Regardless of the mode of delivery, represent a guide to the relative teaching time and student effort required to successfully achieve a particular competency/module. This may include not only scheduled classes or workplace visits but also the amount of effort required to undertake, evaluate and complete all assessment requirements, including any non-classroom activities.

Pre-requisites and Co-requisites

CPCCOHS2001A Apply OHS requirements, policies and procedures in the construction industry

Course Description

This unit of competency specifies the outcomes required to carry out levelling in a single plane for the purpose of establishing correct and accurate set out of buildings components. It includes the set up, testing and use of levelling devices, and establishing and transferring heights using a range of levelling equipment.

Overview of Assessment

Assessment may incorporate a variety of methods including written/oral activities and demonstration of practical skills to the relevant industry standards.
Participants are advised that they are likely to be asked to personally demonstrate their assessment activities to their teacher/assessor. Feedback will be provided throughout the course.


Assessment Tasks

Students are required to complete Five different types of assessment tasks
