This qualification describes the skills and knowledge required to perform a range of glass and glazing job roles, including safely manufacturing, processing, moving and installing various types of glass and handling glazing materials and components.

Job roles/employment outcomes 

The LMF30611 Certificate III in Glass and Glazing reflects vocational outcomes for those performing glass processing, glazing or architectural glass functions in residential and commercial operations and could include manufacturing, processing, installation and stained glass and leadlighting design. Job roles would be in a defined range of skilled operations, usually within a range of broader related activities involving known routines, methods and procedures, where some discretion and judgement is required in the selection of equipment, services or contingency measures and within known time constraints.


This qualification is typically used to develop skills and a breadth, depth and complexity of knowledge in a full range of glass and glazing techniques and would cover selecting, adapting and transferring this skill and knowledge to new environments and providing technical advice and some leadership in resolution of specific problems. Applications would be across a range of roles in a variety of contexts with some complexity in the extent and choice of options available and may involve some responsibility for others. Participation in teams, including group or team coordination, may be required.
