Statement of Attainment

These competencies from SIF08 Funeral Services Training Package meet industry requirements for ground maintenance personnel involved in grave digging.


Those working in a cemetery preparing, digging and backfilling graves.

This Skills Set targets those existing cemetery workers who currently fulfil a generalist grounds maintenance and labouring role, many of whom may have completed a Certificate II qualification in Horticulture (Parks and Gardens) and require specialist technical skills in safe gravedigging to allow them to operate as multi-skilled cemetery personnel.


These units provide credit towards a SIF30208 Certificate III in Gravedigging, Grounds and Maintenance. These competencies are drawn from the Certificate III in Gravedigging, Grounds and Maintenance, allowing those who achieve the Safe Gravedigging Skills Set to more readily complete a Certificate III qualification.
