This qualification is part of the Plastics, Rubber and Cablemaking Training Package. It is intended for senior operators and polymer technicians. These technicians may be process-based and directly involved in production, or they may be based elsewhere, such as in a laboratory, although they will typically still have functions on the production floor. The technician will typically be involved in trialling and in solving more complex problems which require greater theoretical knowledge, combined with an understanding of the production process and equipment.

Life after Study
Chemical plant operators control the operation of chemical production equipment used in processing minerals and in manufacturing a range of products such as drugs, textiles, ammunition and plastics.
Plastics and composites processors handle machinery that manufactures or finishes plastic or composite products by injection moulding, extrusion, blow moulding, blow film extrusion and other processes. They may also finish, repair, and refinish damaged products.
