Qualification Description

This qualification reflects the job of early-career foresters and forestry field officers with specialist roles in forest operations management and forest resource management.

Individuals with this qualification apply a broad range of advanced technical and management skills and forest knowledge to inform and contribute to forest management plans and manage forestry operations. This includes using industry-specific software, modelling and analysing forestry data and optimising forest management practice to improve production processes and wood flow outcomes.

At this level, individuals are expected to apply autonomy and judgement. They take responsibility for their own outputs at the workplace.

This qualification enables specialisations in:

  • Forest Operations Management or
  • Forest Resource Management.

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

Entry Requirements

There are no entry requirements for this qualification.

Packaging Rules

To achieve this qualification, competency must be demonstrated in:

  • 12 units of competency consisting of 12 elective units.

Elective units must ensure the integrity of the alignment between the qualification and Australian Qualification Framework (AQF) and contribute to a valid, industry-supported vocational outcome. Electives can be chosen to provide a general qualification or a qualification with a specialisation.
