Elements and Performance Criteria

Elements

Performance Criteria

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1. Prepare netting material for repair

1.1 Select, check and use required personal protective equipment

1.2 Arrange netting material and organise repair tools to maximise job efficiency and safety

1.3 Identify material required for the repair operation by measuring existing material or by reference to a gear plan

1.4 Remove damaged netting using net repair tools, and dispose of according to workplace and environmental requirements

1.5 Prepare retained netting ready to accept replacement

1.6 Shape and strengthen replacement netting with net repair tools according to the gear plan or supervisor instructions before being added to the net

2. Mend holes and rips using twine

2.1 Identify starting points and secure twine to the netting according to supervisor instructions

  • mending holes and rips
  • repairing large scale damage.

Knowledge Evidence

An individual must be able to demonstrate the knowledge required to perform the tasks outlined in the elements and performance criteria of this unit. This includes knowledge of:

  • principles of a gear plan and how it describes a net
  • factors that contribute to an efficient, fast and safe net mending job
  • measuring techniques for different types of netting
  • order in which knots are tied to form netting material, including negative and positive knots to change lifts and impact of drag on fuel efficiencies
  • safety practices for using net repair tools
  • environmental requirements for disposing of damaged netting.

Assessment Conditions

Assessment of skills must take place under the following conditions:

  • physical conditions:
  • skills must be demonstrated in a fully operational net repair area of a fishing operations workplace or an environment that accurately represents workplace conditions
  • resources, equipment and materials:
  • personal protective equipment
  • different types of netting requiring repair
  • repair tools
  • specifications:
