Course Description

This unit of competency specifies the outcomes required for design and set out of roads and associated engineering structures. It requires the ability to undertake all aspects of survey design from understanding client and registered surveyor requirements and the special characteristics of a given site, to applying relevant legal and statutory requirements to the design. The selection of appropriate equipment, procedures and personnel is essential to performing the task safely and efficiently. Functions will entail complying with and developing or amending organisational guidelines.

Overview of Assessment

The assessment is conducted in both theoretical and practical aspects of the course according to the performance criteria set in the National Training Package. Assessment may incorporate a variety of methods including written/oral activities and demonstration of practical skills to the relevant industry standards. Participants are advised that they are likely to be asked to personally demonstrate their assessment activities to their teacher/assessor. Feedback will be provided throughout the course. To successfully complete this course you will be required to demonstrate competency in each assessment task detailed under Assessment Tasks:
