Skills covered by this unit are generally applied in occupational and work situations associated with steel fabrication, boilermaking or sheet metal work.
Work may be undertaken individually or as part of a team.
Where assembly involves using pre-constructed jigs unitMEM03001 Perform manual production assembly and unit MEM03003 Perform sheet and plate assembly, should also be selected as appropriate.
Where skills for the assembly of fabricated engineering components are required unit MEM18006 Perform precision fitting of engineering components should also be selected.
Where welds are required to meet legislative or regulatory requirements, then appropriate welding units should also be selected.
No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
