Performance Evidence

Evidence of the ability to:

  • select appropriate software and file formats
  • create mailing list and merge with another document
  • manipulate and integrate data between commercial application software following organisational procedures.

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:
