The units chosen must  provide practical skills that are relevant and useful to the area in which the person hopes to gain employment or is currently working. The group of units should be chosen to support the project and should incorporate both the technical and employability skills needed for work.

Completion of a Certificate I in Manufacturing (Pathways) should provide the student with a set of competencies that collectively open up pathways into employment and/or further study.
