The national training reform agenda is complex and multi-faceted. The Finn Review is one part of this particular agenda aimed at reshaping post-compulsory education in Australia and setting national participation targets (main implications for schools and TAFE; 2nd order effect on universities). The "definition" of credential is being examined. The nexus between credentials and courses will be challenged if not broken. The possibility of certificating 'competency profiles' is being considered. Some competencies may be developed through training; others acquired in other ways. Courses need not lead to a credential.
