Operate and maintain high technology water treatment components

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



1. Prepare to operate high technology water treatment components

1.1. High technology water treatment components of a recirculating aquaculture system (RAS) and other aquaculture equipment and infrastructure are identified and confirmed against a work plan or schedule or other workplace instructions.

1.2. Designated tasks at the work site are prioritised and instructions are confirmed with supervisor.

1.3. Routine pre-operational checks and calibrations of components are carried out according to manufacturer specifications.

1.4. Faulty components are identified, safety tagged, if they cannot be fixed or replaced, and reported to supervisor.

1.5. Abnormal or non-standard conditions within the culture or holding structures or systems are reported following pre-operational checks.

1.6. Changes in environmental parameters or water quality parameters associated with the operation and maintenance of components are identified, assessed and reported to supervisor.

2. Operate and monitor high technology water treatment components

2.1. Automatic or mechanised equipment is operated and maintained.

2.2. Critical flow rates and other water quality parameters are measured and recorded for performance and efficiency.

2.3. Adjustments to operating components are undertaken under supervision to optimise conditions for the culture or holding species.

2.4. Backup components are checked and tested for operational capacity.

2.5. Abnormal or non-standard conditions and other risks are reported.

3. Maintain and repair high technology water treatment components

3.1. Work plan or schedule of required maintenance and repairs is confirmed with supervisor.

3.2. Potential risks to stock are identified and contingency plans confirmed with supervisor.

3.3. Basic tools and equipment and spare parts and repair materials are collected, assessed as serviceable, and taken to worksite.

3.4. Components are serviced under supervision according to manufacturer guidelines.

3.5. Worn or damaged parts or areas are replaced or repaired as instructed using repair techniques and spare parts and repair materials appropriate for the task.

3.6. Components and water supply and disposal systems are returned to working order.

3.7. System is checked for serviceability and performance, and problems are rectified or reported to supervisor.

4. Finalise operation, monitoring and maintenance activities

4.1. Clean up of work area, including repairs and storage of equipment, is supervised and condition report prepared.

4.2. Relevant monitoring and maintenance data, observations or information are recorded legibly and accurately, and any out of range or unusual records checked.

4.3. Compliance and other required reports are prepared and conveyed to senior personnel advising of the effectiveness of monitoring and maintenance, and recommendations made for improvements.

4.4. Feedback on own work performance is sought from supervisor and opportunities to improve identified.
