NWP Flood Site Operations
The purpose of the project is to develop one new Unit of Competency and one new Skill Set to address specific skills for undertaking flood management and site operations and enable flood warning sites to be operated to a higher and more consistent standard.
Currently flood events are monitored by many different agencies (councils, Bureau of Meteorology, rail and roads departments & contractors) but not all to the same standard. The new Training Package products will enable consistent operational practices nationally.
The Water IRC will have oversight of this project, which will be facilitated by Australian Industry Standards (AIS) in consultation with industry stakeholders. A Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) will be formed to provide subject matter expertise for the development of Training Package materials.
If you have any questions about this project or are a subject matter expert and would like to be considered for the TAC for this project, please contact the Industry Skills Specialist.
The Case for Endorsement and draft materials are due to be submitted by 31 August 2022.
The following products will be submitted to the AISC for consideration:
- 1 new Unit of Competency
- 1 new Skill Set
- Case for Endorsement
- Updated Companion Volume Implementation Guide
