Retaining the Integrity of Your Qualification

In a previous Blog we highlighted the Training package rules for BSB51615 Diploma of Quality Auditing and as readers of our Blog would know there are 8 Elective Units of Competency that form this qualification. In real terms one would have to consider the value of the Qualification to an auditor if the holder has not completed units 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 below.

  1. BSBAUD402 Participate in a quality audit
  2. BSBAUD501 Initiate a quality audit
  3. BSBAUD503 Lead a quality audit
  4. BSBAUD504 Report on a quality audit
  5. BSBINM501 Manage an information or knowledge management system
  6. BSBRSK501 Manage risk

The rules allow for some interesting combinations of Units and each week we assess several RPL claims, some of which, whilst following the Training Package Rules, are of questionable value to someone who is applying for an Auditors position.

Something to consider: The training Package rules state Elective units must be relevant to the work environment and the qualification, maintain the integrity of the AQF alignment and contribute to a valid, industry-supported vocational outcome”. Thus, if you wish to import Units from another qualification into BSB51615 Diploma of Quality Auditing then we require from you in writing, a request you be allowed to do this and stating just how you intend to use the qualification. If your intended use does not align itself with the above, we are not obliged to approve your request.

I sometimes wonder if the qualification is more about auditing for quality or quality auditing. Is there a difference? Tell us in less than 150 words what you think; the best answer will receive a 50% discount on their course plus it will be printed on our Blog.
