Main changes resulting from the revision


Expiring and expired standards were removed from the qualification.


Changes to structure and content

·        Sets 3-5 of Elective 2 were removed from the qualification as they contained expired and expiring standards.

·        A new Set 3 in Elective 2, including classifications rather than standards, was added to the qualification.

Please note that standards 7480, 7485, 7487, 7522, 7535, 8808, and 8811 - listed as part of the balance set in Elective 2 - will also expire on 31 December 2012.  However, the balance set lists other standards that will allow candidates to meet the requirements of this set.


The last date for assessment of version 2 of the qualification is 31 December 2014.
