hard and have exceeded expectations- well done!”
The CSDAA encourages industry leaders with industry experience to attend and attain the necessary qualifications to deliver training & assessment.
To find out more information on what is involved in the certificate IV training course you can contact the CSDAA directly. Alternately you are welcome to contact any of the twenty new trainers and discuss their experience firsthand.
New Course in Concrete Sawing and Drilling
The CSDAA has developed the new Course in Concrete Sawing and Drilling. The accredited course has been designed specifically for those working in our industry to gain a nationally recognised qualification.
The implementation of the course will require qualified trainers and assessors to work with participants and assess their work, through a registered training organisation (RTO).
The sawing and drilling industry will soon require suitably qualified trainers/assessors nationally with a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment to facilitate this training. The role of a trainer is to provide instruction and assessment for participants undertaking this course. Trainers and assessors with extensive industry experience, and the ability to share knowledge and skills, plus role model positive behaviors will be the foundation of the training course.
If you would like to be considered for future positions and join the select few that are experts in delivering training for the concrete sawing & drilling industry, go to www.training.gov.au today to find out more. Or, contact the Secretary of the Association at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
Course Code: TAE 40110
Please note: The CSDAA has no input into the recruitment or selection of course trainers, the RTO conducts this process. This is only to advise that the positions will become available and some of the criteria that will need to be met.
