Description

This qualification covers the skills and knowledge required of workers employed as Engineering/manufacturing Employees -Level III as defined in the Manufacturing and Associated Industries and Occupations Award or in related industries where Engineering/ Manufacturing Employees work.

The qualification has been specifically developed to reflect the minimum training requirement specified in the Award for employment in the above occupation. The qualification packaging has been developed on an assumption that competency will be developed through a combination of on and off-the-job learning strategies such as those delivered through a formal traineeship. The qualification may also be achieved through formal skills recognition assessment processes.

Application

This qualification is designed to provide an industry recognised skills profile related to production work as an Engineering/ Manufacturing Employee - Level III. Competency development would typically be undertaken through an Australian Apprenticeships arrangement where the integration of on and off-the-job training would be specified in the Training Plan associated with the Contract of Training between the employer and trainee.

Assessment of some units of competency must, where indicated, include evidence of the candidate's performance in a productive work environment where there is a sufficient range of appropriate tasks and/or materials to cover the scope of application of those units. All outcomes must reflect the standard of performance required of the work associated with the Unit/s.

This qualification is not suited and should not be used for people who are not employed in an engineering production or manufacturing environment. It is not suited and should not be used for school students unless they are formally engaged in a traineeship in accordance with the Australian Apprenticeships policy.
