The Advanced Diploma of Process Plant Technology PMA60116 is an advanced post-trade qualification for industry professionals looking to advance their career standing and/or take on further education at a university level.
It is a technical qualification for technologists or para-professionals who undertake technical projects such as plant modifications either individually or as part of a project team where they have a significant technical role. They may have worked their way up through the process plant operation/technology certificate and diploma qualifications or may have entered the industry at this level, either from another industry or trade occupation.
The course is competency-based, which requires those undertaking the training to prove competence by completing practical assessments in the work place, as well as showing theoretical competence.
The Advanced Diploma is accredited by Engineers Australia, the largest and most diverse professional body for engineers in the nation. It is eligible for advanced standing at Edith Cowan University (1.5 years) or Curtin University (1 year).
