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.

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.
