Application

This unit of competency specifies the skills and knowledge required to develop, plan and implement systems designed to manage environmental practices and processes in either residential or commercial projects.

It includes establishing soundly based environmental management systems and strategic problem solving necessary to produce environmental outcomes that meet the legislative requirements of statutory authorities.

This unit of competency applies to builders, project managers and related construction industry professionals who use their technical and communication skills to analyse, plan, design and evaluate approaches to unpredictable problems and are responsible for managing environmental practices and processes on building or construction projects.
