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
- Registered Training Organisations
- Trying to find someone to train or assess you? This link lists all the RTOs that are currently registered to deliver SIBBCCS406A, 'Use electricity in beauty therapy treatments'.
- Google Links
- links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
- Reference books for 'Use electricity in beauty therapy treatments' on fishpond.com.au. This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to ntisthis.com for every purchase, so go nuts :)
Elements and Performance Criteria
Elements describe the essential outcomes of a unit of competency.
Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element. Where bold italicised text is used, further information is detailed in the required skills and knowledge section and the range statement. Assessment of performance is to be consistent with the evidence guide.
1 Apply knowledge of electricity to beauty therapy treatments.
1.1 Identify the properties of electrical currents and the forms in which they are used in the beauty therapy treatments according to relevant legislation and workplace policies and procedures.
1.2 Identify relevant principles of static electricity and potential effects on the beauty therapy treatments and take preventive measures.
1.3 Identify and address safety considerations when using electrical equipment in beauty treatments.
1.4 Identify common causes and effects of short circuits and regularly check equipment for deterioration, damage, wear or incorrect wiring procedures.
1.5 Avoid overloaded circuits and their effects by monitoring or restricting the use of power boards, where multiple appliances are connected to the same power board.
1.6 Use electrical safety devices to maintain occupational health and safety and protect sensitive equipment.
2 Perform beauty therapy treatments using direct and alternating current appliances.
2.1 Identify the principles and processes of direct alternating current and relate these to the design and performance of beauty therapy treatments.
2.2 Identify applications for galvanic direct current and alternating current treatments and relate to treatment in a manner that maximises client comfort, and client and own safety.
2.3 Follow occupational health and safety requirements and manufacturers’ safety data to maintain operator and client safety and protect sensitive equipment.
3 Perform beauty therapy treatments using electrical muscle stimulation and micro current equipment.
3.1 Identify and relate the principles and processes of electrical muscle stimulation and micro current treatments to the design and performance of beauty therapy treatments.
3.2 Identify major applications for electrical muscle stimulation and micro current, and relate these to the design and performance of treatment to maximise client comfort, and client and own safety.
3.3 Follow occupational health and safety requirements and manufacturers’ safety data to maintain operator and client safety and protect sensitive equipment.
4 Promote electrical safety.
4.1 Observe correct operation of electrical equipment according to manufacturer user manual and safety data for equipment.
4.2 Apply appropriate safety procedures and report faulty equipment to relevantpersonnel.
4.3 Identify preventive measures and check equipment for wear or deterioration.
4.4 Avoid overloading circuits and recognise and attend to warning signs.
4.5 Store electrical equipment to minimise risk of damage or fire due to static charges.
