Application

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to investigate specialised imaging technologies and their application in photo imaging practice.

It applies to individuals who create innovative images using specialised imaging technologies. They may be engaged in scientific, forensic, geographical, exploratory and other industry areas. At this level work is usually carried out independently, with supervision or guidance available as required.

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

Unit Sector

Visual communication – photo imaging

Release 1

This version first released with CUA Creative Arts and Culture Training Package version 2.0.

Performance Evidence

Evidence of the ability to:

  • create a body of photo images experimenting with, and applying, specialised imaging technologies around a specific theme or subject matter
  • document specialised imaging processes for use in future contexts
  • evaluate own performance for improvement.

Note: If a specific volume or frequency is not stated, then evidence must be provided at least once.

Knowledge Evidence

To complete the unit requirements safely and effectively, the individual must:

  • describe a range of specialised imaging technologies, their attributes and their applications
  • outline the history of the development of photo imaging technologies
  • explain the opportunities offered by imaging technology to represent the subject matter in different ways
  • explain the health and safety considerations associated with imaging technology.

Assessment Conditions

Assessment must be conducted in a safe environment where evidence gathered demonstrates consistent performance of typical activities experienced in creative arts industry environments. The assessment environment must include access to:

  • specialised image technologies
  • sources of information on historical and contemporary imaging technology and techniques.

Assessors of this unit must satisfy the requirements for assessors in applicable vocational educational and training legislation, frameworks and/or standards.
