The  Process Manufacturing, Recreational Vehicle and Laboratory (PMRVL) Industry Reference Committee (IRC), supported by IBSA Manufacturing, undertook a review to update the PMB Plastics, Rubber and Cablemaking Training Package components to address overly broad qualifications that do not meet industry needs.

Milestones

Refer to the Case for Change for information about research undertaken to support this project. The Case for Endorsement, Companion Volume Implementation Guide and Project Components have received endorsement from the AISC and the Skills Committee. Release 2.0 of the PMB Plastics, Rubber and Cablemaking Training Package is now available on the National Register of VET, training.gov.au. Thank you to the industry experts and the Process Manufacturing, Recreational Vehicle and Laboratory IRC who gave so freely of their time to shape the changes. Thank you also to all stakeholders who provided comment throughout the project.

This project updated the following qualifications and 178 associated units to include skills and knowledge requirements to support contemporary job roles in the polymers industry.

  • PMB20116 Certificate II in Polymer Processing
  • PMB30116 Certificate III in Polymer Processing
  • PMB40116 Certificate IV in Polymer Technology
  • PMB50116 Diploma of Polymer Technology
  • PMB60116 Advanced Diploma of Polymer Technology
