CPCCOM3006 - Carry out levelling operations

    Unit code: CPCCOM3006 | Study level: TAFE


    This unit of competency specifies the skills and knowledge required to carry out levelling operations to establish correct and accurate set-out of buildings and components, meeting all relevant requirements of the National Construction Code (NCC), Australian Standards, work health and safety (WHS), and Commonwealth and state or territory legislation.
    It includes:
    *using the rise and fall and height of collimation methods
    *setting up, testing and using levelling devices
    *undertaking closed and open traverses using a range of levelling equipment
    *calculating distances using stadia lines.Completion of the general construction induction training program specified by the model Code of Practice for Construction Work is required for any person who is to carry out construction work. Achievement of CPCCWHS1001Prepare to work safely in the construction industry meets this requirement.


    For Melbourne campuses

    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:
    *identify site hazards
    *establish approximate distances & transfer of reduced levels
    *measure & record:

    • ground levels at respective critical set-out points
    • heights or levels for building components
    • heights or levels of ceilings and floors
    • slab or pad levels for placement of steel columns or masonry piers
      *determine shooting levels for:
    • concrete slabs
    • excavation or footings
    • transfer levels or heights for construction projects
    • calculate rise & fall and height from collimation.

    Required reading

    The qualified trainer and assessor will provide teaching and learning materials as required in the form of workbooks produced by the Polytechnic and/or via the Polytechnic e-learning system.
