This unit covers the application of fundamental numerical calculations required to solve routine electrotechnology problems and reporting the outcomes to requirements. It encompasses working safely, applying routine problem solving techniques, using a range of fundamental mathematical processes and techniques to identifying solutions to electrotechnology problems, and reporting the solutions.

Note. Typical electrotechnology problems are those encountered in meeting routine performance requirements and compliance standards, interpreting the operating parameters of equipment and dealing with equipment malfunctions. Typical reports are those based on routine structures and formats, and require the application of routine communication fundamentals.
