Course Overview

Description

Average Course Fee: Not available
Average Course Duration: Not available

The Certificate III in Process Manufacturing is intended for advanced production workers who use a range of equipment and provide support functions directly related to producing products. They would undertake more advanced roles, working in accordance with the operating procedures and would apply their knowledge to anticipate problems and solve a range of foreseen and unforeseen problems.

This qualification is for:

  • production support workers - people working in manufacturing and filling the vital production support roles but who may not have the opportunity to develop competency in sufficient technical units related directly to producing products
  • those employees who operate across more than one category within process manufacturing or 'specialised processes' and elsewhere when required.
  • It is designed for use across the three process manufacturing sectors:

  • chemical, hydrocarbons and oil refining
  • plastics, rubber and cablemaking
  • manufactured mineral products.
  • Licensing considerations

    There are no specific licenses that relate to this qualification. However, some units in this qualification may have licensing or regulatory requirements depending on the work context. Local regulations should be checked for details.
