The Primary Industry Training Organisation has extended the expiry dates of the unit standards listed above.  The standards in bold were reinstated as expiring.


Date new versions published                                                          September 2015




Unit standards 20556 and 20566 expired on 31 December 2014.  The other unit standards will expire on 31 December 2015.


It was intended that the national qualifications that use these unit standards would be reviewed and the expiring and expired standards replaced before their expiry date.  However, the affected national qualifications will not expire until the end of 2019.  Consequently, the Primary Industry Training Organisation has reinstated unit standards 20556 and 20566 as expiring and extended the expiry date of all the standards to ensure that the qualifications remain achievable.


Main changes


The last date for assessment of the standards was extended to 31 December 2019.
