Application

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to develop and extend skills as a practising designer.

It applies to individuals who work as a designer, in any industry context, either independently or employed by an organisation.

Designers must continually refine, develop and evaluate their own conceptual and technical skills. Research, experimentation and collaboration are key factors in this process.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
