Currently, 15 units of competency and 7 occupational specialisations have been developed which specifically link nationally recognised qualification streams to job roles in the industry. Round of one for public consultation for these units and specialisations has now closed. It is expected endorsement of the new units and qualification streams will occur late in 2020.
