Updates to the new 2020 BSB Training Package

There have been some significant changes in the BSB training package that affects most of the qualifications and units in the training package. Being one of the most in-demand areas of training, the new BSB training package update means most RTOs and students will be affected. 

The update has added new components, as well as superseded others. The BSB Training Package Version 7.0 includes 20 new units along with a major reduction of seven units from the previous version. This means a lot of RTOs will need to reapply for scope registration as many popular qualifications will no longer be equivalent.

The Australian Industry Skills Committee (AISC) endorsed updates to 33 qualifications. This move was made to streamline the training package and consolidate many qualifications.

  • BSB80120 Graduate Diploma of Management (Learning) 
  • BSB80220 Graduate Diploma of Portfolio Management 
  • BSB80320 Graduate Diploma of Strategic Leadership 

The following qualifications will be deleted once the changes are in place this coming October: 

  • BSB30515 Certificate III in Business Administration (International Education) 
  • BSB30615 Certificate III in International Trade 
  • BSB40715 Certificate IV in Franchising 
  • BSB40915 Certificate IV in Governance 
  • BSB50515 Diploma of Franchising 
  • BSB52318 Diploma of Governance

The changes mostly affect the Business stream with only just seven qualifications left from its previous 29. Specialised areas are affected by the update, as well. For the full scope of changes, check out training.gov.au
