UNIT OF COMPETENCY

UEGNSG411A – Maintain cathodic protection systems

UEGNSG412A – Install cathodic protection systems

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Cathodic Protection is a method applied to control corrosion of metal surfaces. Cathodic Protection converts all of the anodic (active) sites on the metal surface to cathodic (passive) sites by supplying electrical current from an alternate source.

1 – UEGNSG411A – Maintain cathodic protection systems This unit covers maintaining cathodic protection (CP) systems to prevent corrosion of steel gas pipelines in accordance with relevant legislation, code, regulations and established procedures. It encompasses the types of cathodic protection faults, as well as the location and the type of electrical equipment used, testing procedures and related maintenance requirements.

2 – UEGNSG412A – Install cathodic protection systems This unit covers installing cathodic protection (CP) systems to prevent corrosion of steel pipelines in accordance with relevant legislation, code, regulations and established procedures. It encompasses appropriate installation locations for maintaining cathodic protection system; components of the system; representation of other utilities; types of drawings and specifications; test equipment; types of cathodic protection faults.

SUPPORT

Kevesther will provide effective links and networks with relevant agencies to support participation and achieve successful outcomes for the learners. Where additional support is required outside the limits of Kevesther, any cost will be to the learner. Kevesther will assist you in finding a suitable agency to meet your needs.

REASONABLE ADJUSTMENT

All students are required to do an LLN. This assists your trainer to identify if there are further support needs required. Kevesther considers the individual learner’s needs in the assessment process. Where appropriate, reasonable adjustment is applied to take into account the individual learner’s needs. The trainer will inform the learner about the assessment process and provide the learner with the opportunity to challenge the result of the assessment and be reassessed if necessary.

DURATION

The course duration is self-paced learning with theory online followed with practical training onsite. The duration is aligned to the individual learner’s training and assessment plan to enable them to progress through their training at their own rate, without being locked into fixed time periods. This involves a strong partnership between Kevesther as the RTO and the client which will allow the student to complete their training. Practical components are performed in the field to minimize disruption to the operation. Simulated training is also provided to compliment workplace delivery.

ASSESSMENT/RPL

Recognition of Prior Learning is available to all learners. This is an important assessment pathway, particularly for people who are considering doing study. The recognition gained may considerably reduce the study time needed to get a qualification. RPL is a process that must take place at the commencement of training. The RPL assessment may include workplace observation, interviews and professional conversations, work samples and documented evidence. The program will be delivered through tasks that will simulate the specific industry environment and supports the development of the practical skills and theoretical knowledge require to support the achievement of competency in this course. A range of teaching and learning strategies will be used to deliver the competencies. These include: – Practical Tasks – Group work and individual work tasks – Face to face trainer led theory classes/meetings – Activities in simulated work environments (as per training package requirements) – On-the-job training (conducted on-site at the client workplace)
