This qualification is aimed at those who undertake activities in the flat glass manufacturing sector. This includes the receiving and batching of raw materials before they are processed, and the control of heating equipment to melt and form glass from the raw materials.
It is not expected that candidates working in glass manufacturing all do the same activities: the qualification is structured to ensure that there is a high degree of flexibility in the qualification.
The standard covers the most important aspects of the job. This qualification is at Level 2, although some units may be at different levels, and should be taken by those who are fully trained to deal with routine assignments. Candidates should require minimum supervision in undertaking the job.
A further qualification that covers Glass Manufacturing at Level 3 is also available.
Candidates for this qualification will primarily be:
