Description

The MSM40116 Certificate IV in Process Manufacturing provides the competencies required by advanced production workers who use a range of equipment and are involved in solving complex problems that require theoretical knowledge, combined with an understanding of operating procedures directly related to producing products.

This qualification is typically used to develop employees performing a technical role that includes the ability to work independently and conduct technical problem solving according to the needs of the work required to produce products.

This qualification is designed to develop employees who operate across more than one category within process manufacturing or other product conversion processes in manufacturing. Typical applications would be in chemical, hydrocarbons, refining, minerals processing, plastics, rubber, cablemaking, manufactured mineral products, and other areas as appropriate.

Non-technical team leaders, coordinators and supervisors may be better served by a qualification in competitive manufacturing. Qualification pathways from this qualification include MSM50316 Diploma of Production Management and MSS50312 Diploma of Competitive Systems and Practices.
