Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1.

This version first released with CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package Version 2.

Revised unit of competency. Replaces superseded equivalent unit CPCCCM2006B Apply basic levelling procedures.

Application

This unit of competency specifies the outcomes required to carry out levelling in a single plane for the purpose of establishing correct and accurate set-out of building components. It includes the set-up, testing and use of levelling devices, and establishing and transferring heights using a range of levelling equipment.

The unit supports workers in the construction industry who use a variety of common methods and equipment when working with others and as a member of a team. It applies to levelling work on residential and commercial work sites.

No licensing, legislative, regulatory, or certification requirements apply to this unit of competency at the time of endorsement.

Assessment requirements

Modification History

Release 1.

This version first released with CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package Version 2.

Revised unit of competency. Replaces superseded equivalent unit CPCCCM2006B Apply basic levelling procedures.

Performance Evidence

A person who demonstrates competency in this unit must satisfy all of the elements, performance criteria and foundation skills of this unit. The person must also transfer levels and record differences in height for three different projects as required by job specifications, using at least three of the following levelling devices:

  • a spirit level and straight edge
  • automatic/optical levelling device
  • levelling with water technique
  • laser levelling device.

In doing the above work, the person must:

  • conduct a two peg test with an automatic/optical level to confirm that the instrument meets manufacturer tolerances
  • locate, interpret and apply relevant information in job specifications to the levelling task
  • comply with site safety plan, and health and safety regulations applicable to workplace operations
  • comply with organisational policies and procedures, including quality requirements
  • safely and effectively use tools and equipment
  • communicate and work effectively and safely with others, including using agreed communication signals
  • confirm accuracy of the readings taken, including set-up and movement of device in two locations
  • accurately record results of each levelling procedure according to organisational requirements.

Knowledge Evidence

A person demonstrating competency in this unit must demonstrate knowledge of:

  • characteristics, technical capabilities and limitations of different types of levelling devices
