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
  • identifying the engraving sequence and selecting the gravers, scorpers and other applicable tools required to meet specifications
  • measuring and marking out using datum lines or points for engraving and positioning and holding item without damage
  • completing work according to work specifications
  • maintaining the engravers by machining and sharpening graver shape and cutting angles in accordance with SOPs.

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 work practices and procedures and use of personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • engraving terminology
  • sources of task-related information
  • securing methods and limitations
  • different gravers and scorpers and their applications
  • techniques for producing and maintaining cutting edges
  • equipment and techniques used for maintaining gravers
  • hand engraving techniques for letters and basic pictures and carvings.

Assessment Conditions

  • Assessors must:
  • have vocational competency in performing hand engraving 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
