Description

This qualification covers the skills and knowledge required for a detail draftsperson producing specialist engineering drawings within an engineering or manufacturing work environment.

Application 

The qualification has been developed with manufacturing and engineering-related industry sectors as a focus and may be packaged to meet the specific needs of drafting in mechanical and machine construction and maintenance, steel fabrication, other fabrication services and assembly, mechanical services, electrical services, fluid power, piping assembly, and so on.

Application of this qualification involves producing detail drawings according to engineering design intent and required Australian Standards (AS). Skills required include use of computer-aided design (CAD) software functions and ability to apply industry and discipline specific knowledge to produce models, drawings and schematics for specialised engineering-related areas of industry. Skills required include knowledge of engineering principles for the specialised area as well as mathematics together with appropriate drafting skills. The qualification applies to drawings produced to specifications required by designers and to all relevant standards, including AS 1100.101–1992 Technical drawing – General principles. Skills covered may also include information gathering, such as on-site visits, calculations, consultations and research.
