Diploma of Sustainable Operations
This qualification provides the skills and knowledge required to work in a technical, supervisory or operational role in sustainability in an organisation and/or itâ€™s value chain (e.g. suppliers of goods or services, or customers). The qualification has been developed with manufacturing operations as a focus. However, because of the range of organisations in a typical manufacturing value chain it may also be applied to other types of organisations.
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.
