Circuits, and; UEENEEE107A Use drawings, diagrams, schedules, standards, codes and specifications. Instrumentation and Control Pathway Group: UEENEEE119A Solve problems in multiple path extra low voltage (ELV) a.c. circuits; UEENEEI101A Use instrumentation drawings, specification, standards and equipment manuals; UEENEEI102A Solve problems in pressure measurement components and systems; UEENEEI103A Solve problems in density/level measurement components and systems; UEENEEI104A Solve problems in flow measurement components and systems; UEENEEI105A Solve problems in temperature measurement components and systems; UEENEEI106A Set up and adjust PID control loops; UEENEEI110A Set up and adjust advanced PID process control loops; UEENEEI112A Verify compliance and functionality of instrumentation and control installations, and; UEENEEI113A Setup and configure Human-Machine Interface (HMI) and industrial networks. Electrical Pathway Group: Please contact Victoria Polytechnic, for the list of pre-requisites required and contained within this group.


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 and knowledge: - amplifier fundamentals; - basic op-amp configurations; - op amp limitations; - single stage amplifiers; - amplifier applications; - op amp/diode circuits; - oscillators; - op amp/RC circuits; - fliters; - timers; - power amplifiers, and; - multi-stage circuits.
