IBSA Manufacturing is pleased to support the Process Manufacturing, Recreational Vehicle and Laboratory Industry Reference Committee (IRC) to undertake the Manufactured Mineral Products 2017 Project.


The Manufactured Mineral Products 2017 Project will involve the development of the following for the Manufacturing Training Package (MSM):

5 new units of competency that meet manufactured mineral products industry requirements

  • Working with materials and processes (concrete technology/precast)
  • Implementing Australian Standards
  • Using batch command control systems
  • Mechanical maintenance for concrete plants
  • Mathematics, measurements and angles

Mapping of current MSM Certificate II, III and IV qualifications, and the PMC qualifications for establishing the MSM Process Manufacturing qualifications as the key industry training outcome to determine gaps and identify implications on packaging rules to accommodate sector needs.

The project will also undertake the following review and development work:

PMC units for repackaging in the MSM Training Package, including:

  • Assessing whether units with between five and 25 national enrolments (over five years) should be deleted
  • Conducting a mapping and comparison exercise of units with above 25 enrolments to determine which PMC units can be replaced with MSM units
  • Reviewing remaining units to ensure they reflect current practice and terminology and appropriate assessment requirements
  • Importing reviewed PMC units into the MSM Training Package

79 units of competency to be reviewed

In addition, the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) requires that IBSA Manufacturing:

This project is due for submission to the Department of Education and Training by  15 June 2018 for the consideration and approval of the Australian Industry and Skills Committee.
