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

This unit has linkages to a wide range of other units in various Training Packages and combined assessment and/or training would be appropriate.

Course Description

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to develop and refine a range of techniques to produce technical drawings. It outlines the ways technical drawing can be applied to a range of contexts where visual representation is required. People working in many industries require the skills and knowledge in this unit, and the unit is written to allow for contextualisation to a particular industry context. This work would usually be carried out independently, although guidance would be available if required.
