Required Skills and Knowledge

REQUIRED SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE 

This section describes the skills and knowledge required for this unit.

Required skills 

  • collect, organise and understand information related to work orders, plans and safety procedures for fabricating and installing canvas products
  • communicate ideas and information to enable confirmation of work requirements and specifications, coordination of work with worksite supervisor, other workers and customers, and the reporting of work outcomes and problems
  • plan and organise activities, including preparation and layout of worksite and obtaining of equipment and materials to avoid backtracking, workflow interruptions or wastage
  • work with others and in a team by recognising dependencies and using cooperative approaches to optimise workflow and productivity
  • use mathematical ideas and techniques to complete measurements and estimate material requirements for the work
  • use pre-checking and inspection techniques to anticipate planning and scheduling problems, avoid wastage of time and material
  • use workplace technology related to accessing, interpreting and applying technical information and using tooling and equipment, and fabricating and installing canvas products

Required knowledge 

A working knowledge of:

  • WHS regulations/requirements and personal safety requirements
  • equipment safety requirements
  • types, characteristics and applications of canvas
  • adhesives/glues/material safety data sheets information
  • job planning and drawing
  • production methods and procedures, including measuring, marking out, cutting and make up/assembly of canvas products

Evidence Guide

EVIDENCE GUIDE 

The evidence guide provides advice on assessment and must be read in conjunction with the performance criteria, required skills and knowledge, range statement and the Assessment Guidelines for the Training Package.

Overview of assessment 

Critical aspects for assessment and evidence required to demonstrate competency in this unit 

It is essential that competence is fully observed and there is ability to transfer competence to changing circumstances and to respond to unusual situations in the critical aspects of:

  • observing safety procedures and requirements
  • communicating effectively with others involved in or affected by the work
  • selecting methods and techniques appropriate to the circumstances
  • completing preparatory activity in a systematic manner
  • applying WHS policy and procedures
  • operating machinery
  • measuring, marking out, cutting and making up/ assembling a range of canvas products
  • installing a range of canvas products
  • completing post-activity housekeeping.

Context of , and specific resources for assessment 

Application of competence is to be assessed in the workplace or simulated worksite.

Assessment is to occur using standard and authorised work practices, safety requirements and environmental constraints.

Assessment is to comply with regulatory requirements, including Australian Standards.

The following resources should be made available:

  • workplace location or simulated workplace
  • materials relevant to fabricating and installing canvas products
  • equipment, hand and power tooling appropriate to fabricating and installing canvas products
  • activities covering mandatory task requirements
  • specifications and work instructions.

Method of assessment 

  • Assessment must satisfy the endorsed assessment guidelines of the automotive industry's RS&R Training Package.
  • Assessment methods must confirm consistency and accuracy of performance together with application of underpinning knowledge.
  • Assessment must be by direct observation of tasks, with questioning on underpinning knowledge and it must also reinforce the integration of key competencies.
  • Assessment may be applied under project related conditions and require evidence of process.
  • Assessment must confirm a reasonable inference that competence is able not only to be satisfied under the particular circumstance, but is able to be transferred to other circumstances.
  • It is preferable that assessment reflects a process rather than an event and occurs over a period of time to cover varying quality circumstances. Evidence of performance may be provided by customers, team leaders/members or other persons subject to agreed authentication arrangements.
  • Competence in this unit may be assessed in conjunction with other functional units which together form part of the holistic work role.
