Application

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to use digital technology to undertake non-routine workplace tasks, such as, operating machinery with computerised settings, entering text into a scanning device, collecting data to construct tables, graphs and charts in a spreadsheet, and measuring, recording and interpreting data using digital equipment.

An individual performing these tasks works independently and uses familiar support resources as needed.

This unit applies to individuals who use, or are preparing to use, digital skills to complete workplace activities. This includes existing workers and individuals preparing for employment through vocational education and training. This unit should be integrated and contextualised with vocational training to support achievement of vocational competency.

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