Performance Evidence
Before competency can be determined, individuals must demonstrate they can
perform the following according to the standard defined in this unit’s elements,
performance criteria and foundation skills:
Knowledge Evidence
mark, cut and process three different flat laminated glass section, including;
o arris and bevel cut glass edges.
Individuals must be able to demonstrate knowledge of:
Assessment Conditions
types and use of personal protection equipment (PPE) required to cut
laminated glass
 workplace procedures to cut laminated glass
 glass handling and storage processes
 templates and patterns
 glass cutting methods and techniques
 use of glass cutting and arising equipment
 template and pattern fabrication
 glass cutting and processing procedures
 workplace glass cutting quality standards.
Assessors must satisfy SNR/AQTF assessor requirements.
Competency is to be assessed in the workplace or a simulated environment that
accurately reflects performance in a real workplace setting.
Where assessment of competency includes third party evidence, individuals
must provide evidence that links them to the laminated glass that they prepared
and cut, e.g. work orders.
Assessors must verify performance evidence through questioning on skills and
knowledge to ensure correct interpretation and application.
The following resources must be made available:
