Description
Employability Skills
Learning Outcomes and Application This unit describes the skills required to implement and monitor a security risk management plan. It includes implementing the plan, monitoring the risk environment and evaluating the plan.This unit applies to those working in a security role with some responsibility for addressing organisational risk.The skills and knowledge described in this unit must be applied 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 implementing risk management plans.Those undertaking this unit would work autonomously, occasionally accessing and evaluating support from a broad range of sources, while performing complex tasks in a range of contexts.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.

Assessment of this unit requires evidence gathered over time in a workplace environment or one that closely resembles normal work practice and replicates the diverse conditions likely to be encountered when implementing risk management plans.

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