Description: Certificate II in Wine Industry Operations is designed for people who work or want to work in the wine industry in grapegrowing, cellar operations, laboratory operations, bottling and packaging or cellar door sales. You will develop the basic skills you need to safely and competently undertake work in this industry. You will also learn how to apply food safety principles and follow quality assurance and OHS practices.

As part of the Australian Qualifications Framework this program is nationally recognised. On successful completion students will be awarded the Certificate II in Wine Industry Operations.

This qualification is part of the Food Processing Industry Training Package, Wine stream. It is designed with a practical emphasis and will require industry placement or employment to achieve a qualification. An academic pass can be issued for completion of the underpinning knowledge component. Students can undertake studies in viticulture, cellar door sales, cellar operations, bottling and packaging, or laboratory operations. While programs are streamed to individual sectors, program units can be chosen across streams. At this level training involves developing operational knowledge and higher skills for solving a variety of straightforward work-based problems with limited supervision.

Subjects vary according to individual enterprise practices and learner preference. A program will be tailored to meet your needs.

Core Units are compulsory for all streams and include: Communication skills, OH&S, Food safety (HACCP), Quality assurance and Environmental Sustainability.

Specialist and optional units are stream specific, but units from different streams can be included in the qualification to suit the job role of the learner. For example, a bottling line worker may require skills in cleaning and sanitising, wine transfers and filtration, filling and sealing operations and also help out in wine sales. Units are selected from the cellar and bottling streams and the units provide responsible service of alcohol and evaluate wine from the cellar door stream are included.

Applications: A Certificate II provides a solid skill base for wine industry workers approaching their grade 3 classification. There are five streams which target wine industry workers from Cellar operations, Viticulture, Bottling and Packaging, Laboratory operations and Cellar Door Sales. There is also a Warehouse option which can be customised for winery workers. Participants may apply for recognition of prior Learning (RPL) for any unit/s from the training plan where he or she may have previously acquired the required skills and knowledge relating to the unit/s.

After completing the Certificate II in Wine Industry Operations you may wish to undertake a Certificate III to take you to a supervisory level with industry recognition at grade 4.

As access to an operating winery, bottling facility or vineyard is essential to achieve the qualification you will typically be employed as a cellarhand, vineyard operator, bottling line worker, laboratory technician or cellar door salesperson. However, pre-vintage and pre-employment programs are also offered where relevant work experience is included in the training.

You may enter the qualification with limited or no vocational experience. Lower level qualifications are nested within the Certificate II qualification. We assume you will have language, literacy and numeracy skills equivalent to Year 10 education, but will attempt to support you if there are any barriers to learning.

Learner literacy, language and numeracy level will be considered during an interview process prior to enrolment. Where appropriate a learner may be advised to undertake training in relevant basic skills prior to entry into the Certificate II in Wine Industry Operations. RMT will counsel the learner on options available locally and online to do this. This may incur additional costs.
