Required Skills and Knowledge[edit | edit source]
|8) This describes the essential skills and knowledge and their level, required for this unit.
| Evidence must show that knowledge has been acquired of safe working practices and participating in development and following a personal competency development plan. All knowledge and skills detailed in this unit should be contextualised to current industry practices and technologies. KS01-EC024A Instrumentation and control work competency development activities Evidence shall show an understanding of instrumentation and control work competency development activities to an extent indicated by the following aspects: T1. Responsibilities under a competency development plan:
Key Terms[edit | edit source]
Range Statement[edit | edit source]
|10) This relates to the unit as a whole providing the range of contexts and conditions to which the performance criteria apply. It allows for different work environments and situations that will affect performance.
|This unit must be demonstrated following the completion of a range of performance process activities that contribute to assisting in the evaluation of progress towards the development of competency. The unit applies to those engaged in employment-based programs covered by an approved contract of training under a relevant State/Territory training Act seeking to complete the qualification. Incorporated therein is the requirement for deploying an approved competency development (training) plan. The Plan specifies the units which are to be attained to complete the qualification. This unit is a core requirement for the completion of the qualification. It encompasses the processes required to participate in the development of competence by an apprentice/learner in the industry and in particular the activities associated with performance in the workplace and in vocational and technical education. It includes but is not limited to recognising and participating in:
|Generic terms used throughout this Vocational Standard shall be regarded as part of the Range Statement in which competency is demonstrated. The definition of these and other terms that apply are given in Volume 2, Part 2.1.
Review Questions[edit | edit source]
Challenges[edit | edit source]
Challenges should be built around the following areas:
Evidence Guide[edit | edit source]
|9) This provides essential advice for assessment of the unit. It must be read in conjunction with the performance criteria and the range statement of the unit and the Training Package Assessment Guidelines. The Evidence Guide forms an integral part of this unit. It must be used in conjunction with all parts of this unit and performed in accordance with the Assessment Guidelines of this Training Package.
|Overview of Assessment
|9.1) Longitudinal competency development approaches to assessment, such as Profiling, require data to be reliably gathered in a form that can be consistently interpreted over time. This approach is best utilised in Apprenticeship programs and reduces assessment intervention. It is the industry-preferred model for apprenticeships. However, where summative (or final) assessment is used it is to include the application of the competency in the normal work environment or, at a minimum, the application of the competency in a realistically simulated work environment. It is recognised that, in some circumstances, assessment in part or full can occur outside the workplace. However, it must be in accordance with industry and regulatory policy. Methods chosen for a particular assessment will be influenced by various factors. These include the extent of the assessment, the most effective locations for the assessment activities to take place, access to physical resources, additional safety measures that may be required and the critical nature of the competencies being assessed. The critical safety nature of working with electricity, electrical equipment, gas or any other hazardous substance/material carries risk in deeming a person competent. Sources of evidence need to be 'rich' in nature to minimise error in judgment. Activities associated with normal everyday work have a bearing on the decision as to how much and how detailed the data gathered will contribute to its 'richness'. Some skills are more critical to safety and operational requirements while the same skills may be more or less frequently practised. These points are raised for the assessors to consider when choosing an assessment method and developing assessment instruments. Sample assessment instruments are included for Assessors in the Assessment Guidelines of this Training Package.
|Critical aspects of evidence required to demonstrate competency in this unit
|9.2) Before the critical aspects of evidence are considered all prerequisites must be met.
| Evidence for competence in this unit shall be considered holistically. Each Element and associated performance criteria shall be demonstrated on at least two occasions in accordance with the 'Assessment Guidelines - UEE07'. Evidence shall also comprise:
|Identifying and confirming the context, requirements and responsibilities of the competency development (training) plan to be met
|Identifying and confirming the critical industry, enterprise and regulatory policies, procedures and context applicable to all work activities
|Identifying and confirming the applicable training practices, requirements, administration, costs and support service policies and procedures provided by the RTO to all vocational and technical education activities
|Seeking clarification of how particular work is to be carried out and the procedures involved
|Dealing with unexpected situations in accordance with industry/enterprise policies and procedures, and with the approval of an authorised person
|Reporting periodically the competency development activities in accordance with requirements
|Periodically reviewing progress of the competency development activities in accordance with requirements
|Pursuing strategies to develop opportunities for gaining the range of workplace experiences and exposure
|Progressing successfully against periodic or staged evaluative performance events according to requirements
|Seeking assistance to overcome difficulties in developing competency
|Dealing with unplanned events by drawing on essential knowledge and skills to provide appropriate solutions incorporated in a holistic assessment with the above listed items
|Context of and specific resources for assessment
| 9.3) This unit should be assessed as it relates to normal work practice using procedures, information and resources typical of a workplace. This should include:
|The resources used for assessment should reflect current industry practices in relation to participating in development and following a personal competency development plan.
|Method of assessment
| 9.4) This unit shall be assessed by methods given in Volume 1, Part 3 'Assessment Guidelines'. Note:
Competent performance with inherent safe working practices is expected in the Industry to which this unit applies. This requires that the specified essential knowledge and associated skills are assessed in a structured environment which is primarily intended for learning/assessment and incorporates all necessary equipment and facilities for learners to develop and demonstrate the essential knowledge and skills described in this unit.
|Concurrent assessment and relationship with other units
|This unit shall be assessed concurrently with other units in a qualification.
|Verify compliance and functionality of process control installations
