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 prepare coatings and adhesives according to job specifications
  • prepare TWO different coatings or adhesives for specific end-use requirements to meet job and workplace specifications.

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:

  • summarise selection of coatings/adhesives to match process and job requirements
  • describe how to determine suitability of the coatings/adhesives for the particular process
  • explain how characteristics of coatings/adhesives are matched to the job/substrate
  • explain how to determine if coatings/adhesives adhere to the substrate
  • identify health and safety concerns related to preparation, handling and storage of coatings/adhesives
  • outline correct handling procedures
  • describe details required to calculate quantities of coatings/adhesives
  • describe details required to record the formulation of coatings/adhesives
  • identify environmental conditions relevant to the storage of coatings/adhesives
  • outline conventions for labelling coatings/adhesives
  • identify required manuals, safety and other documentation and briefly outline the relevant information in each source.

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 Support field of work and include access to coatings, adhesives and substrates.

Assessors must satisfy NVR/AQTF assessor requirements.
