"The packing rules are confusing. The bold statement about "not mandatory" is not necessary. Having specialisations that lead to a specialised Dip seem totally unnecessary and is ridiculously hard to maintain. Any other Training Package that has tried this has reverted back to one call per level. It also falsely implies that you a are an expert in this specialisation after in some cases just a few units - is this desirable. A EN or RN qual does not do this why are we. If anything we need AHW who are generalists."

"I think you are being far to restrictive. If you can enroll in a Dip of Nursing with no pre-requisites then why do you need them here. It smell of protectionism and a closed shop attitude we got ride of in the 80's. If you insist on pre-reqs then broaden them to include Cert IV AHW care - as many similar units are covered and if a person has this they will easily get the Dip. They can hold a cert IV AHW practice without being registered as a practitioner and I think all reference to registration should be removed. It has nothing to do with holding a relevant qual. You should also allow in people who have completed part of a medical tertiary qual and can prove basic proficiency and the capacity to gain the Dip. What is proposed is not right."

"I can see many RTOs wanting to use more than 2 L electives. Units in elective K cover more that the topic area. Maybe you need L to be general units and include the ones from K that are not promotion and create if need be a Group M - called other with the more specialised units. The it would be 8 units from A to L and 2 from M."
