This unit replaces RIIOGD303D Trip pipe. Substantial amendments made to performance criteria, performance evidence and knowledge evidence. Added mapping table.

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:
  • interpreting work requirements
  • correctly handling tubular and equipment
  • visually and physically checks lifting and running equipment
  • identifying, recording and reporting 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 if applicable to equipment in use
  • releasing pipe from elevators
  • connecting lifting equipment to drill string and stabilise
  • operating air hoists if required
  • correctly operating a manual or automated racking system

Knowledge Evidence

The candidate must demonstrate knowledge the following of trip pipe:

  • legislative, site and manufacturer’s requirements and procedures
  • performing correct drilling operation
  • compliance with company and statutory safety guidelines, procedures and practices
  • safe operating procedures when operating equipment
  • hand signals
  • preparation of working knots if applicable
  • 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
  • compliance with human resource management/rig management procedures

Assessment Conditions

  • Assessors must satisfy the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015/AQTF mandatory competency requirements for assessors; 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

    3-6

    3 Years

    Metalliferous Mining and Civil Construction

    3-6

    5 Years

    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.
