  • ensuring a job plan is available and communicated which makes best use of the available resources and meets task requirements
  • works effectively with others to plan, prepare and conduct the supervision of rigid pavement construction tasks to meet all requirements including:
  • preparing for and organising work activities to meet all task requirements
  • communicating clearly and concisely with others to allocate work tasks and give work instructions
  • monitoring movements and hazards and identifying and communicating changes to the work environment during the work process
  • demonstrates completion of the principles of rigid pavement construction that safely, effectively and efficiently meets all of the required outcomes on more than one (1) occasion including:
  • ensuring the provision of all plant, tools, equipment and resources
  • supervising the application of correct and effective techniques for rigid pavement construction
  • supplying coaching solutions where tasks require problem solving

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 must be assessed in the context of this sector’s work environment; and,
  • this unit must be assessed in compliance with relevant legislation/regulation and using policies, procedures, processes and operational manuals directly related to the industry sector for which it is being assessed; and,
  • assessment may be conducted in conjunction with the assessment of other Units of Competency; and,
  • assessment must confirm consistent performance can be applied in a range of relevant workplace circumstances; and,
  • assessors must demonstrate the performance evidence, and knowledge evidence as outlined in this Unit of Competency, and through the minimum years of current* work experience specified below in an Industry sector relevant to the outcomes of the unit; or,
  • where the assessor does not meet experience requirements a co-assessment or partnership arrangement must exist between the qualified assessor and an Industry subject matter expert. The Industry subject matter expert should hold the unit being assessed (or an equivalent unit) and/or demonstrate equivalence of skills and knowledge at the unit level. An Industry technical expert must also demonstrate skills and knowledge from the minimum years of current work experience specified below in the Industry sector, including time spent in roles related to the unit being assessed; and,
  • assessor and Industry subject matter expert requirements differ depending on the Australian Qualifications Framework Level (AQF) of the qualification being assessed and/or Industry Sector as follows:
  • Industry sector
