The MSM30116 Certificate III in Process Manufacturing provides the competencies required by advanced production workers who use a range of equipment and provide support functions directly related to producing products. They would undertake more advanced roles than workers with a Certificate II in Process Manufacturing, working in accordance with operating procedures and applying knowledge to anticipate problems and solve a range of foreseen and unforeseen problems.
This qualification is designed for use across the three process manufacturing sectors:
chemical, hydrocarbons and oil refining
plastics, rubber and cablemaking
manufactured mineral products.
It includes the same range of electives, but with different packaging rules to provide a qualification for workers unable to meet the technical requirements of PMA, PMB or PMC.
This qualification covers:
production support workers - people working in manufacturing and filling the vital production support roles but who may not have the opportunity to develop competency in sufficient technical units related directly to producing products
employees who operate across more than one category within process manufacturing or 'specialised processes' and elsewhere when required.
