Rapidly changing warehousing and logistics operations across Australia and globally are evolving the need for skilled operators in enterprises that has a direct impact on business productivity and financial security. Current industry enrolment evidence indicates that learners are undertaking an initial entry level logistics or warehousing operation qualification, and then undertaking additional study to achieve the full vocational competency requirement of working within an integrated logistics and warehousing environment.
The Transport and Logistics Industry Reference Committee (IRC) proposed this project to review and combine the Certificate II in Logistics and Certificate II in Warehousing Operations (including the associated Units of Competency) and develop a single industry qualification with the necessary skills and knowledge to meet the current and future skills needs of entry-level workers in logistic and warehousing roles. The Units of Competency will be reviewed and development completed to ensure that the effects of task automation, and emerging technologies are included for industry use. This project will also address the need for workers operating in intermodal logistics hub, including the requirement for working safe work operations in the rail corridor and address the skill needs of rail warehousing and logistic workers.
This new qualification will provide learners with multiple vocational pathways within the scope of a single qualification.VIEW 2019 IRC SKILLS FORECAST
