Engineering production workers mostly perform repetitive tasks on articles passing along the production line. Often factories will rotate their staff so that they are not doing the same task for too long and so that the staff are multi-skilled across production operations.
Process workers are employed by a wide range of manufacturing and processing companies, in metropolitan areas and in larger country towns. Much-most of their work takes place on the production line or on the factory floor. Most modern factories, whilst sometimes noisy (protective equipment is supplied), are well lit and clean.
You can sometimes work as an engineering production worker without undertaking any formal training or qualifications however some employers will prefer that you do. To work as an as an engineering production worker you will usually require a Certificate II in Engineering
With experience, and possibly some further engineering production workers can become team leaders, machine setter-operators, and CAM (computer aided machine) programmers. This usually requires Certificate III in Engineering (Production Systems)
Of course, with further experience and training you might work in occupations such as technician, quality assurance, or in robotics systems, and you can continue to progress along a career pathway that could see you in many senior management positions.
