Elements and Performance Criteria

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe what needs to be done to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1. Plan and prepare to finish concrete.

1.1 Review and clarify task to finish concrete.

1.2 Review task specifications and check to make sure they are in accordance with legislation, regulations and codes of practice.
