About the course

This process plant course is an advanced post-trade qualification for industry professionals looking to advance their career standing and progress to university studies.

It is a 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 qualifications or may have entered the industry 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).

 The course has been developed specifically for people experienced in the industry to gain a qualification based on work experience or prior studies. It is not offered as classroom based delivery.

As part of the course, you will be assessed on your current competencies in areas of petrochemicals, hydrocarbons, chemical, metal/ore processing, oil, gas, smelting, refining, maintenance and manufacturing using Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL).  RPL can allow you to fast track through the course if you consider that your previous work experience or other studies cover the subject matters of units within the PMA Process Plant Operations Training Package.
