Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1. This is the first release of this unit of competency in the UEP Electricity Supply Industry – Generation Sector Training Package Release 2.0.

Application

This unit involves the skills and knowledge required to conduct a range of minor maintenance functions associated with mechanical equipment. Minor is defined as work that is of lesser seriousness or significance in mechanical maintenance.

Mechanical equipment in a power generation facility can include a variety of plant, machinery and power tools that may contain computers and sensors to monitor and enhance performance.

Competency in this unit requires the ability to plan work, conduct minor maintenance and complete work. Individuals will, in general, work as an operator in a power generation facility.

Power generation plant operators are trained and authorised to isolate, prepare plant and issue permits to work.

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

Pre-requisite Unit

There are no prerequisite units
