COURSE OVERVIEW

Qualifications are normally offered in conjunction with one other qualification depending on the requirements of each company and its workforce.

  • PMA30120 Certificate III in Process Plant Operations
  • MSS30316 Certificate III in Competitive Systems and Practices
  • MSM40116 Certificate IV in Process Manufacturing
  • MSS40316 Certificate IV in Competitive Systems and Practices
  • PMA40116 Certificate IV in Process Plant Technology
  • BSB30719 Certificate III in Work Health and Safety

Manufacturing courses at the Certificate III and IV level concentrate on practical implementation of Lean concepts and sustainable improvements in manufacturing environments.

The aim of Lean is to establish and maintain a culture of efficiency and continuous improvement within an organisation. Lean relies on foundational concepts:

  • Customer focus  –  value is only what the customer values.
  • Eliminating waste  –  if it is not providing value then you don’t need it.
  • Smooth flow  –  leveling out any variations to achieve a consistent flow of processes.
  • Efficiency  –  managing efficiencies along the supply chain rather than creating departments and silos.
  • Continuous improvement  –  continually finding ways to make improvements, no matter how small.
  • Respect for people  –  valuing the expertise of people who know their work.

All our manufacturing courses benefit from the same approach to identify and reduce waste. However, we also focus on critical requirements within the industry such as supply chain processes, and Workplace Health and Safety. While the core of the training remains the same, the specifics around the delivery can change to meet your industry needs.

These courses are delivered in the workplace by experienced staff and use workplace improvement projects as the practical and hands-on learning process. Projects are tailored to real areas of improvement within the workplace, allowing participants to apply their learning to real life situations.

Entry Requirements

There are no prerequisites, however, the qualifications are delivered as a work-based training and assessment program and therefore applicants must be employed in a suitable manufacturing company.

Additionally, they will need to have the support of their employer to undertake the training and assessment program.
