Details

IBSA Manufacturing was pleased to support the Process Manufacturing, Recreational Vehicle and Laboratory Industry Reference Committee (IRC) in undertaking a review of the MSM Manufacturing Training Package.

The scope of this project was to develop one new unit covering the skills and knowledge required to fabricate and install frame structures. However, during consultation it became clear that splitting the content into two units better reflected industry needs. These are key units being used for training in the caravan industry and are critical to the construction and repair of caravans.

The new units will be listed in MSM31115 Certificate III in Recreational Vehicle Manufacturing and MSM31015 Certificate III in Recreational Vehicle Service and Repair.
