The PMA02 Training Package is the accredited, industry based competency standard for the chemical, hydrocarbons and oil refining (including the offshore/onshore upstream oil and gas) sector. These competencies are aligned to industry requirements and have been developed with significant input from industry groups and relevant subject matter experts.
Recent regulations governing the chemical, hydrocarbons and oil refining industries have sought the demonstration of competency, rather than just attendance at training, as the most appropriate method for managing safety in the workplace. The regulations look for compliance through the identification of competencies relating to the risks present at the workplace (as identified through the Safety Case regime).
By providing a demonstrable process through which employees have achieved the appropriate national industry standards, operators demonstrate compliance, reduce risk, motivate workers and gain significant savings in training budgets.
As an assessor of PMA02 competencies, MOXI can provide appropriate recognition of existing skills and competency and, for individuals, an applicable qualification. In most cases where an operator has an experienced, but unrecognised workforce, staff will be able to demonstrate a range of relevant competencies they currently hold through working on site.
To match existing competencies to PMA02, MOXI provides a management process of mapping competency standards at workplaces, assessment of compliance and provides, where necessary, training to meet individual requirements. Training can be delivered on site using relevant examples at the workplace. All training is tailored to suit the operational environment of the site, whether it is offshore or onshore, above or below ground, refining, processing or combinations of any of these.
Competencies attained through this process are then linked to appropriate qualifications from AQF Levels 1 – 5 (Certificate I through to Diploma). This enables an operator to ensure work roles within a site are aligned to relevant task, skill and job levels, including supervisory or management roles. Coordination of work roles and career paths provided by MOXI give clients the ability to train, and more importantly, retain essential staff in the current climate of skills shortages.
