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 effective moving and positioning of materials to form stockpiles to meet all required outcomes including:
  • preparing for and organising work activities to meet all task requirements
  • communicating clearly and concisely with others to receive and clarify work instructions
  • using a range of communication techniques and aids to advise others of work activity and exclusion zones
  • demonstrates completion of moving and positioning of materials to form stockpiles that safely, effectively and efficiently meets all of the required outcomes on more than one (1) occasion including:
  • confirming and implementing barriers and signage
  • carrying out pre-start, start-up, park-up and shutdown procedures
  • operating, steering, manoeuvring and positioning plant and equipment
  • inspecting stockpile structure
  • identifying and managing contaminants
  • conducting basic operational maintenance including servicing, lubrication and cleaning
  • process written records and reports

Knowledge Evidence

The candidate must demonstrate knowledge of moving and positioning materials to form stockpiles through:

  • planning and organising skills to conducting stockpiling operations
  • problem solving skills to technical resources and infrastructure issues
  • awareness of site environmental requirements and constraints
  • experience with site product characteristics
  • use of pre-start, start-up, operating and shutdown procedures and techniques
  • awareness of hazardous goods procedures and consequences of spills
  • use of indicator readings

  • knowledge of principles of contamination
  • use of stockpile management processes
  • use of recording and reporting processes
  • application of bund construction, drainage and stockpile maintenance procedures
  • awareness of wet and dry working procedures
  • application of environmental principles
  • use of isolation procedures principles
  • working knowledge of metallurgical and technical data
  • application of stockpile safety requirements and signage
  • working knowledge of stockpiling characteristics and limitations

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

    AQF** Level

    Required assessor or Industry subject matter expert experience

    Drilling, Metalliferous Mining, Coal Mining, Extractive (Quarrying) and Civil Construction

    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
