Description

This qualification reflects the role of those using artisanal methods to produce fermented food and/or beverage products, such as beer, spirits, miso, table olives and fermented meat products. In this role, makers analyse materials and products, exercising judgement to guide the fermentation process and the work of others.

This qualification offers specialisations in:

  • Brewing
  • Distilling, and
  • Food and non-alcoholic beverages.
  • Individuals with this qualification apply a broad range of specialised skills and knowledge in varied contexts that involve selecting and operating equipment, coordinating resources and finding solutions to routine and non-routine problems as they arise. They may also have limited responsibility for the organisation of others.

    No licensing or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication. However, legislative and regulatory requirements for food processing and food businesses exist, so local requirements must be checked. All work must comply with Australian food safety standards and relevant codes of practice.
