Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 2

This version first released with CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package Release 5.1.

Rectified to reflect endorsed version.

Release 1

This version first released with CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package Release 5.0.

Supersedes and is equivalent to CPCCCM1015 Carry out measurements and calculations. Updated to reflect current industry terminology, tools and equipment.

Application

This unit of competency specifies the skills and knowledge required to undertake basic measurements and calculations to determine task and material requirements in a construction work environment.

A person working at this level would be expected to complete tasks assigned to them, under supervision.

Completion of the general construction induction training program specified by the model Code of Practice for Construction Work is required for any person who is to carry out construction work. Achievement of CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry meets this requirement.

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

Pre-requisite Unit
