Skills Sets Training

 

Skills sets are defined as single units of competency, or combination of units of competency from an endorsed training package, which link to a license or regulatory requirements, or defined industry need.

It is important to note that most skills sets included in the Community or Business Services Training Package are designed to build on a relevant qualification to enable the candidate to undertake work in the addressed skills set.

 It is important to note that these skill sets have been endorsed by industry as appropriate for people who hold a relevant qualification to enable the candidate to undertake work in the area addressed by the skill set.

Skills sets do not replace qualifications as the foundation for undertaking work in the community services or business sector. They enable a qualified worker to move laterally into the work areas addressed by the skill set to broaden their skill base in relation to the services they provide.

All the skill sets offered are at a Certificate IV or Diploma Level.
