Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1.

Replaces superseded equivalent CPPSIS2015A Assist in field activity.

This version first released with CPP Property Services Training Package Version 3.

Application

This unit of competency specifies the outcomes required to assist members of a surveying and spatial information services team by carrying out field support tasks as directed. The unit covers preparing for work by clarifying tasks and equipment to be used, including personal protective equipment (PPE). The unit also covers participating in a range of support activities, including identifying and marking surface positions; and using and storing tools and equipment. It covers restoring the work site after tasks are completed, and checking tools and equipment to report faults or problems. The unit requires the ability to follow instructions and communicate with team members to clarify work tasks, and apply mathematical concepts used for distance measurements and calculations.

The unit supports those who work under direct supervision in a surveying and spatial information services team, in positions relating to field support and administration.

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

This version first released with CPP Property Services Training Package Version 3.

Performance Evidence

A person demonstrating competency in this unit must satisfy the requirements of the elements, performance criteria, foundation skills and range of conditions of this unit. The person must also follow procedures and instructions to assist with field support activities in two projects in the surveying and spatial field.

For each project, the person must use safety equipment, including personal protective equipment (PPE), and a communication device, such as ultra-high frequency radio.

The person must also use four of the following:

  • compass
  • data recording equipment
  • digital or hard copy map
  • distance measuring wheel
  • level
  • measuring instruments
  • scientific calculator
  • hand-held laser measuring device.

While assisting in the above field support activities, the person must:

  • use and check tools and equipment to identify faults or problems
  • communicate clearly with others to clarify work tasks and report problems
  • comply with organisational and manufacturer requirements in order to work safely and protect the environment
  • cooperate with team members to follow instructions
  • follow procedures to identify and mark surface positions
  • report problems and seek assistance with work tasks
  • assist in restoring work site to as near as practicable to original condition after field activities are completed.

Knowledge Evidence

A person demonstrating competency in this unit must demonstrate knowledge of:

  • industry-accepted standards and practices for marking surface positions and measuring and recording basic spatial data
  • organisational policies and procedures covering work tasks relating to field projects, including reporting and equipment use and maintenance
  • purpose of and storage procedures for the tools and equipment required in above field activities
  • site restoration and waste disposal procedures
  • work health and safety procedures relating to field support activities, including required PPE.

Assessment Conditions

The following must be present and available to learners during assessment activities:
