This qualification covers the skills and knowledge required by a tradesperson working with composites within the metal, engineering, manufacturing and associated industries, or other industries where composites tradespersons work. The qualification has been specifically developed to meet the needs of apprentices in the above trade. The qualification packaging has been developed on the assumption that competency will be developed through an integrated combination of on and off-the-job learning strategies such as those delivered through a formal apprenticeship. The qualification may also be achieved through formal skills recognition assessment processes.
