Assessment tool

Version 1.0
Issue Date: December 2018


This unit of competency specifies the outcomes required to plan resource recovery operations. The unit covers identifying resource recovery needs including auditing waste, conducting a feasibility assessment, and consulting with stakeholders. The unit requires a detailed resource recovery strategy to be planned and documented including marketing and implementation strategies. It requires the ability to conduct detailed planning activities which incorporate goals and targets, evaluation measures, and cost-benefit analyses to ensure the viability of the resource recovery operation.

The unit supports those who work in a management role within a waste management environment.

No licensing, legislative, regulatory, or certification requirements apply to this unit of competency at the time of endorsement.

You may want to include more information here about the target group and the purpose of the assessments (eg formative, summative, recognition)
