Employability Skills statements from a selection of units of competency from the PUA40301 Certificate IV in Public Safety (Firefighting Supervision) have been reproduced in the table below.
This table provides an example of Employability Skills for the qualification because Employability Skills within a qualification will vary depending on the qualification packaging options.
