Revision of Glass Container Manufacturing qualification


National Certificate in Glass Container Manufacturing (Level 2) with strands in Batch and Furnace, Forming, Job Change, Quality Control, and Mould Repair [Ref: 1359]


The Plastics and Materials Processing Industry Training Organisation (PaMPITO) has revised the qualification above.


Date new version published                                                             August 2013


Reason for the revision


This qualification is currently under review in the TRoQ process in 2013.  However, as the review process has been drawn out, this qualification has been revised on the request of the key stakeholder so that current enrolments are able to complete the qualification.  The quality control strand contained a standard that was a barrier to achievement.


Main changes resulting from the revision


Changes to structure and content:

·         Standard 23064 has been removed from the Quality Control strand as it has been a barrier to qualification achievement.  This standard has not been replaced.




All existing candidates undertaking the Quality Control strand will be transferred to version 3 of the qualification in order to complete the qualification requirements.  All other candidates may complete the version they have enrolled in, or transfer their achievement to the current version.


PaMPITO has endeavoured to ensure that no person has been disadvantaged by this review.  Anyone who thinks that they have been disadvantaged should, in the first instance, contact the ITO at the address below.
