The MSF30413 Certificate III in Glass and Glazing reflects vocational outcomes for those performing glass processing, glazing or architectural glass functions in residential and commercial operations and could include manufacturing, processing, installation and stained glass and leadlighting design. Job roles would be in a defined range of skilled operations, usually within a range of broader related activities involving known routines, methods and procedures, where some discretion and judgement is required in the selection of equipment, services or contingency measures and within known time constraints.

Specialisation is possible in this qualification depending on the electives chosen. A specialisation can be identified on the testamur where a minimum of six (6) elective units of competency are achieved in one of the three elective groups and units chosen must include those marked with ‘#’ in each specialist group:

  • Group B - Glass Processing
  • Group C - Glazing

    There are no specific licenses that relate to this qualification. However, depending on the state and territory where work is undertaken licensing may relate to this qualification where the candidate is required to work on-site. The licensing requirement will usually involve construction induction training. Where licensing is required the unit CPCCOHS1001A Work safely in the construction industry should be selected. If no licensing requirement exists (e.g. where all work will be off-site) then the unit MSMWHS200 Work safely should be selected

    Depending on the jurisdiction, licensing or regulatory requirements may apply to the use of some units in this qualification. Licensing of glazing work applies in Queensland, NSW and South Australia. Local regulations should be checked for details.
