The PMA20116 Certificate II in Process Plant Operations is a technical qualification for operators in the hydrocarbons, petrochemical, chemical, metal/ore processing and related process manufacturing industry sectors.
This course is best suited for workers 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.
Students will undertake theory assessments and hands on practicals in their workplace or in a simulated environment. To gain a qualification students will need to complete 5 core units and 11 elective units (see the following page for units).
With theory online and practicals in the workplace or simulated environment, this course takes approximately 6-12 months to complete.Enrol Now RPL Enquiry
