VU22552 - Produce advanced engineering drawings for a reinforced concrete structure
This unit of competency describes the knowledge and skills required to produce advanced reinforced concrete drawings, in accordance with required practices and conventions as outlined in AS1100.501 and AS3600.
No licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
This unit contains employability skills.
Application of the Unit
This unit of competency applies to a person working at paraprofessional level in a civil engineering environment where drawing of advanced reinforced concrete structures is prepared.
Elements describe the essential outcomes of a unit of competency. Elements describe actions or outcomes that are demonstrable and assessable.
Performance criteria describe the required performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element – they identify the standard for the element. Where bold / italicized text is used, further information or explanation is detailed in the required skills and knowledge and/or the range statement.
Assessment of performance is to be consistent with the evidence guide.
1. Identify reinforced concrete structure to be drawn
2. Plan drafting approach
3. Complete the drawings
4. Present and archive final drawings
