This unit of competency has been developed for Engineering Tradesperson – Mechanical apprenticeship training and the recognition of trade-level skills in non-computer numerical controlled (CNC) machining of ferrous and non-ferrous materials.
Where high level production machining applications are undertaken unit MEM07041 Perform production machining should be selected.
Where set-up and operation of electro-discharge machines (EDM) is required unit MEM07014 Perform electro-discharge machining (EDM) operations should also be selected.
Where machining is undertaken without undertaking any set up, including mounting of tools, setting of speeds, feeds and other operational parameters unit MEM07024 Operate and monitor machine and process and unit MEM07025 Perform advanced machine and process operation, should be selected as appropriate.
Where the selection and use of precision measurement is required unit MEM12003 Perform precision mechanical measurement should also be selected.
Where substantial marking out is required unit MEM12006 Mark off/out (general engineering) should also be selected.
Where the selection and use of power tools/hand held operations is required unit MEM18002 Use power tools/hand held operations should also be selected.
No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
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.
