Course Description

This unit of competency specifies the outcomes required to supervise the planning process and organisation of on-site building or construction work projects up to and including medium rise commercial and wide span buildings (medium rise licensing classification with reference to Class 1 and 10 construction, Class 2 and 3 to a maximum of 3 storeys, Class 4 to 9 to a maximum of 3 storeys, not including Type A construction). Successful supervision of planning and organisation requires effective interpretation of contractual and planning requirements and development of strategies for using human and physical resources effectively in order to comply with contractual obligations. In order to achieve the outcomes for this unit, knowledge of relevant building and construction planning practices, state or territory building and construction codes, standards and regulations and human resource principles and practices is required.

Students are to follow RMIT Special Consideration Policy found in RMIT Policies and
procedures link http://www.rmit.edu.au/students/specialconsideration/online
Reasonable Adjustment
Students with a disability or long-term medical or mental health condition can apply for
adjustments to their study and assessment conditions (Reasonable Adjustments and Equitable
Assessment Arrangements) by registering with the Disability Liaison Unit (DLU) at
http://www1.rmit.edu.au/browse;ID=jvfh87gfsfux1

Assessment Submission:
Turnitin
Turnitin is an online text-matching service which can be used to support academic integrity and
address plagiarism. All submissions via Turnitin within Blackboard include the relevant wording
for the e-Submission authorisation process. Students are to use Turnitin. to verify that the work
submitted is their own work and referenced accordingly. This software will be used by all staff to
ensures original work by students is checked at submission of the assessment.
e-Submission
The University is obliged to obtain clear student authorisation on all assessable works. RMIT’s
e-Submission process provides a valid authorisation equivalent to a signature on a paper
coversheet allowing students to submit assessment works electronically.
The e-Submission process requires that specific wording and a link to the assessment
declaration is included in your assessment documentation in order to comply with legal and
statutory obligations, and can be used with all RMIT teaching technologies, including;
• Blackboard
• WebLearn
• RMIT’s Google Apps for Education (Gmail, Drive, Sites etc.)
The use of fully electronic submissions saves significant time for both staff and students.
Good practice
• Providing clear advice to students on the e-Submission process as part of their assessment
expectations assists in ensuring that it is straightforward for RMIT students to submit work
electronically.
• Students can submit non-electronic works via conversion by a digital scanner, i.e. paper-based
assessments can be scanned and submitted for assessment via the e-Submission process.
• Establishing a Turnitin assignment in Blackboard is a quick way to provide an e-Submission
process for a class group.
Students must submit all assessment tasks electronically via blackboard unless otherwise directed by their relevant teacher.
Students are not to email or hand assessment tasks to teachers in class unless otherwise directed by their relevant teacher.
