Modification History

Release 1. New qualification. Supersedes but is not equivalent to MEM30205 Certificate III in Engineering – Mechanical Trade.

Qualification Description

This qualification defines the skills and knowledge required of an Engineering Tradesperson - Mechanical specialising in diesel fitting and plant mechanics within metal, engineering, manufacturing and associated industries. The qualification has been specifically developed for apprentices in the above trade. The qualification packaging has been developed on an assumption that competency will be developed through a combination of on and off-the-job learning strategies such as those delivered through a formal apprenticeship. The qualification may also be achieved through formal skills recognition assessment processes.

The skills associated with this qualification are intended to apply to a wide range of trade work including manufacturing, assembly and commissioning of mobile and stationary plant, servicing, diagnosis and rectification of faults, condition monitoring, and preventative maintenance.

This qualification is designed to provide an industry recognised skills profile related to trade work as a fixed and/or mobile plant mechanic. Skills development should be undertaken through an Australian Apprenticeship arrangement where the mix of on and off-the-job training would be specified in the Training Plan associated with the Contract of Training between the employer and apprentice.

Assessment of some units of competency must, where indicated, include evidence of the candidate's performance in a functioning workplace where there is a sufficient range of appropriate tasks and materials to cover the scope of application of those units. All outcomes must reflect the standard of performance inherent in the job.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this qualification at the time of publication. However, in some jurisdictions units in this qualification may require a license or relate to regulatory requirements. Licensing and regulatory information is included in the relevant units of competence.

Entry Requirements

There are no entry requirements for this qualification.

Packaging Rules

To be awarded the MEM31419 Certificate III in Engineering – Fixed and Mobile Plant Mechanic units of competency to a value of 96 points must be achieved, chosen as outlined below:

  • all core units of competency listed below (totalling 63 points)
  • units to a value of 33 points from Group A electives

Appropriate Group A elective units to the value of 8 points may be chosen from other endorsed Training Packages and accredited courses where those units are available for inclusion at Certificate III. Only select units that would be suitable for occupational outcomes in a fixed and/or mobile plant mechanic trade environment.

Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) must seek a determination from the industry parties in respect of the allocation of points values for units of competency drawn from other Training Packages or accredited courses. Determination of points requests are to be submitted to the industry parties through Innovation and Business Skills Australia (IBSA) Manufacturing. Refer to the MEM Companion Volume Implementation Guide for information on determination of unit points values.

Prerequisites 

Points associated with prerequisites count towards the total. Units with prerequisite requirements are marked with an asterisk (refer to the individual units for details). All prerequisites are included in the units listed.
