Assessment

Assessment tasks will be designed to reinforce and extend knowledge and skill competence within set and controlled parameters in accordance with each unit's learning outcomes and performance criteria requirements, including the setting of work based practical application tasks designed to provide evidence of competence outcomes, within periodic and scheduled timelines. Students will be expected to demonstrate the following required skills: - recognising nonconforming welds; - reading, interpreting and following information on specifications, standard operating procedures, drawings and other - applicable reference documents; - using pre-set gauges; - collecting weld test data, and; - entering routine and familiar information onto proformas and standard workplace forms/reports. Students will also be expected to demonstrate the following knowledge: - the function of pre-set gauges; - test requirements appropriate to the welded product; - legislative and/or regulatory requirements of the welded product, and; - reporting and corrective action procedures.
