The standard covers the most important aspects of the job. This qualification is at Level 3, although there may be units at different levels, and should be taken by those who are experienced Glass Processors, capable of dealing with a wide range of issues, including the identification and rectification of technical problems and working with a wide range of glass types. Candidates may be required to show the skills and knowledge to assess products or work procedures and identify possible improvements, and may also be responsible for setting up Glass Processing machinery.
