This is a single unit course.

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to manage the identification, review, development, implementation and evaluation of effective participation and consultation processes as an integral part of managing work health and safety (WHS).

It applies to individuals with responsibility for enabling people to be consulted about, and to participate in, WHS management and decision making across the organisation. These individuals will work in a range of WHS roles across all industries and apply a substantial knowledge base and well-developed skills in a wide variety of WHS contexts.

Upon successful completion of the unit, you will be issued with a Statement of Attainment in partial completion of the BSB51315 Diploma of Work Health and Safety.

We provide you with three (3) months to complete the course. There is no minimum timeframe for completion.

The course is self-paced so the hours of study vary from student to student and are influenced by many factors including the amount of time you are able to dedicate to your studies. That is why we give you three (3) months and all the support you need. The rest is up to you!

All of our assessments are marked by your assessor within ten (10) working days following the day you submitted your work. You have three (3) attempts for each task to achieve a competency result, with your assessor giving you detailed feedback following each submission.
