Course details

CRICOS course code: 099262D

Level of study: Career Based/Vocational


The accelerator program provides learners with 6 months of environmental projects active participation, supported by industry mentors, consultants and additional certifications.

The Diploma of Sustainable Operations specifies the competencies required to work in a technical, supervisory or operational role in sustainability in an organisation and/or its value chain (e.g. suppliers of goods or services, or customers). This qualification provides the skills needed to measure current sustainability performance and to establish processes for improved sustainability performance within organisations. It complements but does not duplicate qualifications supplying technical skills related to engineering, chemical, environmental and other technical analyses that may be needed for improving sustainability. This qualification has no formal entry requirement due to the wide variety of sustainability applications in industry. However, most enterprises will expect technical skills relevant to their operations or equivalent vocational experience and for this reason, the qualification is unlikely to be suitable for direct entry from school.
