The PMB30116 Certificate III in Polymer Processing is intended for advanced operators who use production equipment to directly produce products.

The operator will be able to apply theoretical and technical knowledge and well developed skills to undertake advanced operations and exercise judgement in areas such as start-up and shutdown procedures and quality assurance.

The operator will be able to apply their knowledge to anticipate problems and to solve a range of routine and non-routine problems using product and process knowledge to develop solutions to problems which do not have a known solution or do not have a solution recorded in the procedures.

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.

The qualification includes units of competency which are the beginning of the polymer technician stream and which contribute to a deeper knowledge of polymers and processes.

For people who do not directly produce product but work in production support roles see MSM30116 Certificate III in Process Manufacturing.

For people who require a more generalist qualification covering the application of good manufacturing practice and lean principles see MSS30316 Certificate III 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.

Training will be delivered fully on-the-job at employer sites.

This qualification can be delivered in the workplace under a traineeship.
