Course Description

This unit covers the use of drawings, diagrams, equipment and cable schedules and manuals as they apply to the various electrotechnology work functions. It encompasses the rudiments for communicating with schematic, wiring and mechanical diagrams and equipment and cable/connection schedules, manuals, site and architectural drawings and plans showing the location of services, apparatus, plant and machinery.


National Codes, Titles, Elements and Performance Criteria

National Element Code & Title:

UEENEEE007B Use drawings, diagrams, schedules and manuals

Element:

1. Prepare to use drawings, diagrams, schedules and manual
2. Use drawings, diagrams, schedules and manuals to obtain job information
3. Use drawings, diagrams, schedules and manuals to convey information and ideas

Performance Criteria:

1.1 Established OHS risk control measures and procedures are followed.
1.2 The need for drawings, diagrams, schedules or manuals is determined from the nature of the work to be undertaken.
1.3 Established routines and procedures are followed to obtain drawings, diagrams, schedules or manuals required for the work to be undertaken.

2.1 Drawings, diagrams, schedules and/or manuals are selected, appropriate to the work being undertaken.
2.2 Drawings, diagrams and schedules are interpreted using knowledge of drawing layouts, conventions and symbols.
2.3 Dimensions are extracted from drawings and diagrams for application to work undertaken.
2.4 Location of equipment is determined from equipment schedules and location diagrams.
2.5 Manuals are reviewed to ascertain their format and where information relevant to the work to be undertaken is located.
2.6 Information given in manuals is interpreted in relation to the work to be undertaken.

3.1 Drawing conventions are used in neat freehand drawings to convey information and ideas to others involved in the work to be undertaken.
3.2 Drawing conventions are used to neatly correct freehand original job drawing to show final ‘as installed’ arrangement.
3.3 Corrected drawings are forwarded to appropriate person(s) in accordance with established procedures.
