This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to develop and refine a range of techniques to produce technical drawings. It outlines the ways technical drawing can be applied to a range of contexts where visual representation is required. People working in many industries require the skills and knowledge in this unit, and the unit is written to allow for contextualisation to a particular industry context. This work would usually be carried out independently, although guidance would be available if required.
