Application

This unit describes the skills required to predict and confirm explosive effects. It includes the requirement to identify the explosive, predict its effects through analysis and identify the explosive. The activity will generally include the test detonation of the explosive using the actual conditions or simulation to confirm the prognosis.

This unit applies to those required to predict the likely effect of the detonation of explosives and then confirm the prognosis.

The skills and knowledge described in this unit must be applied within the legislative, regulatory and policy environment in which they are carried out. Organisational policies and procedures must be consulted and adhered to

Those undertaking this unit would make high level, fully independent judgements, applying a detailed knowledge of explosives, analysing complex data and producing specific documents detailing the outcomes of highly specialised technical functions. They would perform sophisticated tasks in highly specialised operational contexts.

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

Performance Evidence

Evidence required to demonstrate competence in this unit must be relevant to and satisfy all of the requirements of the elements and performance criteria on at least one occasion and includes:

  • interpreting and applying technical instructions
  • operating test equipment
  • conducting appropriate tests
  • interpreting test methods/procedures
  • maintaining security, integrity, traceability of samples, sub-samples, test data and results and documentation

Knowledge Evidence

Evidence required to demonstrate competence in this unit must be relevant to and satisfy all of the requirements of the elements and performance criteria and includes:

  • In-depth knowledge of:
  • characteristics, technical capabilities, effects and limitations of explosives
  • chemical/physical principles and concepts of explosives

Assessment Conditions

Assessors must hold credentials specified within the Standards for Registered Training Organisations current at the time of assessment.

Assessment must satisfy the Principles of Assessment and Rules of Evidence and all regulatory requirements included within the Standards for Registered Training Organisations current at the time of assessment.

Assessment must occur in workplace operational situations. Where this is not appropriate, assessment must occur in simulated workplace operational situations that reflect workplace conditions.

Assessment processes and techniques must be appropriate to the language, literacy and numeracy requirements of the work being performed and the needs of the candidate.

Resources for assessment must include access to:

  • a range of relevant exercises, case studies and/or simulations
