Description
Employability Skills
Learning Outcomes and Application This unit describes the fundamental skills required to police roads in a safe and professional manner, including the ability to apply road safety principles, control traffic, drive safely and conduct initial crash investigations.This unit applies to those working in a policing environment, typically in a general duties role.The skills and knowledge described in this unit must be carried out within the legislative, regulatory and policy environment in which they are carried out. Organisational policies and procedures must be consulted and adhered to, particularly those related to work health and safety (WHS), use of force, and pursuits.Those undertaking this unit would primarily work independently or under limited supervision, while performing specific/specified tasks in a broad range of contexts. They would be required to apply decision making and problem solving skills to interpret behaviours and develop solutions. No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to unit at the time of publication.
Duration and Setting X weeks, nominally xx hours, delivered in a classroom/online/blended learning setting.

This unit contains no specific industry-mandated assessment conditions. Guidance on suggested and recommended conditions and methods can be found in the Implementation Guide.

Consideration must be given to practical assessment for this unit. Refer to advice in the companion volumes.

Assessors must satisfy the NVR/AQTF mandatory competency requirements for assessors.
