Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1. New unit.

This version first released with CPP Property Services Training Package Version 1.

Application

This unit of competency specifies the outcomes required to import drawing files and transpose information from drawings prepared by external surveyors, engineers and construction consultants into existing digital building design drawings for residential, commercial and industrial buildings as defined by the Building Code of Australia (BCA), using building information modelling (BIM)-capable building design software.

It also covers understanding and applying functions and options of drawing software for different methods of importing files and for managing elements in imported drawings.

The unit supports the work of drafters who assist and work under the supervision and instruction of architects and building designers and who check drawings and reports for accuracy and compliance with relevant legislation, regulations, codes and standards before importing or transposing into existing drawings; and who then check the integrity and accuracy of the completed drawings.

Licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements apply to building design drafting in some states. Relevant state and territory regulatory authorities should be consulted to confirm those requirements.

  • one Class 1 building
  • one Class 2 building
  • one building selected from Classes 3 to 9.
