Description

This qualification applies to a learning and assessment environment where access to structured on-the-job learning in a workplace may not be available. This qualification is only for delivery in learning institutions.

The qualification is intended for people interested in exposure to an engineering or related working environment with a view to entering into employment in that area. This qualification will equip graduates with knowledge and skills which will enhance their prospects of employment in an engineering or related working environment.

Application

The learning program should develop trade-like skills but not attempt to develop trade-level skills. As an example, the outcome level of welding skills from this qualification is not about learning trade-level welding theory and practice; it is about being introduced to welding, how it can be used to join metal and having the opportunity to weld some metal together. Similarly with machining, the outcome should be something produced on a lathe etc., not the theory and practice of machining. The focus should be on using engineering tools and equipment to produce or modify objects. This needs be done in a safe manner for each learner and those around them.

Delivery

Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) offering this qualification will need to have access to basic engineering equipment and facilities, as well as sufficient open plan workshop facilities where long-term projects, perhaps spanning the duration of the learning, can be completed. The teachers/trainers must be experienced with the knowledge and trade skills to successfully facilitate and motivate skills development in the learners. Trainers and assessors must meet the NVR/AQTF trainer and assessor requirements for training and assessment, vocational competency and professional development.

The learning program should be centred around the major project.

MSAPCI101A Adapt to work in industry is a unit of competency that provides the opportunity for work placement.
