It is a technical qualification for technologists or para-professionals who undertake technical projects such as plant modifications, energy and mass balances, risk management & safety cases 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 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).
