This qualification reflects the role of technologists and those in similar paraprofessional roles in the plastics, rubber and cablemaking sectors. They apply in-depth knowledge of materials, process, equipment and problem solving to analyse performance and failure in equipment and products and to assist in the development of new/modified products. They are not required to be competent to operate production equipment but will understand the principles behind the relevant production and support processes.
Products and components may be for commercial, industrial or consumer markets and be made from natural or synthetic polymers covering thermoplastics as well as thermosetting polymers. Production may be long runs of standard products, short runs, or ‘one offs’ of specialised products.
There are no specific licenses that relate to this qualification. However, some units in this qualification may have licensing or regulatory requirements in some jurisdictions. Local regulations should be checked for details.
