Release 1

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

Performance Evidence

Evidence of the ability to:

  • correctly operate and monitor machines according to job and enterprise requirements
  • demonstrate knowledge of all safety devices on the machine
  • operate, monitor, shut down and clean any ONE machine according to manufacturer s specifications under the supervision of, or in conjunction with, a worker with the appropriate skills.

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:

  • handling of supplies, parts and finished product
  • explain how to avoid back strain when lifting heavy objects
  • explain how to avoid damaging finished product
  • identify supplies that require special handling

For reel systems only 

  • identify area of the web control system to adjust to maintain correct web tension

For sheet systems only 

  • outline areas of the transport and delivery systems to monitor to ensure trouble-free operation
  • describe what to check when removing a substrate from the machine

Maintaining production processes 

  • outline the basic criteria for assessing finished product
  • list adjustments to the machine to correct TWO different production or quality problems

Shutdown procedures 

  • list areas of the machine that are modified during shutdown
  • identify areas of the machine to check for possible repair
