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: - depositing welds to procedure requirements; - determining weld outcomes, consumables and settings from welding procedure specification; - interpreting technical drawings and weld specifications for welding to code standards using FCAW; - using hand and power tools to prepare and weld materials to code standard; - using measurement and numeracy skills for welding to code standards, and; - reading and interpreting routine information on written job instructions, specifications and standard operating procedures. May include drawings.Students will also be expected to demonstrate the following knowledge: - requirements to produce welds to quality of AS1210, AS4041, ASME IX or equivalent; - safe welding practices; - use and application of personal protective equipment for FCAW; - relevant standards or codes; - methods for preparing plate and pipe for code standard welding; - pre-welding and post-welding heating methods and requirements for plate and pipe welding to code standard; - requirements for maintaining weld records to code standard, and; - hazards and control measures associated with welding, including housekeeping.
