The Process Manufacturing, Recreational Vehicle and Laboratory Industry Reference Committee, supported by IBSA Manufacturing, reviewed qualifications and units of competency in the MSL Laboratory Operations Training Package.  The Case for Change was been approved by the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) in November 2021.

This work was undertaken to update the training products to improve structure and content for Laboratory Operations qualifications and units of competency. Due to emerging industry needs, the project will consider the incorporation of new units of competency in surgical cut-up.

Five qualifications were reviewed and redeveloped to better align with job role requirements. Several native units of competency were also updated to ensure they reflect workplace knowledge and skill needs in current and emerging techniques, technologies, automated laboratory equipment and standards. Furthermore, several skill sets were also developed for the sector.
