Assessment requirements

Modification History

Release 1. Supersedes and is equivalent to LMTLG2006A Identify materials used in leather goods production

Performance Evidence

Evidence required to demonstrate competence in this unit must be relevant to and satisfy the requirements of the elements and performance criteria, and include:

  • reading and following work instructions, standard operating procedures (SOPs), safe work practices, industry codes and standards
  • identifying a range of materials used in leather goods production
  • identifying the range of uses of materials for leather goods production and their handling and care requirements
  • identifying performance characteristics of at least five (5) different leather and material samples
  • identifying common faults, problems and surface defects of materials and how to deal with them
  • maintaining accurate records.

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)
  • relevant Australian Standards
  • handling procedures for materials
  • types of materials:
  • types of leather
  • adhesives
