This qualification provides a mixture of introductory and more advanced skills
in competitive systems and practices. The qualification packaging has been
developed on an assumption that competency will be developed through a
combination of on and off-the-job learning strategies.
This qualification provides the skills needed to improve efficiency in a
person's own work role or the efficiency of a team or work area. It complements
but does not duplicate qualifications supplying operational, production,
maintenance, logistics, administration or other technical skills to industry.
Where these skills are required appropriate qualifications from other Training
Packages should be considered.
The skills in this qualification are often known in industry under a variety of
titles many of which relate to manufacturing which is the origin of many
competitive systems and practices. The most common term is lean manufacturing.
However, other names for some of the system skills and techniques include agile
manufacturing, lean operations, six sigma, lean six sigma, and so on.
This qualification can apply to an individual applying competitive systems and
practices to their own work or where a person has responsibility for
facilitating the application of competitive systems and practices to a work area
or to the work of a team. The team may be a permanent, formally designated team
or be a project team implementing competitive systems and practices. For
application to individual work the qualification provides the opportunity to
gain a greater understanding and skill in competitive systems and practices than
is available in the MSS20312 Certificate II in Competitive Systems and Practices
This qualification provides competitive systems and practices skills that can be
applied in the following organisations and environments:
- manufacturing enterprises;
- mining and service organisations;
- office environments;
- organisations in a value
This qualification has no formal entry requirement.
However, it should be noted that this qualification is not intended to supply
operational or technical skills that are used in conjunction with competitive
systems and practices skills.
This qualification assumes that a learner has current or past work experience
where operational or technical skills have already been gained and a
supervisory, facilitation or similar level of responsibility exists. The
qualification is not suitable for direct entry from school.

Why study something again if you already have the skills and knowledge? Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is about helping you get your qualification faster and getting you to where you want to be!
Working with one of our RPL assessors we’ll review your life and work experiences as well as any previous study you may have done to confirm just what we can match up with your current course of study.
Note: Some short, licensing or compliance courses, eg Food Safety for Supervisors or First Aid are not granted RPL as demonstrated competency is required by regulatory authorities.
