PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
Changing and setting tooling to make a quality product. 

LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
  • This unit standard has been designed as part of a progression. It is one of a series of unit standards for activities below, at and above this level. The credits assigned to it are based on the assumption that I am learning what is needed for this unit standard as part of my learning for a range of related unit standards at this level or below it.
  • If I have experience in these related activities but do not have credits for them, I can obtain credits by being assessed through a process that recognises prior learning.
  • If I do not have such experience of related activities, then my learning time will be increased. I can choose to be assessed and obtain credits against those other unit standards as I make progress towards the outcomes of this unit standard. 

  • UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
    1. The learner is able to change and set a variety of tooling for production purposes.
    2. The context conditions under which the learner is expected to perform are as follows: time pressure, minimum supervision, accuracy.
