Overview of Assessment

This unit of competency could be assessed in the workplace or a close simulation of the workplace environment, provided that simulated or project-based assessment techniques fully replicate building design workplace conditions, materials, activities, responsibilities and procedures. Holistic or project-based assessment with other related units is recommended.

A person who demonstrates competency in this unit must be able to provide evidence of the ability to:
• comply with OHS regulations applicable to workplace operations
• apply organisational policies and procedures, including quality assurance requirements where applicable
• produce two and three-dimensional drawings for residential building projects, including at least one orthographic, one isometric and one perspective drawing
• complete working drawings to industry standard and as determined by the project brief.
