Qualification Description

This qualification specifies the skills and knowledge required to identify, implement and report on sustainability related initiatives within a section of an enterprise, such as a defined work area, work team or stage of production. It may also apply to a small or medium enterprise. It applies to specialist roles, such as a sustainability officer or sustainability project assistant. The qualification also provides specialist sustainability competencies to technical, supervisory or operational employees who do not have whole of enterprise responsibilities. It includes assisting organisations to meet their obligations under sustainability related regulatory arrangements, government or similar incentives or other initiatives that apply to the employee’s area of operation.

This qualification has no formal entry requirement due to the wide variety of sustainability applications in industry. However, most enterprises will expect technical skills relevant to their operations or equivalent vocational experience and for this reason the qualification is unlikely to be suitable for direct entry from school.

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

Entry Requirements

This qualification has no formal entry requirement.
