Individuals at this level display initiative and judgement in planning, organising, implementing and monitoring their own workload and the workload of others. They use communication skills to support individuals and teams to meet organisational or enterprise requirements.

They plan, design, apply and evaluate solutions to unpredictable problems, and identify, analyse and synthesise information from a variety of sources.

This qualification will be delivered over 52 weeks, including 36 weeks of training and assessment spread over 6 terms of 6 weeks and 12 weeks of holidays. Holidays are 2 weeks after each term, with the exception of the 4 week mid and end of year breaks. See dates here: http://www.nvr.edu.au/fees-and-dates/
