This course is for people who need the competencies to work at the
intermediate production operator level in manufacturing, engineering and
related industry areas.
You will acquire skills and knowledge in workplace communication, occupational
health and safety, quality procedures systems and planning, engineering

Course outcomes and careers
Operator-production worker or operator-process worker at level C11 under the
Metal, Engineering and Associated Industries Award.
Students may enter this course directly. They would normally be expected to be
in, or seeking relevant employment. They may proceed to higher level
qualifications within this training package as explained in Section 7.1.
If students have undertaken this qualification with the support of their
employer it would be expected that they would be employed in positions at AQF
II (level C11 in the Metal, Engineering and Associated Industries Award) in the
When you finish this course you may be eligible to enrol in other courses in
the MEM05 Metal and Engineering Training Package.
This qualification covers the skills and knowledge required of workers employed
as Engineering/ Manufacturing Employees - Level IV as defined in the
Manufacturing and Associated Industries and Occupations Award or in related
industries where Engineering/ Manufacturing Employees work.
The qualification has been specifically developed to reflect the minimum
training requirement specified in the Award for employment in the above
occupation. The qualification packaging has been developed on an assumption that
competency will be developed through a combination of on and off-the-job
learning strategies such as those delivered through a formal traineeship. The
qualification may also be achieved through formal skills recognition assessment
This qualification is designed to provide an industry recognised skills profile
related to production work as an Engineering/ Manufacturing Employee - Level IV.
Competency development would typically be undertaken through an Australian
Apprenticeships arrangement where the integration of on and off-the-job training
would be specified in the Training Plan associated with the Contract of Training
between the employer and trainee.
Assessment of some units of competency must, where indicated, include evidence
of the candidate's performance in a productive work environment where there is a
sufficient range of appropriate tasks and/or materials to cover the scope of
application of those units. All outcomes must reflect the standard of
performance required of the work associated with the Unit/s.
This qualification is not suited and should not be used for people who are not
employed in an engineering production or manufacturing environment. It is not
suited and should not be used for school students unless they are formally
engaged in a traineeship in accordance with the Australian Apprenticeships
