Assessment requirements

Modification History

Release 1. Supersedes and is equivalent to LMTLG2000A Skive leather pieces

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
  • interpreting work specifications and patterns
  • operate skiving machine on at least two (2) occasions, following SOPs and safety requirements
  • using appropriate skiving techniques to reflect work specifications
  • checking the performance of the machine regularly for signs of faulty operations and taking appropriate action
  • using a range of leathers, including quality leather
  • maintaining accurate records.

Knowledge Evidence

Evidence must be provided that demonstrates knowledge of:

  • safe work practices and procedures and use of personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • relevant Australian Standards
  • procedures for operating skiving machines
  • characteristics of typical leathers, fabrics, threads, and other materials used in leather goods production
  • quality standards and leather handling procedures
  • material flaws of leather, including veins, growth marks, ticks and scars
  • work health and safety (WHS) and environmental aspects of relevant production and assembly processes
  • relevant federal and state or territory legislative or regulatory requirements
  • recording and reporting procedures.

Assessment Conditions

  • Assessors must:
  • satisfy the assessor competency requirements that are in place at the time of the assessment, as set by the VET regulator
  • have vocational competency in skiving leather pieces, at least to the level being assessed, with relevant industry knowledge and experience.
  • Assessment should 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 reflecting 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.
  • 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.
  • Conditions for assessment must include access to all tools, equipment, materials and documentation required, including relevant workplace procedures, product and manufacturing specifications associated with this unit.
