The Sustainability IRC, supported by IBSA Manufacturing, is preparing a review of the Sustainable Operations and Environmental Monitoring qualifications and units of competency within the MSS Sustainability Training Package. 

The draft Case for Change is now available for review until 5pm (AEST) on Wednesday 12 May 2021. 

Why we are reviewing it

The rationale for updating the training products is to investigate an improved structure and content for Sustainable Operations and Environmental Monitoring and Technology qualifications and units of competency. Furthermore, the project will consider the incorporation of circularity skills into existing units in response to legislative change in the ban on export waste and the global shift towards a circular economy.  

What we are reviewing

The draft Case for Change proposes to:  

  • review/redevelop four qualifications:  
    • MSS40118 – Certificate IV in Sustainable Operations
    • MSS50118 – Diploma of Sustainable Operations
    • MSS40218 – Certificate IV in Environmental Monitoring and Technology
    • MSS50218 – Diploma of Environmental Monitoring and Technology
  • review/redevelop 64 units of competency (25 in Sustainable Operations and in 39 Environmental Monitoring and Technology) 
  • develop five new units of competency focussed on the circular economy.
