    university qualifications worthwhile??

    Hey! It would be fantastic if i could get some guidance on what to do next.
    I work at the West australian newspapers in production (11 years) and have been a ohs rep for 2 years. I am also the facilitator of sops (producing safe operating procedures and ensuring other employees understand and sign off on them.
    I have completed cert 3 and 4 and have just enrolled for my cert 4 in training and assessing which will be completed before the end of the year.
    I have a double degree in accounting and finance (never used) and am considering doing a post grad in ohs next year. I also notice you can do a diploma at tafe in ohs which would be cheaper and less time consuming. So the question is,, which is more worthwhile? Is there any other paths you believe to be more beneficial??
    My goal is to get into the ohs feild as an advisor/investigator. Any advice is welcome. Thanks

    Hi.

    As a Group Manager, my advice is forget post grad and go for vet sector. If your a whs rep, the cert IV in whs is your first requirement as the rep course doesn't " map" to it. Then do the diploma then advanced diploma.

    When I recruit, anyone who has tertiary without vocational is less likely to get through the cull than someone with a cert IV/ dip and actual operational experience.

    No points for book smart.
