Performance Evidence

Evidence required to demonstrate competence in this unit must be relevant to and satisfy all of the requirements of the elements, performance criteria and range of conditions on at least two separate occasions and include:

  • applying relevant work health and safety (WHS)/occupational health and safety (OHS) requirements, including risk control measures
  • using online 'Help' function to resolve common problems
  • following application instructions to input and output information
  • outputting information to relevant devices
  • preparing to use computer applications
  • reading and applying software instructions
  • saving, storing information and backing up files
  • saving, storing, outputting and forwarding information electronically
  • shutting down computer
  • transferring information between software applications
  • using engineering application software.

Knowledge Evidence

Evidence required to demonstrate competence in this unit must be relevant to and satisfy all of the requirements of the elements, performance criteria and range of conditions and include knowledge of:

  • software operating system
  • relevant engineering computer software applications, including:
  • computer-aided design (CAD)
  • engineering data analysis software
  • engineering modelling
  • project management
  • network simulator
  • protocol analyser
  • relevant job safety assessments or risk mitigation processes, including risk control measures
  • relevant manufacturer specifications
  • relevant WHS/OHS legislated requirements
  • relevant workplace documentation
  • relevant workplace policies and procedures.

Assessment Conditions

Assessors must hold credentials specified within the Standards for Registered Training Organisations current at the time of assessment.

Assessment must satisfy the Principles of Assessment and Rules of Evidence and all regulatory requirements included within the Standards for Registered Training Organisations current at the time of assessment.

Assessment must occur in workplace operational situations where it is appropriate to do so; where this is not appropriate, assessment must occur in simulated workplace operational situations that replicate workplace conditions.

Assessment processes and techniques must be appropriate to the language, literacy and numeracy requirements of the work being performed and the needs of the candidate.

Resources for assessment must include access to:

  • a range of relevant exercises, case studies and/or other simulations
  • relevant and appropriate materials, tools, equipment and personal protective equipment (PPE) currently used in industry
  • applicable documentation, including workplace procedures, equipment specifications, regulations, codes of practice and operation manuals.
