The validation round of consultation for this project was conducted 22 June – 7 July 2020. Feedback received from industry and other stakeholders throughout the project consultation processes has been reviewed and the units and qualifications updated accordingly. 

Thank you to all who contributed!

Changes to the qualifications 

The following qualifications have been updated with small changes to the packaging arrangements, and with entry requirements added to the Diploma and Advanced Diploma of Surveying:

  • CPP20120 Certificate II in Surveying and Spatial Information Services
  • CPP30220 Certificate III in Surveying and Spatial Information Services
  • CPP50120 Diploma of Surveying
  • CPP50220 Diploma of Spatial Information Services
  • CPP60120 Advanced Diploma of Surveying.

The CPP41720 Certificate IV in Surveying and Spatial Information Services is a new qualification developed from the integration of the superseded Certificate IV in Surveying and superseded Certificate IV in Spatial Information Services.  It has specialist elective streams and the packaging rules enable an outcome in either surveying or spatial information services recognised on the testamur as:

Certificate IV in Surveying and Spatial Information Services (Surveying), or 

Certificate IV in Surveying and Spatial Information Services (Spatial Information).

Changes to the units

In line with the Training Package Products Policy, units have been assigned a new alpha code, CPPSSI. The ‘SSI’ represents Surveying and Spatial Information. The titles of 15 units have been adjusted to better reflect the unit intent and outcomes. 

The 57 surveying and spatial units of competency units have been edited for clarity.  Repetition of content across the Performance Criteria, Foundation Skills and Performance Evidence has been evaluated and reduced in all units. The units have been improved based on feedback received and now better reflect current industry skills, knowledge and work practices.

To remove duplication across units, CPPSIS4027 Organise surveying field services and CPPSIS4032 Conduct field surveying operations have been merged to create CPPSSI4032 Plan and conduct field surveying operations

Seven units have been recommended for deletion due to low enrolments for an extended time. (These can be found in the mapping included in the Case for Endorsement.) 

Next steps

The units and qualifications are now going into the quality assurance phase prior to sign off by the Property Services Industry Reference Committee. Materials will then be circulated to the State Training Authorities for their approval.

It is anticipated that the Case for Endorsement Surveying and Spatial will be submitted at the end of August for consideration by the Australian Industry Skills Council at its meeting 13 October 2020.
