Australian Qualifications Framework volume of learning for a Certificate IV qualification^
0.5 – 2 years (600 – 2400 hours)
Hours may be reduced depending on:

shorter-duration specialist qualifications that build on existing skills and knowledge
longer-duration qualifications that are designed as entry-level requirements for specific work roles.
Understanding the amount of training required
The AQF ‘volume of learning’ range is considered to be a starting point for RTOs determining the ‘amount of training’ required to deliver a particular qualification.
In a competency-based training environment, which is centred on demonstrated competence against industry-defined standards of performance rather than strict course durations, students aren’t required to study for a specified number of weeks or months. Competency-based training is the concept that individuals learn at different rates as well as through different modes and different environments and that the skills and knowledge that a student has acquired previously are able to be formally recognised.
