Certificate II in Process
Plant Operations

This qualification is typically used to prepare new employees or develop existing workers performing an operational role in the chemical, hydrocarbons or refining sectors.

The PMA20113 Certificate II in Process Plant Operations has been developed as a technical qualification for use in the PMA08 Chemical, Hydrocarbons and Refining Training Package.
The PMA20113 Certificate II in Process Plant Operations is intended for competent operators who operate production equipment or undertake similar roles directly producing products. The operator would apply a breadth and depth of knowledge to a defined range of situations and would be expected to apply this knowledge to solve a defined range of problems by applying known solutions to a limited range of predictable problems.
Other non-technical Certificates II are available for production support employees at this level, such as MSA20107 Certificate II in Process Manufacturing. This certificate should be used where the job requirements do not allow for the development of competency in sufficient technical units of competency. The MSA21108 Certificate II in Competitive Manufacturing is also available for employees at this level where the job requires sophisticated manufacturing practice skills rather than technical skills.
