Critical aspects for assessment and evidence required to demonstrate competency in this unit

Assessment must confirm the ability to

comply with operational safety including the risk analysis

prepare and refurbish the destruction site or equipment

prepare instructions and documentation

destroy unexploded ordnance

apply emergency and contingency procedures

Consistency in performance

Competency should be demonstrated in a range of actual or simulated explosive ordnance destruction contexts in a safe and efficient manner

Context of and specific resources for assessment

Context of assessment

Competency should be assessed in the workplace or in a simulated work environment in accordance with all relevant legislation and Defence requirements

Specific resources for assessment

Access is required to

licensed range

unexploded ordnance to be destroyed

Method of assessment

This unit may be assessed with the following unit

DEFEOD Work safely with explosive ordnance

DEFEO101D Work safely with explosive ordnance.

In a public safety environment assessment is usually conducted via direct observation in a training environment or in the workplace via subject matter supervision andor mentoring which is typically recorded in a competency workbook

Assessment is completed using appropriately qualified assessors who select the most appropriate method of assessment

Assessment may occur in an operational environment or in an industryapproved simulated work environment Forms of assessment that are typically used include

direct observation

interviewing the candidate

journals and workplace documentation

third party reports from supervisors

written or oral questions
