Feedback closing Monday 8 March 2021.
The Technical Advisory Committees (TACs) for the Supply Chain Operations – Certificates I and IV and Driving Operations projects have drafted materials and would like your feedback.
Supply Chain Operations – Certificates I and IV – Qualifications in Logistics and Warehouse Operations at the Certificate I and IV levels have been amalgamated into two qualifications to address current and future skills needs of entry-level workers and team leaders/supervisors respectively. The Certificate IV in Transport Scheduling has been converted into a stream within the new Certificate IV qualification. These changes enable flexible career pathways and workforce mobility across multiple sectors of the Transport and Logistics industry.
Driving Operations – The TAC has reviewed and updated Certificate II, III and IV in Driving Operations qualifications and 87 associated Units of Competency to incorporate recent technology advancements and align with applicable regulatory requirements. These changes are aimed at enhancing the professionalism and safety levels of Australian heavy vehicle drivers.
Two new Units of Competency relating to in-vehicle technology and alpine driving have been developed to address priority skill needs.
The Certificate III in Driving Operations and the Certificate III in Waste Driving Operations have been amalgamated into a single qualification to create a flexible career pathway for new and existing heavy vehicle drivers and to enable workforce mobility.
The TAC has also requested industry feedback on the structure of the qualifications (whether specialist elective groups should be used or not) and advice on which units should remain (or not) in qualifications, specifically general electives.
