Course overview

Course Description

This course is for people wanting to enter or currently employed in the
civil construction industry. It is suitable for year 12 school leavers and
reflects the role of people providing design support for professional
engineers.  

You will learn to perform tasks involving a broad range of varied
activities most of which are complex and non-routine. Examples include
civil drafting and the underpinning principles associated
with civil design such as engineering mathematics, statics and strength of
materials.
 
You will be assessed in a work environment or a simulated environment as
specified in the Resources and Infrastructure Training Package. You will be
advised of the requirements relating to accessing a workplace(s) and
relevant WHS safety requirements at enrolment.

Infrastructure Industry Training Package (Release 3.2).
 
The qualification packaging rules state:
 
Successful completion of twelve (12) units of competency made up of:
- a minimum of two (2) units of competency from Group A units listed in
RII40809 - a minimum of two (2) units of competency from Group B Drafting
units listed in RII40809
- a minimum of two (2) units of competency from Group C Design units
listed in RII40809
- a minimum of two (2) units of competency from Group D Technical units
listed in RII40809
- up to one (1) unit may come from this, or any other Training Package or
accredited course.
 
Units of competency chosen must
- be relevant to the competency requirements for the job function
- reflect the competency profile for the occupation at the enterprise level
- in the case of accredited course units of competency, not duplicate in
part or in whole any unit from a Training Package
 
Care must be taken to ensure that all prerequisites specified within
imported units, or units chosen as electives, are complied with.
