Careerforce, the Community Support Services ITO Limited, has completed the revision of the unit standards listed above.


Date new versions published                                                          January 2012


Planned review date                                                                           December 2016




The unit standards listed above were registered in June 2011.  In preparing resources for users of the standards, some ambiguities were noted.  These ambiguities meant that there was potential for over-assessment, difficulty in accessing listed references, and difficulty in assessing evidence requirements.


In order to address these issues, evidence requirements and range statements were amended in two of the unit standards and the references listed in the third unit standard were also amended.


Main changes


·      Evidence requirement 1.3 in unit standard 27454 was amended.

·      Explanatory notes, range statements for evidence requirements of outcome 1, and outcome 2 and its evidence requirements and range statements were amended in unit standard 27456.

·      References in unit standard 27457 were amended.


No candidates are currently waiting to be assessed against these standards.  Therefore, the last date for assessment of superseded versions of these unit standards (version 1) is 31 December 2012.  Results will not be accepted where the assessment date is after the last date for assessment of the superseded version of the unit standard.
