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 relevant legislation, documentation, policies and procedures
  • implements appropriate procedures and techniques for the safe, effective and efficient implementation of civil construction plans including:
  • project plans and drawings
  • project specifications
  • project construction briefs
  • project engineering survey information
  • project hydrological data
  • meteorological data
  • project geotechnical data
  • works effectively with others to implement a civil construction plan that meets all the required outcomes including:
  • providing clear and timely instruction and supervision using a range of communication techniques to those involved
  • preparing for and conducting briefings, toolbox and site meetings
  • maintaining clear and legible written records and the reporting systems
  • consulting with stakeholders
  • demonstrates completion of implementing civil construction plan that safely, effectively and efficiently meets all of the required outcomes on more than one (1) occasion including:
  • determining viable options and selection of civil construction plans
  • confirming availability and accuracy of the project information from one (1) of the following sources:
  • consultation with the client
  • consultation with others within the organisation
  • obtaining further site data including:
  • geological data
  • survey data
  • hydrological data
  • meteorological data
  • successful implementation of a civil construction plan

Knowledge Evidence

The candidate must demonstrate knowledge in the implementation of a civil construction plan through:

  • accessing, interpreting and applying legislative, organisation and site requirements and procedures for:
  • risk assessment and management
  • statutory compliance
  • the development of a construction implementation plan
  • work, health and safety
  • environmental management
  • quality management
  • communication
  • sources of information on innovation and new technology
  • contract management
  • team leadership
  • cost estimation
  • recording and reporting
  • organisational and site operational obligations
  • materials quality and delivery requirements and procedures
  • principles of road user behaviour

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

    AQF** Level

    Required assessor or Industry subject matter expert experience

    Drilling, Metalliferous Mining, Coal Mining, Extractive (Quarrying) and Civil Construction

    Other sectors

    Where this Unit is being assessed outside of the Resources and Infrastructure Sectors assessor and/or Industry subject matter expert experience should be in-line with industry standards for the sector in which it is being assessed and where no Industry standard is specified should comply with any relevant regulation.

    *Assessors can demonstrate current work experience through employment within Industry in a role relevant to the outcomes of the Unit; or, for external assessors this can be demonstrated through exposure to Industry by conducting frequent site assessments across various locations.

    **Where a unit is being delivered outside of a Qualification the first numeric character in the Unit code should be considered to indicate the AQF level
