Additional qualification advice 

This qualification applies to all Aboriginal-sites workers. Cultural beliefs and practices vary across locations and communities however and in some situations non-Aboriginal learners may not be able to access the cultural knowledge and/or materials required to achieve competency in some of the core cultural units. This applies when restrictions are applied to non-Aboriginal people gaining access to cultural knowledge, material or sites. In these situations the Registered Training Organisation will have to make alternative arrangements for learners that are still consistent with delivery and assessment requirements.

Note : The delivery and assessment against core cultural units must comply with Community protocols and be carried out in consultation with and in participation with Traditional Owners and/or Elders and custodians of that specific Country.

There are eleven units of competency which require

  • delivery and assessment in accordance with Aboriginal cultural protocols, cultural knowledge copyright considerations and Aboriginal lore/law restrictions, and
  • an appropriate cultural authority’s involvement and participation in the training and assessment task. [This may be a Traditional Owner and/or Cultural Manager and/or Cultural Knowledge holder and/or Custodian.]

It is essential that this requirement be respected and implemented in the delivery and assessment of these units to ensure cultural integrity in the qualification is maintained and to guarantee cultural authenticity and quality control around the delivery of training and assessment for Aboriginal-sites workers.

There are further details in the Evidence Guide for these units.

Licensing/Regulatory Information

There is no direct link between this qualification and licensing, legislative and/or regulatory requirements.

Entry Requirements
