Standard 10.4 – Modules
A module has been traditionally used when the learning outcome is theoretical and focuses on knowledge rather than a practical outcome. However, there has become less need for modules as knowledge-based units of competency have become increasingly common.
The national register includes more than 220 knowledge-based units of competency contained in training packages and VET accredited courses across a range of industry areas.
Some examples of endorsed knowledge-based units of competency include:
- DEFEXO082 - Apply knowledge of explosives
- ACMEQU205 - Apply knowledge of horse behaviour
- TLIX4028 - Apply knowledge of logistics
- CUAMLT202 - Apply knowledge of music culture to music making
- BSBWHS307 - Apply knowledge of WHS laws in the workplace
- ICTSAD602 - Conduct knowledge audits
- NAT10932006 - Apply biomechanics, anatomy, and physiology knowledge to yoga teaching practice
