Release 1

This version first released with ICP Printing and Graphic Arts Training Package Version 1.0.

Performance Evidence

Evidence of the ability to:

  • set up and monitor in-line printing operations that tend to be complex in nature and incorporated into other printing processes
  • set up and monitor one or more in-line processes on TWO occasions according to job specifications, enterprise procedures and performance criteria.

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:

  • identify important information from the job ticket
  • explain what to do if vital information is missing from the job ticket
  • describe devices to control the substrate in the in-line unit
  • list problems typically caused by an incorrectly set transportation section
  • discuss any work health and safety (WHS) concerns of setting up the in-line unit
  • identify what other parts of the machine need to be set up prior to the in-line unit
  • name parts of the in-line unit responsible for position
  • outline precautions to be observed when setting the impression
  • list checks to perform after a proof run on any in-line operation or process
  • name the person to notify if there is a problem with any aspect of the job during make ready
  • describe methods used to minimise waste during make ready
  • describe signs of wear of the image carrier
  • describe how printed material should be marked by the operator if it is below acceptable standard
  • list print faults the operator identifies during the print run
  • describe how frequently product quality should be assessed
  • list WHS requirements to be observed during machine shutdown
  • discuss what areas of the in-line unit may require repair
  • explain how to determine workflow of the product
  • name the person responsible for the repair of the machine
  • outline procedures to be observed when storing image carriers or cutting devices
  • discuss WHS concerns of storing cutting devices
  • discuss procedures for disposal of liquid waste
  • describe specific components of the in-line unit to be cleaned thoroughly
  • discuss the effect on machine production if components are not cleaned thoroughly following print run
  • outline what can happen if production information is not completed on the job ticket
  • identify records to be completed in the event of a reprint or repeat print run.

Assessment Conditions

Gather evidence to demonstrate consistent performance in conditions that are safe and replicate the workplace. Noise levels, production flow, interruptions and time variances must be typical of those experienced in the printing field of work and include access to:

  • special purpose tools, equipment and materials
  • reel or sheet-fed machine.

Assessors must satisfy NVR/AQTF assessor requirements.
