Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1.

Replaces superseded equivalent CPPSIS4036A Operate spatial software applications.

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

Application

This unit of competency specifies the outcomes required to operate spatial software applications to produce, name and store spatial documents. The unit covers planning work tasks and selecting suitable software and equipment to meet task requirements. The unit requires the ability to use a computer and the features, tools and functions of different software applications to present, calculate and check spatial information.

The unit supports those who work as part of a surveying and spatial information services team in a range of support positions.

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

Pre-requisite Unit

Nil

Unit Sector

Surveying and spatial information services

  • apply control structures, including:
  • acceptance criteria
  • inspection
  • review
  • test plans
  • apply different spatial software applications to use the following tools and features:
  • alignment
  • clip art
  • comments
  • digital photographs
  • digital signatures
  • display features
  • embedding
  • exporting
  • fields
  • fills and shading
  • formulas
  • importing
  • lines and borders
  • linking
  • merging and splitting cells
  • page and section breaks
  • permissions
  • reviewing
  • sharing
  • sort criteria
  • spell check
  • table of contents
  • templates
  • text direction
  • versioning
  • identify and resolve problems with spatial data and documents
  • comply with organisational requirements relating to:
