Evidence Guide

EVIDENCE GUIDE 

The Evidence Guide provides advice on assessment and must be read in conjunction with the performance criteria, required skills and knowledge, range statement and the Assessment Guidelines for the Training Package.

Overview of assessment 

Critical aspects for assessment and evidence required to demonstrate competency in this unit 

Evidence of the ability to:

  • produce a basic coated product on either a reel- or sheet-fed machine ensuring an efficient production flow that maintains product quality standards. Any production problems are identified and rectified with minimum downtime. The machine is correctly shut down and cleaned according to OHS guidelines
  • demonstrate use of computerised control, monitoring and data entry systems if available and appropriate
  • demonstrate an ability to find and use information relevant to the task from a variety of information sources
  • competency on elements and performance criteria is achieved within the limitations of the process or machinery used
  • produce TWO basic coating jobs (one spot coating and one overall coating and if possible including at least ONE in-line process) according to job specifications, enterprise procedures and the Performance Criteria
  • evidence for assessment may be gathered from assessment of the unit of competency alone or through an integrated assessment activity.

Context of and specific resources for assessment 

Assessment must ensure:

  • assessment may take place on the job, off the job or a combination of these. Off the job assessment must be undertaken in a closely simulated workplace environment
  • a print machine or a dedicated coating machine.

Method of assessment 

A range of assessment methods should be used to assess practical skills and knowledge. The following examples are appropriate for this unit:

  • direct questioning combined with review of portfolios of evidence and third party workplace reports of on-the-job performance by the candidate.

Guidance information for assessment 

Holistic assessment with other units relevant to the industry sector, workplace and job role is recommended, for example:

  • ICPSU201C Prepare, load and unload reels and cores on and off machine
  • ICPSU202C Prepare, load and unload product on and off machine
  • ICPSU208C Operate and monitor machines (basic)
  • ICPPR271C Set up for basic coating.

Range Statement

RANGE STATEMENT 

The range statement relates to the unit of competency as a whole. It allows for different work environments and situations that may affect performance. Bold italicised wording, if used in the performance criteria, is detailed below. Essential operating conditions that may be present with training and assessment (depending on the work situation, needs of the candidate, accessibility of the item, and local industry and regional contexts) may also be included.

Substrate handling  may include:

  • narrow or wide reel handling, and small and large sheet systems.

Machines  may include:

  • a range of printing machines or dedicated coating machines with manual, semi-automated, fully automated or computerised process control.

Coatings  may include:

  • a range of aqueous coatings, UV varnishes and machine varnishes.

In -line processes  may include:

  • minor processes that are integral to this competency can include basic in-line operations such as perforating, numbering, date coding, slitting that do not in themselves constitute another defined unit of competency. Where a major in-line process is defined as a separate competency (eg flat-bed cutting, folding) it should be assessed as such.

Colour matching systems  may include:

  • use of visual colour assessment and densitometry to match basic standard tints under controlled lighting conditions.

Substrate types  may include:

  • paper and paper board and other substrates as appropriate.
