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
  • demonstrates completion of cutting, welding and bending materials that safely, effectively and efficiently meets all of the required outcomes on more than one (1) occasion including:
  • identifying and matching cutting equipment with job task
  • setting up oxyacetylene, electric welding and bending equipment in correct sequence
  • testing the equipment
  • accurately mark and secure or clamp material ready for bending and cutting
  • lighting torch correctly and safely
  • adjusting setting of flame for cutting
  • controlling the heat of the torch to suit the materials being bent
  • adopting correct cutting position during cutting to set out mark
  • welding and cutting materials cleanly
  • cleaning and visually inspecting the welds for defects
  • bending materials to job task requirements
  • shutting down the torch and gas supply in sequence

Knowledge Evidence

The candidate must demonstrate knowledge of cutting, welding and bending materials through:

  • identifying manual metal arc welding, oxyacetylene and LPG heating and cutting equipment types, characteristics, uses and limitations
  • relevant welding, bending and cutting techniques
  • relevant equipment and machinery used in welding, bending and cutting materials
  • using construction and steel fixing terminology
  • types and properties of steel fixing materials
  • processes for the calculation of material requirements

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 is best assessed in the context of this sector’s work environment;
  • where personal safety or environmental damage are limiting factors, assessment may occur in a simulated 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; 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

    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
