Description

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

Job roles /employment outcomes 

The Certificate IV in Manufactured Mineral Products is intended for plant technicians.

The technician will typically be involved in solving complex problems which require theoretical knowledge, combined with an understanding of the production process and equipment across the plant.

Application 

This qualification is typically used to develop employees performing a technical 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.

Non-technical team leaders, coordinators and supervisors may be better served by a qualification in competitive systems and practices.

People with this qualification may be expected to work in one of the following sectors:

  • 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.

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 PMC30110 Certificate III in Manufactured Mineral Products, MSA30107 Certificate III in Process Manufacturing, MSA30208 Certificate III in Manufacturing Technology 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 PMC50110 Diploma of Manufactured Mineral Products, MSS50312 Diploma of Competitive Systems and Practices, MSA50108 Diploma of Manufacturing Technology or other relevant qualifications, including appropriate vocational graduate qualifications.

Additional qualification advice 

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