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
This unit of competency specifies the outcomes required to design, size and document the layout of surface and sub-soil stormwater drainage systems up to legal points of discharge.
It covers the preparation for the planning, identification and confirmation of system specifications and requirements, the planning of the system layout and work finalisation processes, including records and documentation
