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
HLTIN301C Comply with infection control policies and procedures
HLTWHS200A Participate in WHS processes
This unit of competency describes the skills and knowledge required to transfer oral records and mount models on an articulator in the reference determined by the clinician. You will mount the registration rims constructed in previous exercises on different types of articulators as required for the type of dental appliance you are constructing - eg. full denture, partial denture. Once mounted you will transfer the oral records from the wax registration rim to the plaster model.
All procedures are carried out in accordance with work health and safety (WHS) policies and procedures, current infection control guidelines, Australian and New Zealand Standards, state/territory legislative requirements and organisation policy.
National Codes, Titles, Elements and Performance Criteria
National Element Code & Title:
HLTDT304D Articulate models and transfer records
1. Select and prepare the articulator
1.1 Apply standard precautions when receiving, handling and working on dental materials
1.2 Decontaminate occlusal registration rims according to infection control guidelines
1.3 Confirm requirements of prescription
1.4 Select and adjust articulator in accordance with prescription
1.5 Ensure all adjustable settings of the articulator are set to their neutral or zero settings
1.6 Identify the mounting method to be used
2. Select and prepare materials
2.1 Position models and oral records in articulator for a range of prosthetic appliances
2.2 Prepare mounting materials and apply to models
2.3 Establish and secure centric records
2.4 Remove excess material and smooth to produce a neat finish
2.5 Clean equipment
3. Transfer oral records to articulator
3.1 Transpose records as provided
3.2 Record midline
3.3 Set and record vertical height
3.4 Set the condylar angles to the prescription given
On completion of this course you will be able to demonstrate, on a consistent basis, the process involved in articulating models and transferring records using a range of oral records. The skills acquired will allow you to articulate models for a range of dental appliances following a prescription given by the clinician and also allow you to transfer crucial information given by the oral record.

The class is scheduled for delivery to the NON-APPRENTICE groups in the Lecture theatre of Building 154 RMIT (within the Royal Dental Hospital Melbourne) Notification will be provided via student email if the date or location change. The class will be delivered in conjunction with the unit of competence - HLTDT303D/DENT5783C Construct Registration Rims.
The class is scheduled for delivery to the APPRENTICE group in the Lecture theatre of Building 154 RMIT (within the Royal Dental Hospital Melbourne) Notification will be provided via student email if the date or location change. The class will be delivered in conjunction with the unit of competence - HLTDT303D/DENT5783C Construct Registration Rims.
Following the delivery of the theory class, practical exercises will be undertaken in the laboratory.
Class schedules are detailed in the timetables provided on Blackboard (subject to change at the discrection of RMIT, in this event notification will be provided to your student email);
Practical classes will be delivered in the simulated environment at RMIT where the Teacher will provide demonstration and assistance as you construct undertake the following processes.
• Fixed movement articulation
• Semi-adjustable articulation
• Face-bow transfer articulation
The TIER 2 exercises are made available if you complete all of the previous exercises and are seeking further practice prior to the assessments. The time guides for the TIER 2 exercises are reduced and require a ’self-managed approach’ to complete the exercise.
TIER 2 - Movable articulation

Overview of Assessment
You will be assessed in a simulated workplace and under a normal range of work conditions.
You will be assessed on both the essential knowledge and the demonstration of essential skills through;
- Completion of practical exercises - including detailed self reflection of each exercise
- Practical exam - Articulation of F/F registration rims (previously constructed in ’Construct Registration Rims’ practical exam) on a fixed movement articulator within the time limit of 1 hour.
- Theory exam - pass mark 60%
You will attempt the following practical exercises under supervision of the teacher and you will be graded with either a Px (Satisfactory) or NYC (Not Satisfactory) according to the assessment guidelines outlined in the practical exercise book; in accordance with the training package elements & essential skills.
1. Fixed movement articulation
2. Semi-adjustable articulation
3. Face-bow transfer articulation
The TIER 2 exercises are made available if you complete all of the previous exercises and are seeking further practice prior to the assessments. The time guides for the TIER 2 exercises are reduced and require a ’self-managed approach’ to complete the exercise. If you attempt the following practical exercises you will be graded with either a Px (Satisfactory) or NYC (Not
Satisfactory) according to the assessment guidelines outlined in the practical exercise book; in accordance with the training package elements & essential skills.
1. TIER 2 - Movable articulation
Upon completion of an exercise and prior to submission for assessment, all exercises undertaken in the practical classes will require you to provide a detailed reflection of your own work focussing on areas of the appliance that were successful as well as areas that could be improved upon next time.
The practical exam will take place under supervision in the simulated working environment at RMIT. The exam will take place under exam conditions and you will be given details of the requirements and assessment guidelines in the practical book available in class and on BlackBoard.
PRAC EXAM - Articulate Models and Transfer Records
The theory exam will be conducted under supervision at RMIT under exam conditions.
Articulate Models and Transfer Records - Theoretical examination - pass mark 60%
To achieve a grade of CA (Competency Achieved) for the unit HLTDT304D/DENT5784C Articulate Models and Transfer Records you are required to obtain a pass result (PX or CA) for the following theoretical and practical assessments that are used to measure; elements, performance criteria, essential knowledge and essential skills as outlined in the health training package.
