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 the requirements, procedures and techniques for the safe, effective and efficient completion of pipe tripping including:
  • interpret work requirements
  • correctly handles tubular and equipment
  • visually and physically checks latches lines, ropes, hoists, and equipment
  • identifies, records and reports all faults
  • works effectively with others to undertake and complete the tripping of pipes that meets all of the required outcomes including:
  • working in a team and organising work activities to meet all task requirements
  • communicating clearly and concisely with others to receive and clarify work instructions
  • demonstrates completion of the tripping of pipes that safely, effectively and efficiently meets all of the required outcomes on more than one (1) occasion including:
  • preparing pill
  • putting trip tank on line and fill
  • checking safety lines, ropes and air hoists
  • stand back, run in, lay down and pick up pipecracker
  • releasing pipe from elevators
  • latching elevators on drill string and stabilise
  • operating air hoists
  • correctly operating a manual or automated racking system

Knowledge Evidence

The candidate must demonstrate knowledge of trip pipe through:

  • legislative, site and manufacturer’s requirements and procedures
  • performing correct drilling operation
  • complying with company and statutory safety guidelines, procedures and practices
  • with safe operating procedures when operating equipment
  • demonstrating using hand signals
  • preparing working knots
  • with rig maintenance
  • types and characteristics of discharges including liquids, gases and solids
  • types and characteristics of materials including flammable, toxic, corrosive, explosive and radioactive
  • normal drilling operations
  • non-routine drilling operations
  • and complying with man management/rig management

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
