Version 1.0
Issue Date: November 2018


Qualification -
Unit of Competency SFIAQUA302C - Construct or install stock culture, holding and farm structures
Description This unit of competency involves constructing or installing stock culture or holding structures or systems and farm structures. This may include constructing a water supply and disposal or effluent system for closed or semi-closed structures.Licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements may apply to this unit. Therefore it will be necessary to check with the relevant state or territory regulators for current licensing, legislative or regulatory requirements before undertaking this unit.
Employability Skills This unit contains employability skills.
Learning Outcomes and Application The construction techniques required may vary with the type of structure or system. More demanding construction and/or installation activities will require the employment or engagement of qualified tradespersons or the attainment of appropriate licences to meet state/territory and local government requirements. Licences may be required if operating: load-shifting equipment, including forkliftsvehiclesvessels.All enterprise or workplace procedures and activities are carried out according to relevant government regulations, licensing and other compliance requirements, including occupational health and safety (OHS) guidelines and ecologically sustainable development (ESD) principles. Equipment operation, maintenance, repairs and calibrations are undertaken in a safe manner that conforms to manufacturer instructions. Appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) is selected, checked, used and maintained.
Duration and Setting X weeks, nominally xx hours, delivered in a classroom/online/blended learning setting.

Evidence Required

List the assessment methods to be used and the context and resources required for assessment. Copy and paste the relevant sections from the evidence guide below and then re-write these in plain English.

The evidence guide provides advice on assessment and must be read in conjunction with the performance criteria, required skills and knowledge, range statement and the Assessment Guidelines for the Training Package.

Overview of assessment

Critical aspects for assessment evidence required to demonstrate competence in this unit

Assessment must confirm the ability to:

construct or install stock culture, holding and farm structures following a construction plan and enterprise procedures.

Assessment must confirm knowledge of:

construction techniques required for a specific task.

Context of and specific resources for assessment

Assessment is to be conducted at the workplace or in a simulated work environment.

Resources may include:

construction plan

coordinator/supervisor overseeing the construction or installation

resources as identified in the construction plan

site for construction or installation.

Method of assessment

The following assessment methods are suggested:

demonstration of construction techniques

project work, for example, constructing or installing at least one (1) stock culture or holding structure and one (1) farm structure that would be considered typical of those found on aquaculture enterprises in the region

written and oral short-answer testing.

Overview of assessment

This unit may be assessed holistically with other units within a qualification.
