The PMB50116 Diploma of Polymer Technology is intended for technologists and those in similar paraprofessional roles in the plastics, rubber and cablemaking sectors.
The technologist will apply in-depth knowledge of materials, process, equipment and problem solving to analyse performance and failure in equipment and products and to assist in the development of new/modified products. They are not required to be competent to operate production equipment but will understand the principles behind the relevant production and support processes.
The technologist may be largely based in a laboratory or office but may conduct some of their work in or through the shop floor.
This qualification applies to the production of a wide range of polymer products and components ranging from consumer products to components to be included in other commercial, industrial or consumer products. Products may be made from a wide range of natural and synthetic polymers covering thermoplastics as well as thermosetting polymers. Production may be long runs of standard products, short runs or ‘one offs’ of specialised products.
For people who require a more generalist qualification covering the application of good manufacturing practice and lean principles see MSS50316 Diploma of Competitive Systems and Practices.
There are no specific licences that relate to this qualification. However, units of competency in this qualification may provide the underpinning knowledge and skills required for licences in some jurisdictions. Local regulations should be checked for details.
