Unit Descriptor

This unit covers the competency required to conduct a visual inspection of packaged explosive ordnance during any handling task, to identify packaging with broken seals and to process the packaging for further action that may be required.

Application of the Unit

This competency normally applies to the individual who is required to conduct a visual inspection of packaged explosive ordnance during any handling task and to process the packaging for further action that may be required.
