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

NIL

Course Description

This unit applies to any of the full range of engineering disciplines. All work is carried out under supervision and all specifications, dimensions and tolerances are predetermined. The unit covers application of introductory drafting skills to select and apply drawing protocols.

Manual drafting or computer-aided design (CAD) drawing equipment may be used.

If CAD skills are required, MEM30031A Operate computer-aided design (CAD) system to produce basic drawing elements, should be selected.

Drawings are completed to Australian Standard (AS) 1100.101–1992 Technical drawing – General principles.
