This unit of competency defines the skills and knowledge required to perform engineering activities at the paraprofessional level and covers the performance of technical aspects of engineering work where outcomes and performance measures are negotiated with appropriate personnel, technical experts and specialists in accordance with established engineering principles and practices. It applies to technical activities carried out within a range of engineering disciplines.


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:

  • following work instructions, standard operating procedures (SOPs) and safe work practices
  • researching and evaluating factors, conditions and contexts integral to effective engineering practices
  • researching and evaluating the application of management practices and regulatory and legal systems integral to effective engineering practices
  • consulting with technical experts and specialists and ranking and evaluating engineering options on at least two occasions
  • complying with work health and safety (WHS) and environmental regulations, codes of practice and statutory requirements, identifying and * analysing hazards and risks
  • researching and evaluating engineering career options based on current engineering activities.
    Note: Where a volume and/or frequency is not specified, demonstration must be provided at least once.
