DEF Geospatial Project

Overview

The Case for Change was drafted in consultation with the Australian Geospatial Imagery Organisation and Defence stakeholders with the recommendation for development of a national joint cyber and geospatial capability, as outlined in the White Paper and First Principles Review.

The Public Safety Industry Reference Committee (IRC) will have oversight of this project which will be facilitated by Australian Industry Standards in consultation with industry stakeholders. The project covers the review of existing and new Property Services Training Package products, relevant to ANZIC 6922 Surveying and Mapping Services and ANZCO 3121 Architectural, Building and Surveying Technicians, where these roles are aligned to current and future Defence capability requirements.

The following DEF Defence Training Package products, will be developed as part of this Project. This includes:

    Case for Change

    The Public Safety Industry Reference Committee (IRC) has developed a Case for Change focusing on the review of existing and new Property Services Training Package products, relevant to ANZIC 6922 Surveying and Mapping Services and ANZCO 3121 Architectural, Building and Surveying Technicians, where these roles are aligned to current and future Defence capability requirements.

    The Case for Change was drafted in consultation with the Australian Geospatial Imagery Organisation and Defence stakeholders with the recommendation for development of a national joint cyber and geospatial capability, as outlined in the White Paper and First Principles Review.

    The Case for Change was also developed with consideration of the Training Package Development and Endorsement Process Policy, and outlines the requirements for change to ensure that the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) can make decisions based on robust evidence.

    The following DEF Defence Training Package products, are proposed for development as part of this Case for Change. This includes:

    • Four new Defence Units of Competency
    • Two new Defence Skill Sets

    Products developed because of this Case for Change will be integrated with the wider suite of Defence Qualifications within the next release of the DEF Defence Training Package.
