BSB Business Services Draft Training Products

What are some of the significant change proposed for the BSB Business Services Training Package v7.0?

  • The Certificate I in Business is being retired
  • The current Certificate I and three Certificate II qualifications will be amalgamated into one new qualification the Certificate II in Workplace Skills. New packaging rules and elective groups are planned for this qualification
  • Business Administration qualifications! Seven Certificate III qualifications, including Business Administration, will be rolled into one Certificate III in Business qualification, which will include four specialisation streams – Customer Engagement, Business Administration, Medical Administration and Records and Information Management
  • The Diploma of Business has also been amended. Seven existing Diploma of Business qualifications have been rolled into one Diploma qualification with eight specialisations
  • New units of competency have been developed and packaged in the qualifications to address future skill requirements including skill areas such as communication, cyber security, leadership and sustainability
  • New skill sets have been developed


Just announced by Skills for Australia:

  • BSB40520 Certificate IV in Leadership and Management is deemed equivalent to BSB40515
  • BSB50420 Diploma of Leadership and Management is deemed equivalent to BSB51918
  • 2 new skill sets have been developed to address learner needs for those who the new BSB20120 Certificate II in Workplace Skills may not be appropriate, and as an entry pathway into BSB qualifications


Project Timeline

The public validation period ended on 6 March 2020. We expect that final versions will be submitted for endorsement at the August 2020 meeting of the Australian Industry and Skills Committee, before being released on training.gov.au in October 2020.

The BSB Industry Reference Committee has asked Skills for Australia to apply for an extended transition period to assist with the implementation of training package changes. At the direction of the IRC, the application will be for an 18-month transition period for all training products in scope.
