Provide documentation and support for fabrication of fire sprinkler 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

Reference books for 'Provide documentation and support for fabrication of fire sprinkler systems' on This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to for every purchase, so go nuts :)

Elements and Performance Criteria



1. Determine the impact on fabrication plans of installation risks and constraints.

1.1. On-site health and safety risks relating to the installation of sprinkler systems are identified.

1.2. Constraints relating to access to on-site installation locations for sprinkler system pipes and components are identified.

1.3. Impact of installation risks and constraints on fabrication plans for fire sprinkler system pipes and components is considered and cost-effective and manageable solutions are determined.

2. Plan and specify pipes, fittings and components.

2.1. Current accurate drawingsand documentation are obtained and analysed, and measurements are taken on-site during construction if possible to confirm the accuracy of building dimensions.

2.2. The dimensions and design drawing locations of the selected fittings and components are checked and confirmed.

2.3. Fittings and components are planned and specified for ease and safety of installation and to provide cost-effective solutions.

2.4. Pipe lengths are calculated, specified and numbered on relevant drawings.

3. Produce fabrication documentation.

3.1. Appropriate pipe materials and features are confirmed and specified.

3.2. Supplier is consulted as necessary to discuss and negotiate efficient and cost-effective pipe fabrication options.

3.3. Individual pipe specifications are numbered and detailed on fabrication lists.

3.4. Drawings are supplied to support fabrication specifications, as required.
