Conduct a range of surveys on domestic commercial vessels

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

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.


Plan and prepare for survey task


Relevant standards for vessel hull and superstructure are accurately identified and accessed to support survey task


Vessel survey regime is identified and relevant regulatory requirements, organisational requirements and procedures for survey scope are accessed and reviewed


Vessel survey regime is confirmed against regulatory and organisational requirements


Survey scope and depth is confirmed against relevant regulatory and organisational requirements


Survey purpose, objectives and variations are identified with relevant personnel


Operational limits, certificate of operations and previous certificates of survey are reviewed to identify and take into consideration any special conditions, equivalent solutions, specific areas of operations and other regulatory limitations, exceptions or conditions that may impact on survey task


Survey equipment and tools to carry out survey are accurately identified, selected and checked prior to survey task


Confirm features of vessel and approved plans


Types of hull machinery and systems common to domestic commercial vessels are accurately identified and regulatory or additional standards are accessed and reviewed for use in survey


Common materials used in hull construction and superstructure are identified and regulatory or additional standards are accessed and reviewed for use in survey


Set of approved plans is obtained and read prior to start of survey


Conduct non periodic vessel surveys


Type of survey is determined and full preparations are made to ensure successful completion of survey


Vessel survey is carried out according to scope of survey, regulatory requirements and approved plans


Changes to operational equipment or equivalent solutions are identified and examined for fitness both in or out of water as required by survey schedule


Non conformance to approved plans or regulatory requirements are identified and appropriate follow-up action is carried out


Vessel plans and supporting survey documentation are altered according to organisational and regulatory practices to ensure they reflect ‘as-built’ vessel


Vessel systems are surveyed to ensure they meet statutory requirements


Report and act on non-compliance


Non-compliance is detected, recorded and reported according to regulatory and organisational requirements


Specialist support services are identified and sourced as appropriate


Risks arising from detected non-compliance are reported and communicated to relevant personnel


Relevant provisions of legislation appropriate to level of risk detected are identified and followed


Appropriate reports and documentation relating to survey are developed and managed according to organisational and regulatory requirements
