Release 1

This version first released with RII Resources and Infrastructure Industry Training Package Version 3.0.

Performance Evidence

The candidate must demonstrate the ability to complete the tasks outlined in the elements and performance criteria of this unit.

The candidate must demonstrate completion of telescope materials handler operations that safely, effectively and efficiently follow workplace procedures to carry out work activity on at least two occasions, and include:

  • performing pre-start, start-up and shutdown procedures
  • checking controls, brakes and attachments for manoeuverability and serviceability and rectifying or reporting faults
  • operating the telescopic materials handler
  • attaching and securing appropriate lifting gear
  • shifting the load
  • selecting, fitting, testing, using and removing attachments, which must be certified and approved in line with workplace procedures
  • transporting the machine and equipment between work sites
  • parking and securing equipment

In the course of the above the candidate must also:

  • locate and apply required documentation, policies and procedures
  • select and wear personal protective equipment required for work activities
  • apply safe work practices, identifying and reporting potential hazards and environmental issues, and assess risks
  • access, interpret and apply technical information
  • apply fault finding techniques
  • monitor and manage equipment performance using indicators and alarms
  • identify common equipment faults
  • use a range of communication techniques and equipment essential to the safe completion of work activity, including hand, audible and other signals
  • meet written and verbal reporting requirements and procedures associated with telescopic materials handler operations

Knowledge Evidence

The candidate must be able to demonstrate knowledge to complete the tasks outlined in the elements and performance criteria of this unit. This includes:

Key policies and procedures, legislation and established requirements for telescopic materials handler operations, including those relating to:

  • isolation and traffic control responsibilities and authorities
  • safety data sheet and hazardous materials handling methods
  • development and compliance with job safety analyses and safe work method statement
  • maintenance and basic diagnostic
  • recyclable materials
  • housekeeping activities
  • environmental management plan

Key factors affecting work activities described in performance evidence above, including:

  • telescopic materials handler types, characteristics, technical capabilities and limitations
  • calculating safe working loads
  • methods of changing machine attachments
  • safe operating techniques in varying terrain
  • telescopic materials handler and attachment operating techniques

Assessment Conditions

Mandatory conditions for assessment of this unit are stipulated below. The assessment must:

  • include access to:
  • telescopic materials handler
  • attachments
  • personal protective equipment
  • be conducted in a safe environment and,
  • be assessed in context of this sector's work environment and,
  • 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
  • confirm consistent performance can be applied in a range of relevant workplace circumstances

Where personal safety or environmental damage are limiting factors, assessment may occur in a simulated work 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.

Assessor requirements 

Assessors must be able to clearly demonstrate current and relevant industry knowledge and experience to satisfy the mandatory regulatory standards as set out in the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015/AQTF mandatory requirements for assessors current at the time of assessment and any relevant licensing and certification requirements. This includes:

  • vocational competencies at least to the level being delivered and assessed
  • current industry skills directly relevant to the training and assessment being provided
  • current knowledge and skills in vocational training and learning that informs their training and assessment
  • formal relevant qualifications in training and assessment
  • having knowledge of and/or experience using the latest techniques and processes
  • possessing a high level of RII training product knowledge
  • having an understanding and knowledge of legislations and regulations relevant to the industry and to employment and workplaces
  • demonstrating the performance evidence, and knowledge evidence as outlined in this Unit of Competency, and
  • the minimum years of current** work experience after competency has been obtained as specified below in an industry sector relevant to the outcomes of the unit.

It is also acceptable for the appropriately qualified assessor to work with an industry expert to conduct assessment together and for the industry expert to be involved in the assessment judgement. The industry expert must hold the relevant vocational competencies and have current industry skills directly relevant to the training and assessment being provided, and must work alongside a trainer and/or assessor to conduct the assessment. This means the industry subject matter expert should hold the unit being assessed (or an equivalent unit), and must also demonstrate skills and knowledge from the minimum years of current work experience after competency has been obtained as specified below, including time spent in roles related to the unit being assessed:

Industry sector

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.

*Guidance on simulated environments has been stipulated in the RII implementation guide located on VETNet.

**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 a minimum number of site assessments as determined by the relevant industry sector, across various locations.

*** While a Unit of Competency does not have an AQF level, where a unit is being delivered outside of a qualification the first numeric character in the unit code should be considered as the AQF indicator level for assessment purposes.
