Training Packages


Industry Training Packages represent national industry benchmarks for nationally recognised job outcomes in the vocational education and training system. They are an integrated set of nationally endorsed Competency Standards, Assessment Guidelines and Australian Qualifications Framework qualifications for a specific industry, industry sector or enterprise.

Training packages comprise:

  • Competency Standards: define the requirements for workplace performance. They are expressed in outcome terms (e.g. prepare a tender bid) and specify the knowledge, skill and application of same to the standards of performance require the workplace.

  • Assessment Guidelines: provide a quality assurance framework for accurate, reliable and valid assessment of the competency standards, ensuring that assessments are thorough, consistent and valid.

  • Qualifications: formal certification recognising that a person has achieved learning outcomes or competencies that provide a meaningful outcome at an industry or enterprise level. Qualifications generally comprise a number of core and elective units that industry consider workers require to be able to perform a particular job.


Vocational competency can be achieved in many ways, and Training Packages acknowledge this by emphasising (via units of competency) what a learner can do - not how or where they learned to do it. For example, some experienced workers might be able to demonstrate competency against the standards and gain a qualification without completing a formal training course (skills recognition or recognition of prior learning).

Training Packages servicing the Financial, Administrative and Professional Services Sectors are:

Property Services Training Package (CPP07)

CPP07 represents a significant phase in the development of Training Packages for the Property Services Industry, covering the skills needs of people within the Security, Property Development, Sales and Management (PDSM), Spatial Information Services (SIS), Asset Maintenance, and Access Consulting Sectors.

The qualifications framework and units of competency for the various sectors of the Property Services Industry have been traditionally presented in three separate Training Packages (Asset Maintenance, Asset Security and Property Development and Management). The formation of the CPP07 Training Package began a process of consolidating those three Training Packages into a distinctive Property Services Training Package.

The process commenced with the redevelopment of the industry sectors covered by the former Property Development and Management Training Package (PRD01 ), and the subsequent inclusion of the former Asset Security Training Package (PRS03) and Asset Maintenance Training Package (PRM04).

The CPP07 Property Services Training Package now includes the redeveloped qualifications framework and units of competency for the following sectors:

  • Property Development, Sales and Management (including business broking, property operations and development, real estate and stock and station agency sectors from the former PRD01 Training Package)
  • Spatial Information Services (including spatial information services from the former PRD01 Training Package)
  • Security (including security operations, technical security, investigative services, biometrics, and security and risk management sectors from the former PRS03 Training Package)
  • Asset Maintenance (including cleaning services, fire protection equipment, pest management, and waste management from the former PRM04 Asset Maintenance Training Package)
  • Access Consulting (including access consulting from the former PRD01 Training Package

Overview of Property Services Training Package
Endorsed date of original version: 28 August 2007
Status: Current
Version 14.5 endorsed 21 April 2017, released 1 May 2017
