Modification History

Release 1. Supersedes and is equivalent to MSS50111 Diploma of Sustainable Operations.

Qualification Description

The MSS50116 Diploma of Sustainable Operations specifies the competencies required to work in a technical, supervisory or operational role in sustainability in an organisation and/or its value chain (e.g. suppliers of goods or services, or customers). The qualification has been developed with manufacturing operations as a focus. However, because of the range of organisations in a typical manufacturing value chain it may also be applied to other types of organisations.

This qualification provides the skills needed to measure current sustainability performance and to establish processes for improved sustainability performance within organisations. It complements but does not duplicate qualifications supplying technical skills related to engineering, chemical, environmental and other technical analyses that may be needed for improving sustainability. Where these skills are required appropriate qualifications from other Training Packages, such as the MEM05 Metal and Engineering, PMA Chemical, Hydrocarbons and Refining and MSM Manufacturing Training Packages, should be considered.

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 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 be awarded the MSS50116 Diploma of Sustainable Operations, competency must be achieved in twenty (20)  units of competency.

  • five (5)  core units of competency
  • fifteen (15)  elective units of competency, as specified below:
  • a minimum of seven (7)  units from Group A
  • a minimum of three (3)  units from Group B
  • the balance of units, to a maximum of five (5) , may be selected from:

  • Group C elective units, listed below

A maximum of four (4) Group C  elective units may be selected from this Training Package, other endorsed Training Packages and accredited courses, where those units are available at Diploma level. Units chosen should be relevant to the workplace and would normally be drawn from the appropriate sector Training Package, or possibly the Business Services Training Package.
