Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course you will be able to interpret information, access software, develop drawings, mark and cut out shapes, perform calculations, save, document and communicate data plus shut down computers.

Details of Learning Activities

In general your training is contextualised according to the company’s production processes undertaken as a part of the trainees normal work duties.

Your tasks are selected for training and explanation of the task to be undertaken is given by the trainer and the correct procedure discussed. The task is demonstrated by the trainer and underpinning skills and knowledge are developed.

When the trainer is confident you are capable of undertaking the task safely you will then do the task. During this time your work would be monitored by the trainer and questioning and further instruction given.

You will also be given workplace based tasks and activities to complete and practice between visits. Any activities and work performed between visits are reviewed and further training is undertaken accordingly.

RMIT University learning resources are used to support your training.

Teaching Schedule

In general you will be taught by 6 means within a workplace training context as follows:

1. Introduction and overview of course. Basics of skills required and course content 2 hours
2. Use of learning resources and basic skills development 2 hours
3. Workshop 6 hours
4. Complete manuals 4 hours
5. Supervised skill development to competency 44 hours
6. Consolidation of skills and assessment 2 hours

You will practice skills and understanding as a part of your workplace duties between sessions. Activities and work performed between visits are reviewed in the following session and further training is undertaken accordingly

Overview of Assessment

Assessment will be in the form of observation of your ability to interpret information, access software, develop drawings, mark and cut out shapes, perform calculations, save, document and communicate data plus shut down computers. Also by questioning for underpinning knowledge.

Assessment Tasks

You will be assessed by observation of your as you identify and interpret information, access software, develop drawings, mark and cut out shapes, perform calculations, save, document and communicate data plus shut down computers (you can check the performance criteria above for more detials of these skills). You will be questioned for underpinning knowledge for all these operations.
