Candidates must be able to demonstrate existing knowledge levels through either passing the IMT2 end of course assessment or having achieved an NVQ Level 2 or having completed our pre-course questionnaire and achieved a score of 70% or above. 

Specifically designed to address the needs of people requiring high-level skills in configuring and optimising the injection moulding process.

In particular:

  • Setters
  • Process Engineers
  • Technicians and Multi-Skilled Engineers

On completion of the course, the delegates will be able to:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of safety requirements for injection moulding and use safe working practices
  • Describe the construction of an injection moulding machine, the function of component parts and process parameters
  • Set up clamping units on a range of injection moulding machines
  • Demonstrate an understanding of mould tool design, quality systems and machine control methods
  • Carry out initial set-up of the injection unit using a systematic procedure
  • Start-up and shut-down an injection moulding machine safely and efficiently
  • Recognise common product faults
  • Demonstrate an understanding of plastics material technology
  • Recognise a range of product faults, identify possible causes and select appropriate remedies
  • Carry out a complete set-up from zero
  • Undertake machine condition setting in a logical and systematic manner
  • Complete a full mould trial applying logical and systematic procedures
  • Maximise product quality and output rates

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
