The Sustainability Industry Reference Committee (IRC) supported by IBSA Manufacturing, reviewed the MSS Sustainability Training Package. The Case for Change was approved by the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) in June 2021.

This project was approved by the AISC at their October meeting and has received ministerial endorsement. The training package components are expected to be available on the National VET Register in the near future.


Sustainability is a developing and dynamic field of practice as evidenced by recent changes in Australian legislation, bans on export of waste and the global shift towards a circular economy. The sustainability project revised the Sustainable Operations and Environmental Monitoring and Technology qualifications and units of competency to ensure they are current and comprehensive.  Skills for the Circular Economy was also addressed within units of competency.
