Description

The PMC30116 Certificate III in Manufactured Mineral Products covers the skills and knowledge required to perform a range of advanced operations within the manufactured mineral products industries.

The qualification is suitable to develop existing workers to perform an advanced operational role to directly produce product.

The operator will be able to work independently and to apply theoretical and technical knowledge and well developed skills to undertake advanced operations and exercise judgement in areas such as start-up and shutdown procedures and quality assurance.

The operator will be able to apply their knowledge to anticipate problems and to solve a range of routine and non-routine problems using product and process knowledge to develop solutions to problems which do not have a known solution or do not have a solution recorded in the procedures.

The operator will be able to solve a range of foreseen and unforeseen problems, using product and process knowledge to develop solutions to problems which do not have a known solution, or a solution recorded in the procedures.

The qualification provides the skills and knowledge relevant to the following sectors:

  • cement
  • precast concrete
  • premixed concrete
  • clay products
  • ceramic products
  • float (flat) glass
  • glass containers
  • refractories
  • plaster (both fibrous plaster and plaster boards)
  • fibre cement boards
  • ground minerals
  • abrasive grinding wheels and cutting discs.
  • For people who do not directly produce product but work in production support roles see MSM30116 Certificate III in Process Manufacturing.

    For people who require a more generalist qualification covering the application of good manufacturing practice and lean principles see MSS30316 Certificate III in Competitive Systems and Practices.
