Carry out operator maintenance on hand and power tools, including the grinding of:

chisels

hard plane blades or irons

drill bits

Work effectively with others

Modify activities to cater for variations in workplace contexts and environment

Resource Implications

Furniture making sector hand and power tools. Materials used in the manufacturing and/or installation of furnishing products.

Method of Assessment

Assessment should be by direct observation of tasks and questioning on underpinning knowledge.

Assessment methods must confirm consistency of performance over time and in a range of workplace relevant contexts.

Assessment may be in conjunction with assessment of other relevant units of competency.

Context of Assessment

Assessment may occur on the job or in a workplace simulated facility with relevant process equipment, materials, work instructions and deadlines.


Submission Requirements
