Following requests from industry, and an approval from the Australian Industry Skills Committee (AISC), these projects have been granted an extension which provides opportunity for more feedback. As a result, the validation stage for the Aquaculture, Fishing Operations & Biosecurity Project and the Seafood Post Harvest Project has now been extended from 10 October to 30 November 2018.
You’re invited to read and provide feedback on the final drafts of the qualifications, skill sets and units of competency and provide any final comments.
Validation means checking and confirming that the documents are logical and factually accurate. We are seeking your views on whether the units reflect the current industry skills standards, knowledge and practices and whether all job functions are accurately described.
Validating drafts is simple
To participate in the validation process, please click the project webpage links below.
Once you are on the Project webpage, please click on the expandable menus under ‘Drafts for Validation’ and download the unit, skill set or qualification that you are interested in reviewing and validating. After reading the final draft, click the ‘provide validation and/or further comment’ button. There is also the option to provide feedback via email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would prefer.

A focus of this project has been to incorporate skills to address changes in technology, legislative and regulatory requirements and environmental sustainability and management. Qualifications and units directly related to biosecurity have also been reviewed, in areas such as infection control, imports, exports, diseases and management.
Seafood Post Harvest Project
A focus of this project has been to incorporate skills to address changes in distribution, processing, storage, fishing and environmental management.
For those stakeholders that provided feedback on the initial drafts that were made available between 20 July – 19 August 2018. A description of how this feedback has been considered and applied in these final drafts can be downloaded from the relevant project webpages.
