The skills standards and qualifications for the pulp and paper industry have been grouped under the PPM Pulp and Paper Manufacturing Industry Training Package
The PPM training package includes nationally recognised qualifications to support job roles in our industry – please see these listed below.
It also includes units of competency, skill sets and a Companion Volume, to assist RTOs with the implementation of these standards.
Advances in technology and the development of new paper products mean workers in the pulp and paper industry require different and more sophisticated skills. The Pulp and Paper Manufacturing Industry Reference Committee (IRC) guides the development of qualifications that cover the spectrum of job roles in our industry – from Certificates I, II, II and IV, to Diploma and Advanced Diploma. ForestWorks has a role in facilitating this process.
