Polymer Processing Certificate Part 3 Material covered has been aligned to the content of an NVQ at Level 3 and can be used as underpinning knowledge towards achieving the award, if so desired.

Individual candidate knowledge levels are assessed at the end of the training programme and a management report is provided to help identify further training requirements or career progression possibilities. This is a PTIC assessment of knowledge for the injection moulding process but candidates can then progress towards achievement of their PTIC Approved Technicians Award by successfully completing a further practical assessment
