Editorial corrections; amended Performance Evidence.

Performance Evidence

Evidence is required to be collected that demonstrates a candidate’s competency in this unit. Evidence must be relevant to the roles within this sector’s work operations and satisfy all of the requirements of the performance criteria of this unit and include evidence that the candidate:

  • locates and applies applicable documentation, policies and procedures
  • implements the requirements, procedures and techniques for the safe, effective and efficient carrying out of measurements and calculations including:
  • calculating each of the following using a realistic civil construction project:
  • quantity
  • length
  • perimeter
  • circumference
  • area
  • volume
  • number
  • ratio
  • percentage
  • works effectively with others to undertake and complete measurements and calculations that meet all of the required outcomes, including:
  • using a range of communications techniques and equipment
  • complying with written and verbal reporting requirements and procedures
  • demonstrates consistent timely completion of measurements and calculations that safely, effectively and efficiently meets the required outcomes on a minimum of three (3) separate occasions including:
  • completing measurements, calculations and estimations of quantities for projects of varying complexity
  • measuring using a rule or tape measure for a variety of tasks within 98% accuracy

Knowledge Evidence

The candidate must demonstrate knowledge of the following when carrying out measurements and calculations:

  • accessing, interpreting and applying the organisation and site requirements and procedures for:
  • using operational tools and equipment safely and effectively
  • achieving project quality and accuracy
  • using JSA’s/JSEA/Safe work methods
  • conversion of different metric values e.g. metres to millimetres
  • understanding tolerances
  • completing measuring, calculating, geometry and determination of quantities
  • caring for measuring equipment
  • working with civil construction terminology

Assessment Conditions

  • An assessor of this unit must satisfy the requirements of the NVR/AQTF or their successors; and Industry regulations for certification and licensing; and,
  • this unit is best assessed in the context of this sector’s work environment;
  • where personal safety or environmental damage are limiting factors, assessment may occur in a simulated environment provided it is realistic and sufficiently rigorous to cover all aspects of this sector’s workplace performance, including environment, task skills, task management skills, contingency management skills and job role environment skills; and,
  • this unit must be assessed using Resources and Infrastructure Industry sector specific policies, procedures, processes and operational manuals; and,
  • an assessor must demonstrate the skills and knowledge of this unit through five (5) years’ work experience in the Industry sector; and,
  • where the assessor does not have current experience a co-assessment or partnership arrangement needs to exist between the qualified assessor and an Industry technical expert/ subject matter expert. The Industry technical expert/subject matter expert must hold the unit being assessed and be currently working in the sector with a minimum of two (2) years’ of current work experience.
