Update on MEM05 Metal and Engineering Training Package Review
The MEM05 Metal and Engineering Training Package review is nearing completion. Many of the qualifications and units of competency, revised to the current Standards for Training Packages, will be presented for national endorsement shortly. A Case for Endorsement for a new release of the MEM Manufacturing and Engineering Training Package is in final consideration by the Industry Reference Committee. This training package will eventually replace the MEM05 training package. The redevelopment work addressed feedback received from stakeholders and there was an extensive review of the qualification packaging rules and the use of pre-requisite units. New qualifications were also developed to address identified industry specialty needs. Some qualifications are scheduled for further work, including those for technicians and some other specialty areas. These will go into a work plan in the first half of 2017.
