Certificate III in Engineering - Production Systems - MEM30119

Federation University Australia

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 understand and apply quality control techniques, exercise good interpersonal and communications skills, work from complex instructions and procedures, exercise discretion within the scope of responsibility, perform work under limited supervision either individually or in a team environment, be responsible for assuring the quality of their own work, perform work which, while primarily involving the skills of the employee\u2019s qualification, is incidental or peripheral to the primary task and facilitate the completion of the whole task, inspect products and/or materials for conformity with established operational standards and assists in the provision of on-the-job training of other workers.This qualification is designed to provide an industry recognised skills profile related to production work as an Engineering/ Manufacturing Employee - Level V. Competency development would typically be undertaken through an Australian Apprenticeships arrangement where the integration of on and off-the-job training would be specified in the Training Plan associated with the Contract of Training between the employer and trainee.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 associates 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. It is not suited and should not 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.
