Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1. Supersedes and is equivalent to MEM20007A Plan and prepare a masterkey system

Application

This unit of competency defines the skills and knowledge required to create a new masterkey system for in-line pin tumbler cylinders up to and including a hierarchical great grand masterkey (GGMK) system and maisoning. It applies to manually developing a standard (even cut) progression in-line masterkey system and using a computer masterkeying package.

Where a security survey/site assessment is required unit MEM20014 Perform a site security survey should also be selected.

Where cross keying, sub-masterkeying and selective keying is required unit MEM20008 Develop and implement a masterkey system should also be selected.

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 MEM20007A Plan and prepare a masterkey system

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
  • discussing customer requirements and reviewing appropriate levels of security/access
  • interpreting architectural plans, floor plans and charts when planning and preparing a masterkey system
  • recognising personal limitations in assessing requirements for key and masterkey systems and seeking assistance from appropriate person(s) in accordance with SOPs
  • identifying the appropriate key system and levels according to customer requirements
  • undertaking numerical operations and calculations, including mathematical patterns associated with planning and preparing a masterkey system
  • developing a masterkey system and key matrix allowing for future expansion
  • developing and reading code matrix and selecting codes that maximise system security
  • identifying incidental masters in a key system and selecting a group of codes to form a maisioned cylinder
  • completing all documentation 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)
  • record keeping and management
  • manufacturers'/Australian/building standards
  • product knowledge and limitations

Assessment Conditions

  • Assessors must:
  • have vocational competency in planning and preparing a masterkey system 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.
