Certificate IV in Process Manufacturing

The MSM40116 Certificate IV in Process Manufacturing provides the competencies required by advanced production workers who use a range of equipment and are involved in solving complex problems that require theoretical knowledge, combined with an understanding of operating procedures directly related to producing products.

This qualification is typically used to develop employees performing a technical role that includes the ability to work independently and conduct technical problem solving according to the needs of the work required to produce products.

This qualification is designed to develop employees who operate across more than one category within process manufacturing or other product conversion processes in manufacturing. Typical applications would be in chemical, hydrocarbons, refining, minerals processing, plastics, rubber, cablemaking, manufactured mineral products, and other areas as appropriate.

This program will develop skills to perform their tasks more efficiently. Learners will gain maximum job satisfaction by seeing and understanding how their role fits into the overall process. Successful learners will achieve a nationally accredited qualification which is recognised throughout Australia and New Zealand.

This qualification assumes that a learner has current or past work experience where operational or technical skills have already been gained and a supervisory, facilitation or similar level of responsibility exists. The qualification is not suitable for direct entry from school.

Typically, the implementation work will be undertaken with a combination of theory and projects. This provides an opportunity to address a specific issue or area and achieve defined outcomes. Corporate Partners programs are delivered through structured on-the-job learning, workshops and include one-to-one guidance and coaching for clients when required.

Training and assessment sessions are conducted with the learners in a client company workplace, on the job, utilising the company’s facilities. This program is ideal for skills development and demonstrating competency so any skills program should incorporate or be embedded within real work activities.

MSM40116 Certificate IV in Process Manufacturing Qualification is typically 18 months to complete. This time will vary due to learners taking leave, holidays or other leave during the program.
