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, documentation, policies and procedures
  • implements the requirements, procedures and techniques for the safe, effective and efficient completion of mobilising equipment and materials including:
  • applying communication and recording skills
  • performing manual and mechanical handling
  • driving laden vehicles (on and off road)
  • performing basic maintenance skills
  • applying knots, load securing devices and attachment points for loaded vehicles
  • applying recovery techniques for bogged plant/vehicles
  • acquiring required licenses and permits
  • applying diagnostic and troubleshooting procedures
  • works effectively with others to undertake and complete the mobilisation of materials and equipment that meets all of the required outcomes including:
  • communicating information to base or other vehicles
  • demonstrates completion of mobilising equipment and materials that safely, effectively and efficiently meets all of the required outcomes on more than one (1) occasion including:
  • performing start up and safety checks according to organisation and supplier/manufacturer’s specifications
  • driving with the minimum of damage to vehicles, equipment and structures
  • operating vehicle in a safe manner in a range of conditions, including on and off road
  • navigating to destination site for delivery of equipment and materials
  • performing routine checks and maintenance, and minor repairs
  • using written and verbal communication to coordinate activity
  • completing all required documentation

Knowledge Evidence

The candidate must demonstrate knowledge of mobilising equipment and materials through:

  • identifying reasons loads shift and methods of preventing shifting
  • identifying number and types of lashings to apply, fixing points and basic knots
  • ensuring safe carrying of loads
  • applying a range of acquired safety and survival skills
  • showing a basic knowledge of hydraulic systems, components and cleanliness requirements
  • showing a basic knowledge of internal combustion motors and the major components

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
