Evidence Guide


The Evidence Guide provides advice on assessment and must be read in conjunction with the performance criteria, required skills and knowledge, range statement and the Assessment Guidelines for the Training Package.

Overview of assessment 

The unit will be assessed in as holistic a manner as is practical and may be integrated with the assessment of other relevant units of competency.

Critical aspects for assessment and evidence required to demonstrate competency in this unit 

Competence must be demonstrated in the ability to identify work activities and prioritise work in order to meet timelines, whilst interacting as a member of a group.

Consistent performance should be demonstrated. In particular look to see that:

  • there is a willingness to participate as part of a group
  • there is an understanding of teamwork
  • there is an understanding of how individual task completion affects team objectives
  • support is sought from and given to colleagues to achieve team objectives
  • allocated tasks are completed safely and within timelines
  • relevant procedures are found and used in completing activities.

Context of and specific resources for assessment 

Assessment in this competency unit may vary depending upon:

  • type of communication used within each enterprise
  • established work practices
  • size and structure of the teams
  • team goals - individual, section and enterprise.

Assessment will require access to an operating plant over an extended period of time, or a suitable method of gathering evidence of operating ability over a range of situations.

Assessment will occur over a range of situations which will include disruptions to normal, smooth operation.

Simulation or case studies/scenarios may be required to allow for timely assessment of parts of this unit of competency. Simulation should be based on the actual plant and will include 'walk-throughs' of the relevant competency components. A bank of scenarios/case studies/what ifs and questions will be required to probe the reasoning behind observable actions.

Method of assessment 

This unit may be assessed in conjunction with:

  • MSAPMSUP280A Manage conflict at work.

Individual enterprises may choose to add prerequisites and co-requisites relevant to their processes.

Guidance information for assessment 

Assessment processes and techniques must be culturally appropriate and appropriate to the language and literacy capacity of the candidate and the work being performed.

Range Statement


The range statement relates to the unit of competency as a whole. It allows for different work environments and situations that may affect performance. Bold italicised wording, if used in the performance criteria, is detailed below. Essential operating conditions that may be present with training and assessment (depending on the work situation, needs of the candidate, accessibility of the item, and local industry and regional contexts) may also be included.


All operations are performed in accordance with standard procedures and work instructions

Information sources and documentation 

This competency unit may vary according to the enterprise's use of the following information sources and documentation:

  • procedures/work instructions
  • materials safety data sheets (MSDS)
  • job cards
  • maintenance logs
  • plant drawings

Typical problems 

Typical problems may include:

  • required information/materials not available
  • required tool/equipment not available
  • conflicting priorities
  • competency mix in team
  • short timeframe


All operations are subject to stringent OHS requirements and these must not be compromised at any time. Where there is an apparent conflict between performance criteria and OHS requirements, the OHS requirements take precedence
