Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1. Supersedes and is equivalent to MEM05013C Perform manual production welding

Application

This unit of competency covers the skills and knowledge required to perform production welding, including spot welding, in a production environment.

Guidance may be required with respect to equipment settings, choice of consumables, gas mixtures and pressures.

Where automated/production welding is required to be performed unit MEM07024 Operate and monitor machine and process and unit MEM07025 Perform advanced machine and process operation, should also be selected as appropriate.

Where the interpretation of technical drawings is required unit MEM09002 Interpret technical drawing should also be selected.

Where the selection and use of engineering measurement is required unit MEM12023 Perform engineering measurements should also be selected.

Where the selection and use of tools is required unit MEM18001 Use hand tools and unit MEM18002 Use power tools/hand held operations, should also be selected as appropriate.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.

Assessment requirements

Modification History

Release 1. Supersedes and is equivalent to MEM05013C Perform manual production welding

Performance Evidence

Evidence required to demonstrate competence in this unit must be relevant to and satisfy the requirements of the elements and performance criteria on at least two (2) occasions and include:

  • following work instructions, standard operating procedures (SOPs)and safe work practices
  • preparing and aligning material for welding using dedicated jigs and fixtures
  • performing tacking or production welding in a production environment.

Knowledge Evidence

Evidence required to demonstrate the required knowledge for this unit must be relevant to and satisfy the requirements of the elements and performance criteria and include knowledge of:

  • safe welding practices and procedures and use of personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • function and use of jigs and fixtures in production welding
  • function, application and operation of welding equipment within the scope of this unit
  • material preparation.

Assessment Conditions

  • Assessors must:
  • have vocational competency in performing manual production welding at least to the level being assessed with relevant industry knowledge and experience
  • satisfy the assessor requirements in the Standards for Registered Training Organisations 2015 or its replacementand comply with the National Vocational Education and Training Regulator Act 2011, its replacementor equivalent legislation covering VET regulation in a non-referring state/territory as the case requires
  • Where possible assessment must occur in operational workplace situations. Where this is not possible or where personal safety or environmental damage are limiting factors, assessment must occur in a sufficiently rigorous simulated environment that reflects realistic operational workplace conditions. This must cover all aspects of workplace performance, including environment, task skills, task management skills, contingency management skills and job role environment skills
  • Conditions for assessment must include access to all tools, equipment, materials and documentation required, including relevant workplace procedures, product and manufacturing specifications
  • Assessment processes and techniques must be appropriate to the language, literacy and numeracy requirements of the work being performed and the needs of the candidate.
