Certificate IV in Competitive systems and Practices

The MSS40316 Certificate IV in Competitive Systems and Practices specifies the competencies required by team leaders or those in similar job roles that are responsible for the implementation of competitive systems and practices in the work of a team or in a work area.

This qualification provides the skills and knowledge required by a team leader or other person to implement competitive systems and practices in the work of a team or work group, or by a specialist in competitive systems and practices.

This qualification provides the skills needed to improve efficiency in a team or work area as well as in a person’s own work role through the implementation of competitive systems and practices. It complements but does not duplicate qualifications supplying operational, production, maintenance, logistics or other technical skills to industry. Where these skills are required appropriate qualifications from other Training Packages should be considered.

This qualification is not intended to supply operational or technical skills that are used in conjunction with competitive systems and practices skills.

This qualification assumes that a learner has current or past work experience where operational or technical skills have already been gained and a supervisory or similar level of responsibility exists. This qualification is not suitable for direct entry from school.
