This version released with FWP Forest and Wood Products Training Package Version 7.0.

Qualification Description

This qualification reflects the job role of Saw Technicians who service, maintain and align saw blades, knives and guides for timber sawmilling machines and other applications. Saw Technicians may also inspect, test, maintain and troubleshoot mechanical components on sawing machine centres to achieve sawing production rates and product tolerances.

The elective groups and units of competency within this qualification can provide Saw Technicians with two pathway options. Saw Technicians can use the qualification to develop skills in performing general saw servicing operations or develop skills in saw maintenance engineering roles.

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

Entry Requirements

There are no entry requirements for this qualification.
