Competenz has extended the expiry dates of the unit standards listed above. Date new versions published October 2015 Summary

The unit standards were designated to expire on 31 December 2015 or 31 December 2016.

The Targeted Review of Qualifications in the Mechanical Engineering sectors is currently in progress. This process will also involve a complete review of all unit standards and development of resources.

It is expected that these processes would take some time and therefore it is necessary to extend the availability of the unit standards listed above to allow time for qualification candidates to complete the requirements of their programmes.

Main changes

Expiry dates were extended to 31 December 2017.
