Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1 . This is the first release of this unit of competency in the UEP Generation Training Package.

Application

This unit involves the skills and knowledge required to undertake fault finding, diagnosis, out of service inspection (internal or external), repairs and/or overhaul of material feeders.

Material feeders are used to regulate the flow of bulk materials from bins and hoppers. They can be used in conjunction with other types of material handling equipment such as conveyors in a power generation facility.

Competency in this unit requires the ability to plan work, conduct in-service testing, remove equipment to facilitate maintenance of material feeders, maintain material feeders, replace or install material feeders and to report on all completed work tasks. Individuals will, in general, work under supervision in an electrical, electronic and/or mechanical equipment repair workshop or on site.

Power generation maintenance personnel are typically trained and authorised to receive permits to work.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.

Note: Workplace practice 

The application of the skills and knowledge described in this unit of competency may require a licence or training permit to practice in the workplace, where work is carried out on gas and electrical installations. Additional and/or other conditions may apply under state and territory legislative and regulatory licensing requirements.
