. and other forms of structured teaching and learning
You will be observed and assessed through their planned activities throughout the duration of the course
Term 4: Week 15 - (am) Topic Introduction and Theory Lecture
Week 15 - (pm) Laboratory Practical Exercises: Commence
Week 16 - Assessments: Written and Practical Test
Students will be able to access course information and learning materials through CANVAS.
CANVAS is an online resource with the lesson plans for each unit. Within CANVAS are the session lessons plans, assessments, resources and other materials required for completion of each unit of competency.
Additional materials maybe provided in class and lists of relevant reference books, resources in the library and accessible Internet sites will be provided where possible. During the course, you will be directed to websites to enhance your knowledge and understanding of difficult concepts.
Overview of Assessment
To be deemed competent you must demonstrate an understanding of all aspects required of the competency.
Regular attendance is necessary.
Assessment methods have been designed to measure your achievement of each competency in a flexible manner over multiple tasks and consist of theory and practical based tasks.
Assessment 1: Theory Assessment - Written Test (Week 16)
The theory assessment will include short answer questions and diagrams as required.
Assessment 2: Practical Assessment – Practical Skills Test (Week 16)
During your practical assessment you will be required to produce and critically evaluate 2 soldered or welded joints.
The assessment tasks listed in this course guide address all the elements and criteria of the requirements of this course.
All email communications will be sent to your RMIT email address and you must regularly check your RMIT emails.
