Project: Waste Management

Stage 3

On behalf of the Property Services IRC, Artibus Innovation is reviewing and developing the following training package components:

  • 4 qualifications:
    • CPP30711 Certificate III in Waste Management
    • CPP40911 Certificate IV in Waste Management
    • [for deletion] CPP20411 Certificate II in Waste Management
    • [for deletion] CPP50811 Diploma of Waste Management
  • 42 units of competency.

The final drafts of the Certificate III in Waste Management, Certificate IV in Waste Management and the 21 waste management units of competency are now available for validation. We are seeking confirmation that the units and qualifications reflect current industry skills, knowledge and work practices. 

The feedback received in the first round of consultation, 17 June - 1 July 2019, has been analysed and considered with assistance from the Technical Advisory Group (TAG). Refinements have been made to the units to provide the detail sought by industry and better express intended actions and work outcomes. 

The assessment requirements and the performance and knowledge evidence has been strengthened to support enhanced quality of training and assessment. 

The Waste Management Mapping document gives an overview of changes made to the units, including units recommended for removal. 

Final consultation 

The draft documents are available below for final validation. Feedback opportunity was open between 12 August – 26 August 2019 (COB).
