What Is a Cert IV & Diploma of WHS in Darwin?
A Diploma in work health and safety is a qualification for workers who work in WHS leadership roles. Before obtaining a Diploma of WHS, you must complete the five core units for the Cert IV Work Health and Safety certificate.
Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety was designed to give WHS workers specialised training in WHS workplace compliance. In Darwin and the rest of the Northern Territory, employers may need to cover medical costs and other responsibilities after a worker experiences an injury. As workplace injuries can occur in any setting, Cert IV training is an effective solution for maintaining a safer workplace.
