This qualification is part of the Plastics, Rubber and Cablemaking Training Package. It is intended for advanced operators who use production equipment to directly produce products. They would undertake more advanced operations, typically including start-up and shut-down 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.
