Type of institution: TAFE Institute
Level: Pre-degree
CRICOS: 01218G

This qualification defines the skills and knowledge required of an engineering/manufacturing employee within metal, engineering, manufacturing and associated industries.The skills associated with this qualification are intended to apply to a wide range of engineering/manufacturing work, including production, distribution, stores and warehousing. It provides the skills and knowledge for a person to be responsible for the quality of their own work, work from complex instructions and procedures, coordinate work in a team environment or work individually under general supervision and assist in the provision of on-the-job training of other workers.This qualification is specifically designed to cover the skills and knowledge required of workers employed as Engineering/Manufacturing Employees - Level IV as defined in the Manufacturing and Associated Industries and Occupations Award. Assessment of some units of competency must, where indicated, include evidence of the candidate's performance in a functioning workplace where there is a sufficient range of appropriate tasks and/or materials to cover the scope of application of those units. All outcomes must reflect the standard of performance required of the work associated with the Unit/s.This qualification is not suited and should not be used for people who are not employed in an engineering production or manufacturing environment, nor should it be used for school students unless they are formally engaged in a traineeship in accordance with the Australian Apprenticeships policy.No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this qualification at the time of publication. However, in some jurisdictions units in this qualification may relate to licensing or regulatory requirements. Local regulations should be checked.
