Entrants to Australia’s meat processing industry require essential skills to prepare quality meat products hygienically and safely. Currently there are three Certificate II level meat processing qualifications that support accredited training pathways for new entrants. These qualifications have been reviewed and revised through consultation with the project Technical Committee and subject matter experts to determine how they can best support the attraction and development of new learners.

The three qualifications are proposed to be merged together to become one qualification to offer greater flexibility and the ability to choose from a range of electives, without being restricted to one specialist area.

The draft qualification, skill sets and units of competency are now available for broad stakeholder consultation.

Your feedback is encouraged. They will be available for feedback from 15 May – 31 July 2024.
