Release 1 - Initial release

Description

This qualification covers the skills and knowledge required to perform a range of advanced operations within the manufactured mineral products industries.

Job roles /employment outcomes 

The Certificate III in Manufactured Mineral Products is intended for advanced operators and operations technicians who use production equipment to directly produce products. At this level, operators/technicians would undertake more advanced operations, typically including startup and shutdown in accordance with the operating procedures, and would apply their knowledge to anticipate problems. They would be expected to solve a range of foreseen and unforeseen problems, using product and process knowledge to develop solutions to problems which do not have a known solution, or a solution recorded in the procedures.

Application 

This qualification is typically used to develop employees performing an advanced operational role that includes an ability to work independently and conduct technical problem solving according to the needs of the work in the manufactured mineral products industries.

Operators may specialise in one of the following areas:

  • cement
  • precast concrete
  • premixed concrete
  • clay products
  • ceramic products
  • float (flat) glass
  • glass containers
  • refractories
  • plaster (both fibrous plaster and plaster boards)
  • fibre cement boards
  • ground minerals
  • abrasive grinding wheels and cutting discs
  • other areas.

Specialisations must be reflected by the selection of units identified for specialised streams.

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. Credit may be granted towards this qualification by those who have completed MSA20107 Certificate II in Process Manufacturing, PMC20110 Certificate II in Manufactured Mineral Products or other relevant qualifications. Credit for this qualification may also include units contained within relevant skill sets.

Pathways from the qualification 

Further training pathways from this qualification include PMC40110 Certificate IV in Manufactured Mineral Products, MSS40312 Certificate IV in Competitive Systems and Practices or MSA40108 Certificate IV in Manufacturing Technology or other relevant qualifications.

Additional qualification advice 

An industry specialisation should include a range of units (typically production or other units relevant to the specialisation) that focus more on the industry speciality than a generic qualification.

An industry specialisation does not change the title of the qualification although RTOs may choose to record the specialisation.

MSA30107 Certificate III in Process Manufacturing, in the MSA07 Manufacturing Training Package is available for production support employees at this level and should be used where the job requirements do not allow for the development of competency in sufficient technical units of competency.

MSS40312 Certificate III in Competitive Systems and Practices is available for employees at this level who already possess technical skills and who require additional manufacturing practice skills above those available in this qualification.
