    Critical Cross-field Outcomes (CCFO): 

    UNIT STANDARD CCFO IDENTIFYING 
    The learner is able to identify and solve problems in which responses show that responsible decisions using critical and creative thinking have been applied. This is when they determine the time and speed for the removal and movement of the timber from the kilns to the cooling shed. 

    UNIT STANDARD CCFO WORKING 
    This will be demonstrated when a learner works effectively with others as a member of the team when they unload and de-stack timber from the trolleys. 

    UNIT STANDARD CCFO ORGANISING 
    This will be displayed when the learner applies the principles of health and safety to ensure that harm to both other workers and the environment is avoided. 

    UNIT STANDARD CCFO COLLECTING 
    The learner is able to collect, organize and critically evaluate information by selecting the appropriate equipment when uploading and de-stacking hot timber from the kilns. 

    UNIT STANDARD CCFO SCIENCE 
    The learner is able to use science and technology effectively by identifying the rationale for the removal of timber from kilns to cooling shed on time. The learner is also able to determine the impact this can have on production if this is not done according to schedule.
