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:

  • use features and functions of a computer-aided design and drafting (CADD) program to produce at least three different computer-aided drawings that meet project objectives.
    In the course of the above, the candidate must:
  • select CADD hardware and software to suit project requirements
  • follow operating instructions and organisational procedures
  • use feedback from others to refine and produce final drawings within specified timelines.
