Modification History

Release 1. Supersedes and is equivalent to MSS50218 Diploma of Environmental Monitoring and Technology.

Qualification code changed. Description changed. Packaging rules changed. Elective banks changed. Unit codes and titles updated.

Qualification Description

This qualification specifies the competencies required to apply a range of methods and technologies to conduct environmental sampling, testing and monitoring in most industry sectors, and to assist environmental scientists, engineers and planners with site assessment, minimising environmental impacts of processes and remediation and/or rehabilitation of sites.

This qualification applies to environmental officers, environmental protection officers, environmental compliance officers, environmental technicians and similar personnel typically employed by enterprises, service providers, non-government organisations or Commonwealth, state/territory and local governments.

These personnel often work with environmental scientists, engineers, planners and community groups to manage and conserve natural systems and resources, minimise pollution, remediate and/or rehabilitate sites and trial practical strategies to protect and improve ecosystems. Some personnel may be more involved with external inspection and auditing of enterprises and negotiating appropriate responses to instances of non-compliance.

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