Qualification Description

The PUA50219 Diploma of Public Safety (Biosecurity Emergency Response Management) provides individuals with the skills and knowledge to manage 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 manager is to manage multiple teams to develop and carry out an appropriate response to an animal, plant, aquatic, environmental or other biosecurity threat. Biosecurity emergency response manager’s duties may include directing and managing multiple teams undertaking coordinated biosecurity response functions such as field operations, planning, logistics, public information and/or finance and administration.

This qualification includes the units of competency required by biosecurity emergency response managers to manage multiple teams of biosecurity emergency responders, whilst ensuring all response activities are safely, effectively and efficiently implemented to meet all relevant aspects of the incident action plan. The range of activities may include formulating strategic plans, undertaking multi-organisation liaison and high level communication activities, overseeing complex resource coordination activities and taking overarching responsibility for safety, financial and human resource management within the relevant aspects of the role.

Individuals will demonstrate a high degree of autonomy, judgement and management responsibility in complex and changing contexts within broad but established parameters.

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