Course Description

This unit of competency sets out the knowledge and skills required to undertake basic machining operations under supervision. This involves setting up and machining components by using lathes, milling machines, cut off saws, pedestal grinders and fixed position drilling machines. Marking out skills are also included as necessary in the machining process.
