12 units of competency are required to complete the qualification consisting of 6 core units and 6 elective units as shown in the sample program below. The Program is delivered over 3-6 months (depending on learner experience and existing qualifications) using a combination of face-to-face sessions, role plays/simulations, practical demonstrations, and self-directed learning (that may include online learning, readings, workplace activities, work related projects). Learner Guides and Assessments are provided to all learners.
It is expected that applicants will have access to a workplace to complete their practical activities. Practical elements may also be undertaken using simulated activities.
