View Project Overview (and Outcome)
December 2019: Submission
The Case for Endorsement, final draft PMA Chemicals, Hydrocarbons & Refinery Training Package components and PMA Companion Volume Implementation Guide was submitted to the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) for approval.
Thanks to the industry experts and the Process Manufacturing, Recreational Vehicle and Laboratory Industry Reference Committee (IRC), who have given so freely of their time to shape the changes. Thanks must also go to all stakeholders who provided comment throughout the project.
October 2019: Consultation now closed
Consultation for Draft 2 training package components for the Chemicals, Hydrocarbon and Refining 2017 Project is now closed.
Thank you to those stakeholders who provided comment. The feedback will be collated and reviewed by the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) to shape the final versions, then submitted to the Process Manufacturing, Recreational Vehicles and Laboratory IRC to confirm their support for submission to the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC).
The Case for Endorsement and related training package components are scheduled for submission to the AISC in December 2019.
Once the Case for Endorsement has been approved, the training package components will be uploaded to the TGA website.
September 2019: Consultation
Consultation for Draft two training package components for the Chemicals, Hydrocarbons and Refining 2017 Project ended on 2 October 2019.
July 2019: Consultation
Consultation for Draft 1 training package components for the Chemical, Hydrocarbons and Refining Project ended on 1 July 2019.
Thank you to those stakeholders who provided comment.
All feedback will be considered by the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) and Round 2 public consultation will be made available in August 2019.
The new TAC met on 18 February to discuss the industry requirements for PMA30116 Certificate III in Process Plant Operations. A number of draft units were considered, including proposed new units, the agreed approach will provide a foundation for redevelopment of remaining units. Specialisations have been proposed for the qualification which will be further considered by the TAC. Draft 1 components are scheduled to be available in April.
This project will now focus on the review of the Certificate III in Process Plant Operations, and associated units. A Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) is being reconvened and will comprise of nominated individuals whom have significant expertise and knowledge of the industry. The TAC is scheduled to meet in February 2019.
Project update May 2018
The LNG sector is progressing its analysis of required skills and knowledge for operators, mainly at Certificate III and IV levels. It is expected that outcomes from this industry project can closely align to the review of the PMA qualifications and units of competency. IBSA Manufacturing will continue to work with the LNG sector, as well as stakeholders in the chemicals and refining sectors, to ensure revised training package components align with industry objectives.
Project update December 2017
IBSA Manufacturing, in consultation with the Process Manufacturing, Recreational Vehicle and Laboratory Industry Reference Committee (IRC) established a technical advisory committee (TAC) which met for the first time in late August.
The TAC operates under the direction of the IRC and comprises of organisations and nominated individuals whom have significant expertise and knowledge working within the industry.
Draft training package components are scheduled to be available for public comment in early 2018.
Project update October 2017
The Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) has been established and will operate under the direction of the Process Manufacturing, Recreational Vehicle and Laboratory Industry Reference Committee(IRC).
Membership of the TAC is comprised of organisations and nominated individuals whom have significant expertise and knowledge working within the industry, and will provide specific subject matter advice and technical expertise for the development and review of the training package components. The first TAC meeting to identify changes in job roles and assist in the functional and task analysis of current and future job roles in the sector was held in August. At this meeting, it was recommended that work be delayed to consider the outcomes of a current industry project.
The industry project will provide a job role analysis for workers in the oil and gas sector and outcomes will inform and provide significant insight for further training package development. This request was supported by the Process Manufacturing, Recreational Vehicles and Laboratory IRC and the project timelines have been extended to September 2018.
