Date new version published                                                             August 2013


The next qualification review is planned to take place during 2014.


Reason for the revision


Standard 23396 was a compulsory standard in this qualification, and is expiring.  It has been removed from the compulsory section, so the qualification continues to be achievable.

Changes to structure and content:

·         Expiring standard 23396 was removed from the compulsory section.

·         Three credits were added to the requirements for Set 1 of Elective A to compensate for the deletion.




People currently working towards version 5 of this qualification may choose to complete the requirements for that version or transfer their results to the new version 6 of the qualification.
