Modification History

Release 1. Supersedes and is equivalent to PMB20107 Certificate II in Polymer Processing.

Qualification Description

The PMB20116 Certificate II in Polymer Processing is intended for competent operators who operate production equipment or undertake similar roles to directly produce products.

The operator will be able to operate production equipment within defined specifications and procedures and carry out a range of support functions. The operator will be able to apply technical and procedural knowledge to a defined range of situations and activities.

The operator will be able to solve predictable problems by applying known solutions and will report non-routine problems to appropriate personnel.

This qualification applies to the production of a wide range of polymer products and components ranging from consumer products to components to be included in other commercial, industrial or consumer products. Products may be made from a wide range of natural and synthetic polymers covering thermoplastics as well as thermosetting polymers. Production may be long runs of standard products, short runs or ‘one offs’ of specialised products.

For people who do not directly produce product but work in production support roles see MSM20116 Certificate II in Process Manufacturing.

For people who require a more generalist qualification covering the application of good manufacturing practice and lean principles see MSS20316 Certificate II in Competitive Systems and Practices.

There are no specific licenses that relate to this qualification. However, some units in this qualification may have licensing or regulatory requirements in some jurisdictions. Local regulations should be checked for details.

Entry Requirements

There are no entry requirements for this qualification.

Packaging Rules
