PMC Manufactured Mineral Products

The manufactured mineral products industry uses minerals sourced from the extractive industries, such as quarrying, to produce a range of products used by other downstream industries. It has close links to the construction industry with all of its principal products used in that sector. Its products are also used in most other industries including building, food and beverage, heavy industry and landscaping.


Enterprises are generally micro or small along with some very large, well-known companies including CSR Limited, Boral Limited and James Hardie Industries. Enterprises are distributed across Australia aligning somewhat with the population distribution.


While there are no general licensing issues, licensing arrangements are consistent with relevant legislation and regulations applying in each State and Territory.

Sector Overview

 

The Australian manufactured mineral products industry includes a diverse range of areas which use minerals sourced from the extractive industries, such as quarrying. These minerals are used to produce a range of products which are used by other downstream industries, such as building and construction, food and beverage, heavy industry, automotive and landscaping


There are six qualifications in the PMC Manufactured Mineral Products Training Package ranging from Certificate II to Graduate Certificate level.

Industry Reference Committee (IRC)

Industry Reference Committees (IRCs) are the formal channel for considering industry skills requirements in the development and review of training packages.

Each IRC is made up of people with close links to industry. They are leaders in their own sectors from big business to small enterprise and peak bodies to unions, who understand the skills needs of their sector, industry or occupation.

IRCs ensure training packages meet the needs and concerns of employers, employees, training providers, and people seeking training qualifications.

IRCs gather information to help develop and review training packages, ensuring the national training system provides the qualifications, knowledge and skill sets that industry needs.

Each IRC is supported by a Skills Service Organisation (SSO) to help them in their work. 

Skills Service Organisations (SSO)

Skills Service Organisations (SSOs) are independent, professional service organisations that support IRCs in their work developing and reviewing training packages.

SSOs support industry engagement while remaining independent from both industry and the training sector.

SSOs prepare documents, such as the skills forecast and proposed schedule of work, and assist with training package development and review.

SSOs are a key access point for other industry stakeholders who want to play a part in the development of training packages.
