Additional Qualification advice

Units selected from other Training Packages must be relevant to the work outcome, local industry requirements and the Qualification level.

Some Units imported into this Qualification from the SIR07 Retail Services Training Package require a prerequisite Unit in food safety from the source Training Package. This prerequisite Unit has not been imported as it duplicates food safety Units already required as core skills within the Food Processing Training Package Qualifications. If selecting this Unit, the RTO should facilitate recognition of the FDF Units as a suitable prerequisite Unit alternative.

Note: AgriFood Skills Australia expects that the design of any training delivery and assessment program to support the achievement of this Qualification is based on:

  • the context required by the industry and/or enterprise
  • a holistic and integrated training delivery and assessment plan that identifies learning activities and evidence required
  • flexible delivery options including on-the-job and work-based training that support the development of competency.
