Unit descriptor

In a typical scenario an operations technician patrols areas of pipeline or follows pipelines across a variety of terrains looking for problems which require maintenance or reporting. During the course of their work they must check the vehicle for mechanical soundness before leaving base, ensure it is securely and adequately packed, make certain their communications equipment and contact schedule are in order and generally be prepared for long periods off-road.

Application of the unit

Generally the operations technician would be part of a team during field trips, though he/she may be required to undertake limited trips during which they would be expected to be capable of demonstrating competence in all parts of this unit. At all times they would be liaising and cooperating with their base station.

The operations technician will:

  • check their vehicle daily for damage
  • ensure fuels and lubricant levels are maintained
  • effect minor repairs
  • communicate with their base station
  • This unit has no prerequisites. However operators will have the appropriate class of driver's licence before taking charge of the vehicle.
