Qualification Description

The PUA40419 Certificate IV in Public Safety (Biosecurity Emergency Response Leadership) provides individuals with the skills and knowledge to perform a leadership role in a biosecurity emergency response. Pests and diseases entering, emerging, establishing or spreading in Australia pose a risk to the economy, environment and community. Biosecurity involves the mitigation and management of these risks.

The role of a biosecurity emergency response leader is to supervise, direct and oversee teams undertaking assigned actions within a response to an animal, plant, aquatic, environmental or other biosecurity threat. Biosecurity emergency response leader's duties may include leading field teams undertaking activities such as investigations, movement controls or infected premises operations and/or leading teams within an operations centre (the term operations centre is used in accordance with the Biosecurity Incident Management System).

This qualification includes the units of competency required by biosecurity emergency response leaders to direct and oversee teams of biosecurity emergency responders, ensuring all team activities safely, effectively and efficiently implement the relevant aspects of the incident action plan. The range of activities may include coordination of, and contribution to, planning and operational strategy development and logistics relevant to response activities, ensuring appropriate information management, communication with relevant stakeholders and managing the human resource aspects of the team.

Individuals will demonstrate autonomy and judgement in known or changing contexts within established parameters.

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