    Unit code: CPCCCM2006 | Study level: TAFE
    Footscray Nicholson


    This unit of competency specifies the outcomes required to carry out levelling in a single plane for the purpose of establishing correct and accurate set-out of building components. It includes the set-up, testing and use of levelling devices, and establishing and transferring heights using a range of levelling equipment. The unit supports workers in the construction industry who use a variety of common methods and equipment when working with others and as a member of a team. It applies to levelling work on residential and commercial work sites.

    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:

    • transfer levels and record differences in height for three different projects as required by job specifications, using at least three of the following levelling devices: a spirit level and straight edge; automatic/optical levelling device; levelling with water technique, and; laser levelling device.

    In doing the above work, the person must:

    • conduct a two peg test with an automatic/optical level to confirm that the instrument meets manufacturer tolerances;
    • locate, interpret and apply relevant information in job specifications to the levelling task;
    • comply with site safety plan, and health and safety regulations applicable to workplace operations;
    • comply with organisational policies and procedures, including quality requirements;
    • safely and effectively use tools and equipment;
    • communicate and work effectively and safely with others, including using agreed communication signals;
    • confirm accuracy of the readings taken, including set-up and movement of device in two locations, and;
    • accurately record results of each levelling procedure according to organisational requirements.
