To be deemed competent you must demonstrate an understanding of all aspects required of the competency. Assessment methods have been designed to measure your achievement of each competency in a flexible manner over multiple tasks.


Assessment Tasks

Students are required to complete 2 different types of assessment tasks
Assessment 1- Submit workbook underpinning questions and completed Swms (weighting 30%)
Assessment 2- Practical installationof tasks 61, 62, 63. (weighting 70%)
To successfully complete this unit, a student needs to be deemed competent (CA grade) in both assessment tasks.
Grading Criteria:
NYC - Not yet competent
