Design, size and lay out heating and cooling systems

Formats and tools

Unit Description
Reconstruct the unit from the xml and display it as an HTML page.
Assessment Tool
an assessor resource that builds a framework for writing an assessment tool
Assessment Template
generate a spreadsheet for marking this unit in a classroom environment. Put student names in the top row and check them off as they demonstrate competenece for each of the unit's elements and performance criteria.
Assessment Matrix
a slightly different format than the assessment template. A spreadsheet with unit names, elements and performance criteria in separate columns. Put assessment names in column headings to track which performance criteria each one covers. Good for ensuring that you've covered every one of the performance criteria with your assessment instrument (all assessement tools together).
Wiki Markup
mark up the unit in a wiki markup codes, ready to copy and paste into a wiki page. The output will work in most wikis but is designed to work particularly well as a Wikiversity learning project.
Evidence Guide
create an evidence guide for workplace assessment and RPL applicants
Competency Mapping Template
Unit of Competency Mapping – Information for Teachers/Assessors – Information for Learners. A template for developing assessments for a unit, which will help you to create valid, fair and reliable assessments for the unit, ready to give to trainers and students
Observation Checklist
create an observation checklist for workplace assessment and RPL applicants. This is similar to the evidence guide above, but a little shorter and friendlier on your printer. You will also need to create a seperate Assessor Marking Guide for guidelines on gathering evidence and a list of key points for each activity observed using the unit's range statement, required skills and evidence required (see the unit's html page for details)

Self Assessment Survey
A form for students to assess thier current skill levels against each of the unit's performance criteria. Cut and paste into a web document or print and distribute in hard copy.
Moodle Outcomes
Create a csv file of the unit's performance criteria to import into a moodle course as outcomes, ready to associate with each of your assignments. Here's a quick 'how to' for importing these into moodle 2.x

Elements and Performance Criteria


Prepare for design.


Nature and scope of design task are identified and confirmed.


Work health and safety (WHS) and environmental requirements planning, sizing and documenting the layout of heating and cooling systems are adhered to throughout the work.


Work is organised and sequenced in conjunction with others involved in or affected by the work.


Tools and equipmentrequired for designing, sizing and documenting the layout of heating and cooling systems, including personal protective equipment, are selected and checked for serviceability.


Work area in which design process is to be conducted is prepared.


Identify system requirements.


Information and specifications for required work are obtained and confirmed, if necessary by site inspection.


Statutory and regulatory authorities'requirements relevant to work are consulted and applied to all aspects of the work, using relevant information.


Heating and cooling requirements are determined from building drawings, plans and specifications.


Air conditioningor small bore heating system is sized to provide for required heating and cooling load and to provide required piping and ducting according to standards, and regulatory authorities' and workplace requirements.


Sustainability principles and concepts are observed when preparing for and undertaking work process.


Design system layout.


Layout of heating and cooling system is designed according to building plans, relevant standards and workplace procedures.


Materialsrequired are specified and optimised according to standards from the proposed design.


Plans are recorded according to regulatory authorities' and workplace requirements.


Restore work area.


Work area is restored according to workplace procedures.


Tools and equipment used in the process are refurbished and left according to workplace procedures.


Documentation, including work backup, is completed according to workplace requirements.
