TAFE Victoria logo
Unit code: MEM30031 | Study level: TAFE


This unit of competency defines the skills and knowledge required to apply functions of computer-aided design (CAD) software programs that are typically used in the production of detail drawings.
This unit is suitable for those working within a CAD or drafting work environment and may be applied across engineering and manufacturing environments. It covers competent use of a CAD program to perform basic drawing tasks used in the development of detail drawings. Drawings may include plans, diagrams, charts, circuits, systems or schematics.All work is carried out under supervision.


For Melbourne campuses

Assessment tasks will be designed to reinforce & extend knowledge and skill competence within set & controlled parameters in accordance with each unit's learning outcomes & 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:

  • identifying drawing work requirements and selecting appropriate software functions and features
  • identifying features and uses of CAD software used in detail drafting
  • accessing and using computing equipment and CAD software functions on at least two occasions to produce drawing elements.
    Note: Where a volume and/or frequency is not specified, demonstration must be provided at least once.

Required reading

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