Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety is appropriate for individuals who work in the Work Health and Safety (WHS) role of their organisation. This individual will provide guidance and leadership to colleagues, and has limited responsibility for others’ output. This qualification reflects the knowledge and skills of an individual in the role of coordinator, advisor or facilitator.

To qualify for this certificate, you must provide evidence demonstrating that your skills and knowledge align with the courser’s learning outcomes. This evidence can take various forms. Demonstrating your current proficiency at a comparable level can be done through a CV (your student support representative can assist with this), an employment letter, or an employment contract.

Additionally, documents from prior work or educational experiences, such as references from licensed tradespeople you’ve collaborated with, apprenticeship records, academic transcripts, or assessments from relevant past qualifications, all contribute to the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) process. You can also submit proof of overseas qualifications or visual evidence of your work, especially for practical roles.
