Application

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to operate a single unit operation/plant item/item of equipment. It is for items of equipment/plant items/unit operations which are not otherwise covered in this Training Package and may be organisation specific.

This unit applies to a person who has the responsibility for undertaking the routine operation of an individual unit of equipment or a plant item. Typically, the person will be an ‘outside’ or ‘field’ operator; however, the unit may also be applied to ‘panel’ or ‘control room’ operators.

This unit applies to an individual working alone or as part of a team/work group and working in liaison with other shift team members and the control room operator.

No licensing or certification requirements exist at the time of publication. Relevant legislation, industry standards and codes of practice within Australia must also be applied.
