This unique dual qualification program builds holistic skills and knowledge for team leaders by working directly on their own practices. This program differs from traditional programs as it has two strong focuses:
The objective of the Dual Qualification Certificate IV courses is to develop student skills and knowledge to a level where they can apply the individual tools and techniques to their own work, to assist others to apply the tools and techniques to their work and where required to lead and manage the implementation of a continuous improvement culture.
These qualifications, which provide a unique combination of introductory and more advanced skills in Lean Six Sigma and Leadership and Management, are nationally-accredited under the Australian Skills Quality Authority. Efficiency
Works will tailor the training content to client and student requirements.
The competency based training is structured around Lean Six Sigma concepts coupled with coaching aimed at creating maximum team member ownership and engagement. Students’ assessments are based on workplace improvement projects that are practical and action-oriented.
The program comprises a combination of units aimed at facilitating behavioural change through the application of specific business improvement techniques, tailored to suit the organisation’s business needs. The candidate assessments are mapped back to the training package and the resultant qualifications for successful candidates are both a MSS40316 Certificate IV in Competitive Systems and Practices and a BSB42015 Certificate IV in Leadership and Management.
The courses comprises 21 units of study combined in a way which enables participants to apply the leadership concepts during the continuous improvement projects required for the completion of the Competitive Systems
and Practices qualification. A list of units is included in the table below. Using the knowledge and skills developed throughout the training workshops, students form into small groups to identify and prepare for a series of
subsequent workplace projects that will be undertaken to include each topic.
The direct and immediate application into more effective teams and workplace projects reinforces the learning and is immediately converted into productivity gains, service improvements, improved decisions, improved team engagement and lower levels of resistance and conflict.
The key areas covered in the Dual Qualification Certificate IV include:
The course content has been designed with a focus on ensuring improvements are developed using real data from the relevant processes. In this way, the application of Visual Management systems and the use of data becomes a central theme to the training, with the emphasis on ensuring continuous improvement is driven from the regular review of process metrics and real time data.
