The PUA30919 Certificate III in Public Safety (Biosecurity Emergency Response Operations) provides individuals with the skills and knowledge to work in a biosecurity emergency response. Pests and diseases entering, emerging, establishing or spreading in Australia pose a risk to the economy, environment and community. Biosecurity involves the mitigation and management of these risks.
The role of a biosecurity emergency responder is to carry out actions within a biosecurity emergency response to an animal, plant, aquatic, environmental or other biosecurity threat. Biosecurity emergency responder's duties may include activities in the field and/or working in an operations centre (the term operations centre is used in accordance with the Biosecurity Incident Management System).
This qualification includes the units of competency required by biosecurity emergency responders to work safely and effectively as part of a response team. The range of activities that may be performed include contributing to response planning, implementing disease or pest surveillance and associated sampling protocols, ensuring effective quarantine and movement controls and undertaking disease or pest control procedures at infected premises.
Individuals will demonstrate autonomy and judgement whilst following instructions in known and stable contexts within established parameters.
No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this qualification at the time of publication.
