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
  • implements the requirements, procedures and techniques for the safe, effective and efficient completion of the draining and dewatering of a civil construction site including:
  • selecting and using the required tools and equipment
  • interpreting and applying work instructions
  • draining surface water
  • constructing sumps and wells and removing water
  • works effectively with others to undertake and complete the draining and dewatering of civil construction sites that meets all of the required outcomes including:
  • using a range of communication techniques to convey information to others
  • maintaining written and verbal reporting requirements and procedures
  • demonstrates completion of draining and dewatering civil construction sites that safely, effectively and efficiently meets all of the required outcomes on more than one (1) occasion including:
  • dewatering a trench or pit using at least one type of pump
  • establishing sedimentation controls
  • constructing a sump
  • installing surface or submersible pumps
  • pumping and dispersing water
  • draining surface water from a site using surface drains

Knowledge Evidence

The candidate must demonstrate knowledge in draining and dewatering civil construction sites through:

  • identifying and applying operational, maintenance and basic diagnostic procedures
  • identifying and complying with construction principles
  • interpreting engineering drawings
  • identifying equipment types, characteristics, technical capabilities and limitations
  • identifying and complying with site isolation and traffic control responsibilities
  • using and interpreting civil construction terminology

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
