Employability Skills Summary

Employability Skills Summary for PUA20601 Certificate II in Public Safety  (Firefighting and Emergency Operations )

Employability Skills are part of a unit of competency.

Employability Skills statements from a selection of units of competency from the PUA20601 Certificate II in Public Safety (Firefighting and Emergency Operations) have been reproduced in the table below.

This table provides an example of Employability Skills for the qualification because Employability Skills within a qualification will vary depending on the qualification packaging options.

Public Safety qualifications have core units (which must be achieved) and elective units (where there is a choice of units which must be achieved) so different Employability Skills Summaries are possible within the one qualification, depending on the package of core units and chosen elective units.

The Employability Skills within a qualification may vary depending on qualification packaging options.

These Employability Skills may be obtained by the completion of this qualification but in no way reflect skills that may apply to any particular position within a fire service.
