Analyse, design and evaluate complex special hazard fire 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

ELEMENT

PERFORMANCE CRITERIA

1. Select appropriate special hazard fire suppression solutions.

1.1. Research is conducted to determine the appropriate fire suppression solutions to address the building or facility's risk profile and the special hazard standards that have been identified for use.

1.2. A cost-benefit and efficiency analysis of the range of fire suppression systems is conducted.

1.3. Recommendations for the selection of preferred solutions are made to the appropriate personnel.

2. Select appropriate special hazard fire detection and occupant warning solutions.

2.1. Research is conducted to determine the appropriate fire detection and occupant warning solutions to address the building or facility's risk profile, ambient conditions and the selected fire suppression solution.

2.2. A cost-benefit and efficiency analysis of the range of fire detection and warning systems is conducted.

2.3. Recommendations for the selection of preferred solutions are made to the appropriate personnel.

3. Set up special hazard fire systems design drawing.

3.1. Relevant project drawings and documentation are requested, received, named and filed according to workplace procedures.

3.2. Drawings are cleaned to leave minimal essential information.

3.3. Layers showing designs of other services are imported into clean architectural or structural drawings.

3.4. Details from drawings of floor or building adjacent to the areas under design consideration are added if these affect the design.

3.5. The detailed design drawing is named, filed and backed up according to workplace procedures.

4. Lay out the special hazard system design.

4.1. A site visit is conducted if possible to confirm dimensions and assess installation risks and constraints.

4.2. The interactions between the various systems are identified and planned.

4.3. The exact locations of sprinklers and other fittings are determined and notated on the drawing according to relevant codes and standards.

4.4. The most efficient and workable layout and location of system components are determined and notated on the drawing.

4.5. Dimensions are calculated, checked and notated on the drawing.

5. Calculate the requirements for the special hazard solutions.

5.1. Calculations to identify and confirm the required capacity of the special hazards systems are undertaken.

5.2. Infrastructure to support the special hazard solution is identified and quantified.

5.3. Shortfalls in water pressure are determined and the sizes of pumps and tanks required for water spray systems are calculated.

6. Evaluate and implement special hazard fire system solutions.

6.1. The components of the special hazard fire system solution are gathered from relevant expert personnel as required.

6.2. Special hazard system design drawings are evaluated for efficiency and effectiveness.

6.3. Design drawings are submitted to relevant personnel within the scheduled timeframe.

6.4. Required amendments to design drawings are made or negotiated as required.

6.5. Final approved design drawings are processed and distributed according to project and workplace requirements.

6.6. Fittings and components are selected and ordered.
