Modification History

New qualification - Release 1

Description

This qualification applies to a learning and assessment environment where access to structured on-the-job learning in a workplace may not be available. This qualification is only for delivery in learning institutions.

The qualification is intended for people interested in exposure to an engineering or related working environment with a view to entering into employment in that area. This qualification will equip graduates with knowledge and skills which will enhance their prospects of employment in an engineering or related working environment.

Application 

The learning program should develop trade-like skills but not attempt to develop trade-level skills. As an example, the outcome level of welding skills from this qualification is not about learning trade-level welding theory and practice; it is about being introduced to welding, how it can be used to join metal and having the opportunity to weld some metal together. Similarly with machining, the outcome should be something produced on a lathe etc., not the theory and practice of machining. The focus should be on using engineering tools and equipment to produce or modify objects. This needs be done in a safe manner for each learner and those around them.

Delivery 

Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) offering this qualification will need to have access to basic engineering equipment and facilities, as well as sufficient open plan workshop facilities where long-term projects, perhaps spanning the duration of the learning, can be completed. The teachers/trainers must be experienced with the knowledge and trade skills to successfully facilitate and motivate skills development in the learners. Trainers and assessors must meet the NVR/AQTF trainer and assessor requirements for training and assessment, vocational competency and professional development.

The learning program should be centred around the major project.

MSAPCI101A Adapt to work in industry is a unit of competency that provides the opportunity for work placement.

Pathways Information

Pathways into the qualification 

This qualification will be typically accessed by direct entry.

Pathways from the qualification 

This qualification delivers broad-based underpinning skills and knowledge in a range of engineering and manufacturing tasks which will enhance the graduates’ entry-level employment prospects for apprenticeships, traineeships or general employment in an engineering-related workplace.

Achievement of competence in units MEM13014A Apply principles of occupational health and safety in a work environment, MSAPMSUP106AWork in a team, MEM16006AOrganise and communicate information, MEM16008AInteract with computing technology, MSAENV272BParticipate in environmentally sustainable work practices, MEM18001CUse hand tools and MEM18002BUse power tools/hand held operations will provide credit towards a range of manufacturing and engineering trade and production qualifications.

Achievement of competence in all of the other units will provide advanced progress towards reaching competence in units contained in other metal and engineering qualifications.
