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:

  • setting up and safely performing a range of fabrication tasks to meet job requirements;
  • interpreting drawings for fabrication tasks;
  • preforming calculations and marking out materials for fabrication tasks according to job instructions;
  • planning and sequencing fabrication tasks;
  • selecting appropriate tools and equipment for fabrication tasks;
  • carrying out fabrication tasks inline with job specifications;
  • following enterprise environmental requirements for the disposal of waste materials;
  • performing calculations involving additions, subtractions, multiplication and divisions;
  • expressing numerical information in the form of fractions, decimal format or percentages;
  • selecting appropriate formula for calculating length, perimeter, area, volume and angles;
  • checking calculated answers for accuracy, and;
  • rounding off estimated answers.
