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 of competency specifies the outcomes required to conduct an engineering survey on engineering and construction sites. It requires the ability to plan approaches to engineering contingencies and management requirements. Functions would be carried out within organisational guidelines.

Overview of Assessment
A person who demonstrates competency in this unit must be able to provide evidence of:
• matching objectives with resources to ensure project proceeds in an organised and timely manner
• ensuring that achievement of required accuracy has been attempted by:
• accessing and interpreting design information to identify the components to be measured and monitored
• applying solutions to a range of problems
• performing measurements
• planning resources
• managing contingencies
• documenting and reporting
• ensuring that non-conformity aspects are recorded and reported
• taking responsibility for team outputs in work and learning.
Assessment of this unit will involve completion of Assignments and the Evaluation of portfolio, using a checklist, of the performance of elements of competence as designated for this unit to the required standard including collection methods and techniques related to the project objectives.
NYC 0-49% Not yet competence
CAG 50 – 59% Competence
CC 60 – 69% Competence with credit
CDI 70 – 79% Competence with distinction
CHD 80-100% Competence with high distinction
Students are reminded that cheating, whether by fabrication, falsification of data, or plagiarism, is an offence subject to University disciplinary procedures. Plagiarism in oral or written presentations is the presentation of the work, idea or creation of another person, without appropriate referencing, as though it is one’s own. Plagiarism is not acceptable.
The use of another person’s work or ideas must be acknowledged. Failure to do so may result in charges of academic misconduct which carry a range of penalties including cancellation of results and exclusion from your course.
Students are responsible for ensuring that their work is kept in a secure place. It is also a disciplinary offence for students to allow their work to be plagiarized by another student. Students should be aware of their rights and responsibilities regarding the use of copyright material. It is strongly recommended that students refer to the RMIT 2001 Guidelines for Students or to the RMIT University Homepage.
