SIT12 Version 2 Endorsement 9 October 2013
Service Skills Australia has recently revised the SIT12 V1.2 Tourism, Travel and Hospitality Training Package, which was endorsed by the National Skills Standards Council (NSSC) at the 9 October 2013 endorsement meeting.
SIT12 Version 2 contains two new units of competency, and a change to the core of 15 qualifications. These changes ensure that the Training Package continues to remain relevant and responsive to the current and emerging needs and requirements of industry.
Units of Competency:
- SITHIND101 Use hygienic practices for hospitality service (New Unit of Competency)
- SITTTSL314 Provide specialist advice on cruises (New Unit of Competency)
- SITHFAB201 Provide responsible service of alcohol (Updates to wording in Evidence Guide)
The development of SITHIND101 Use hygienic practices for hospitality service resulted in a change to the core and packaging rules for Certificate I in Hospitality through to the Advanced Diploma of Hospitality. This change has resulted in the core of the current qualifications being reduced by ONE unit of competency and the elective requirement being increased by ONE unit of competency.
A new compulsory Group A Elective group has been created containing SITXFSA101 Use hygienic practices for food safety and SITHIND101 Use hygienic practices for hospitality service. One elective is required to be selected from this group, which allows individuals undertaking these qualifications to complete an appropriate personal hygiene or food safety unit of competency.
SIT20213 Certificate II in Hospitality has undergone the same change as the other hospitality qualifications listed however the total number of units required has increased by ONE due to the addition of SITXCOM201 Show social and cultural sensitivity to the core of the qualification. This unit is appropriate for all job outcomes and therefore has been included in the core of this qualification.

Updated First Aid Unit of Competency:
SIT12 Version 2 now includes the updated unit of competency (HLTAID003 Provide first aid) as it allows learners to complete the most up-to-date and relevant training in first aid. HLTAID003 Provide first aid has been updated in the core of nine qualifications, as well as updated in the elective groups in a number of SIT12 qualifications.
SIT40112 Certificate IV in Guiding also contained HLTFA311A Apply first aid as an entry requirement. The entry requirements for this qualification have now also been updated to include HLTAID003 Provide first aid.
