This version released with FBP Food, Beverage and Pharmaceutical Training Package Version 1.0.

Application

This unit of competency describes the skills and knowledge required to set up, operate, adjust and shut down a process to deposit fillings into a pastry shell or onto a pastry sheet which is then topped or formed to product specifications.

This unit applies to individuals who work in a production baking environment under general supervision with some accountability for their own work. This includes identifying and providing solutions to a limited range of predictable problems relating to the operation and monitoring of a pastry forming and filling process and associated equipment.

All work must be carried out to comply with workplace procedures, in accordance with State/Territory work health and safety, and food safety regulations, legislation and standards that apply to the workplace.

No occupational licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
