CSC40122 Certificate IV in Correctional Practice

About Course

Course Units

The CSC40122 Certificate IV in Correctional Practice is an important qualification that reflects the role of individuals employed in the supervision and management of offenders and detainees, in the correctional services sector.  It is a qualification that assists with career advancement, personal and professional development, and a more comprehensive understanding of correctional roles.

The general qualification covers the competencies allowing experienced staff to reflect advanced practice and greater team leadership roles.

RAM Training Services offers this qualification through a Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) process, whereby your existing skills and experience are recognised and mapped to the requirements of the training package, to achieve your certificate – rather than through the completion of assessments or exams.  This process may look different for each individual applicant.

Those wishing to obtain this qualification through RAM’s RPL process, will already be employed in the supervision and management of offenders and detainees in the criminal justice system, or within immigration detention centres, wishing to further their career opportunities and gain recognition for the skills and experience they have gained.

Please see the Delivery Method tab for more information on the RPL process.

RAM offers the CSC40122 Certificate IV in Correctional Practice through a Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) program.  You will be required to gather sufficient documentation and evidence, that demonstrates that you have the necessary and relevant skills, knowledge and experience, in order to achieve this qualification.  Some of this evidence may include:

  • 3rd party reports from supervisors
  • Resume
  • Job description
  • Payslips or letter of employment

I recently pursued my Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (TAE40116) through RAM Training Services and was thoroughly impressed by their professional approach. Their utilization of webinars made learning engaging and interactive, bridging the gap often found in online education. The seasoned instructors were adept at elucidating complex concepts, making the learning journey both enlightening and enjoyable. Moreover, the convenience and flexibility of webinar sessions accommodated my schedule perfectly. The course not only honed my vocational training skills but also instilled a deeper understanding of the subject matter, preparing me for real-world applications. Highly recommend RAM Training Services for anyone looking to elevate their training and assessment expertise.

I know some people struggle to complete the TAE 40116. It can be quite involved. Doing RAM's 5 day intensive though helped me understand what needed to be done and set me up to be able to complete the course quickly. A word of advice: If you study this way complete the 'homework' immediately after the intensive (in the evening after each day) while the learning is fresh in your mind. If you leave it too long you will forget what to do which will make it more onerous to complete. It makes for a very busy week but you can break the back of the workload very quickly. Thanks RAM for providing the support needed to complete the TAE quickly.
