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
  • works effectively with others to undertake and complete ship loader operations that meet all of the required outcomes including:
  • using a range of communications techniques and equipment to convey information to others
  • maintaining written and verbal reporting requirements and procedures
  • communicating to confirm work requirements
  • demonstrates completion of ship loading operations that safely, effectively and efficiently meets all of the required outcomes on more than one (1) occasion including:
  • operating and controlling ship loader controls functions
  • loading ore
  • complying with ship’s hatch loading plan
  • conducting equipment hose down and chute cleaning
  • performing housekeeping activities

Knowledge Evidence

The candidate must demonstrate knowledge in conducting ship loading operations through:

  • data entry computer based system
  • accessing, interpreting and applying technical information
  • accurate record keeping
  • relevant operational and maintenance procedures and associated documentation
  • site and equipment safety requirements and procedures
  • ore type and quality
  • environmental requirements e.g. dust suppression and constraints related to ship-loading operations
  • impact of ship-loader operations on customer quality requirements
  • impact of ship-loader operations on vessel loading specifications
  • layout of vessel and potential structural hazards

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
