Unique Student Identifier (USI) Mandatory from 1 January 2015
From 1 January 2015, all students undertaking Nationally Recognised training in Australia will need to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI). Once you have your USI, you can use it throughout your life, to keep a centralised online record of all your Nationally Recognised training. Whether you're studying at TAFE, a private training organisation, completing a certificate or diploma course, apprenticeship or skill set - you'll need a USI.
The BSB41415 Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety is offered via a Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) option for those who have significant experience in creating a safe workplace environment and would like to have them formally recognised.
This qualification is suitable for people working in a Work Health and Safety (WHS) role who work to provide leadership and guidance to others and have some limited responsibility for the output of others.
The qualification reflects the role of workers who apply a broad knowledge base and well developed skills in a wide variety of contexts and may include coordinators, advisors and facilitators.
What is required to gain the qualification
To gain this qualification you will be required to complete 12 assessment tools and submit evidence demonstrating your application of skills and knowledge as aligned to the 12 units of competency. Should you not be able to meet all of the competency requirements, you may be required to attend gap training.
Participants have up to 2 years to complete the RPL assessment requirements of the qualification. This time frame will vary for each individual depending on their existing level of skills and knowledge.
AIM WA recommends regular attendance on the monthly Free Qualification Support Workshops while completing the RPL assessment requirements.
