Unit of competency

Modification History

Release 1

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

Supersedes and is equivalent to CPCCCO3051 Conduct off-form vertical concrete operations.

Application

This unit of competency specifies the skills and knowledge required to prepare and apply concrete to slip-form or jump-form structures in the construction of multi storey buildings. It includes sequencing, placing and compacting concrete in formwork.

A person who has achieved this unit of competency would be expected to take responsibility for organising and completing these tasks with a high degree of self-direction.

Licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements apply to this unit of competency in some states and territories. For further information, check with the relevant regulatory authority.

Completion of the general construction induction training program, specified in the Safe Work Australia model Code of Practice: Construction Work, is required by anyone carrying out construction work. Achievement of CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry meets this requirement.

Pre-requisite Unit

CPCCWHS2001 Apply WHS requirements, policies and procedures in the construction industry

Unit Sector

Concreting
