UEECD0045 - Solve problems in multiple path extra-low voltage (ELV) a.c. circuits

    Unit code: UEECD0045 | Study level: TAFE
    UEECD0007 - Apply work health and safety regulations, codes and practices in the workplace
    UEECD0043 - Solve problems in direct current circuits
    (Or equivalent to be determined by unit coordinator)


    This unit involves the skills and knowledge required to solve problems in multiple path extra-low voltage (ELV) alternating current (a.c.) circuits.
    It includes working safely, applying problem-solving procedures, measuring devices, and providing solutions from measurements and calculations to problems in multiple path circuits.The skills and knowledge described in this unit require a licence or permit to practice in the workplace where work is carried out on electrical installations which are designed to operate at voltages greater than 50 volt (V) a.c. or 120 V direct current (d.c.).


    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, incl 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:
    * applying relevant work health and safety (WHS)/occupational health and safety (OHS) requirements, including
    * using risk control measures
    * checking and isolating circuits
    * identifying and assessing sources of materials required for work
    * obtaining and checking tools, equipment and testing devices for correct operation and safety using sustainable energy practices
    * obtaining scope of circuit/s from documentation and/or work supervisor
    * preparing to work on multiple path extra-low voltage (ELV) alternating current (a.c.) electrical circuits
    * seeking advice from the work supervisor
    * solving a.c. circuits problems from measuring and calculating values
    * testing and measuring live circuits
    * dealing with unplanned situations safely and with the approval of relevant person/s
    * workplace documenting, including:
    * justifications solution
    * work completion.

    Required reading

    The qualified trainer and assessor will advise students of class notes, reading materials produced by VU Polytechnic and further support via VU Polytechnic e-learning system and/or in person.
