Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1.

Supersedes and equivalent to CPCCCO3054A Operate concrete agitator trucks.

The unit of competency was updated to the Standards for Training Packages 2012.

This version first released with CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package Version 4.0.

Application

This unit of competency specifies the skills and knowledge required to operate concrete agitator trucks in support of construction projects.

It includes:

  • planning and preparing for work
  • conducting operational checks
  • safely and effectively operating a concrete agitator truck and associated equipment
  • positioning the vehicle at the load point
  • loading and transporting concrete
  • discharging concrete at work site
  • applying emergency procedures
  • conducting operator maintenance
  • work finalisation activities.

The unit also includes supplying a range of concrete mixes, from relatively dry to increasingly wet mixes, including block-fill, pool mix, topping, slab, footing, kerb and guttering mixes for residential, commercial and civil construction sites.

It applies to concreters working as members of a team with at least a moderate degree of autonomy. They would be expected to complete routine activities without close supervision.

Licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements apply to this unit of competency in all states and territories except Tasmania. Relevant state and territory regulatory authorities should be consulted to confirm these requirements.
