The MSS40116 Certificate IV in Sustainable Operations specifies the competencies required to identify, implement and report on sustainability related initiatives within a section of an enterprise, such as a defined work area, work team or stage of production. It may also apply to a small or medium enterprise. It includes assisting organisations to meet their obligations under sustainability related regulatory arrangements, government or similar incentives or other initiatives that apply to the employee’s area of operation.
This qualification provides the skills needed to measure current sustainability performance and to establish processes for improved sustainability performance within small and medium enterprises as well as sections or stages of production in larger organisations. It complements but does not duplicate qualifications supplying production, maintenance, logistics or other technical skills to industry. Where these skills are required appropriate qualifications from Manufacturing Skills Australia (MSA) and other Industry Skill Council (ISC) Training Packages should be considered.
The qualification applies where an overview of sustainability related issues is required without the detailed technical underpinning skills, such as resource (e.g. water and carbon) mapping along a value chain, or mass balancing across a site or large enterprise. Where these skills are require the MSS50116 Diploma of Sustainable Operations should be considered.
This qualification does not supply operational or technical skills. Most enterprises will expect technical skills relevant to their operations or equivalent vocational experience and for this reason the qualification is unlikely to be suitable for direct entry from school.
No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this qualification at the time of publication.
