Description

This qualification covers the skills and knowledge required to perform the wide range of surface preparation and protective coating application operations which occur across a range of typically heavy industry, ships and infrastructure.

Job roles /employment outcomes 

The Certificate III in Surface Preparation and Coating Application has been developed as a trade level qualification for use in MSA07 Manufacturing Training Package. This qualification has been developed in response to an industry request. People with this qualification would be expected to work under routine only supervision, preparing surfaces and/or applying protective coatings in accordance with a provided technical specification. They would be expected to recognise situations where the intended approach was not appropriate/not working and take appropriate action to ensure the final result is satisfactory.

They may work in a manufacturer's factory or they may work as contractors on the site of the plant/ship/infrastructure.

Application 

The sector typically prepares surfaces for initial application, or for the reapplication, of protective coatings. In these circumstances it also applies the protective coating which may be liquid or solid. This qualification relates to surface preparation and  coating and coating units are required.

The surfaces being prepared are typically metal (usually ferrous) and may be structural or have other mechanical requirements.

People with this qualification may be expected to:

  • abrasively blast clean surfaces to Australian Standard requirements and in accordance with the specification
  • otherwise prepare surfaces for coating as required by the specification
  • apply liquid protective surface coatings
  • apply solid polymer surface coatings (this is usually a specialised area).

This work may be undertaken:

  • in a factory environment
  • in an on-site, outdoors environment
  • inside a vessel or other confined space
  • outside a vessel or structure
  • at heights
  • some combination of these.

Training programs for this qualification are suitable to be undertaken as part of a formal training contract with an employer under an Australian Traineeship or Apprenticeship arrangement.

Pathways into the qualification 

This qualification may be accessed by direct entry.

The units of competency contained within this qualification are common with other qualifications and credit should be granted towards this qualification where competency has already been achieved.

Credit should also be granted towards this qualification where competency has been achieved in units of competency contained within relevant skill sets. The skill set 'Confined Space Work Team Skill Set' was created in PMA08 Chemical, Hydrocarbons and Refining Training Package and is relevant to this qualification. Other skill sets have also been endorsed in MSA07 that relate to this qualification. Details are in 'Skill Sets in this Training Package'.

The units of competency in this qualification reflect competencies which are practiced within the industry and recognition should be granted where there is sufficient evidence of competency from work based experience.

Pathways from the qualification 

Further qualification pathways from this qualification include MSA40108 Certificate IV in Manufacturing Technology, MEM40105 Certificate IV in Engineering or other relevant qualifications.

Additional qualification advice 

MSA41108 Certificate IV in Competitive Manufacturing is available for team leaders or others who need a more generalist qualification covering the application of good manufacturing practice and lean principles.

Licensing considerations 

There are no specific licences that relate to this qualification. However, in some jurisdictions there may be licensing or regulatory requirements associated with the work. Local regulations should be checked for details.
