Assessment requirements

Practical Demonstration Checklist

Your trainer may ask you to keep a log book or diary of the work you do on-the-job that relates to the practical components of this unit. This will help them to determine when you've had sufficient hands-on practice in these tasks to undertake the assessment events.

When you are ready to be assessed, your assessor will ask you to complete a range of practical demonstrations, including installing sheet linoleum:

  • using custom designs and pattern scribes, with fillet cove internal and external mitres and heat welded seams

  • in a corridor and connecting room using pre-formed coving with internal and external mitres and heat welded seams

  • in a single room or connecting rooms using butt joins.

As part of the demonstrations, you will be asked to use some or all of the following tools:

  • spatula knife, utility knife with hook, straight and concave blades

  • straight edge, square, chalk, chalk line, tape measure

  • notched trowel, serrated trowel

  • hammer, rubber mallet, hacksaw

  • seam and edge trimmer, wall trimmer

  • dividers, recess scriber, preformed linoleum recess scriber, scribing bar

  • welding gun and accessories

  • gas bottle and gun, hot air gun

  • grooving tool, cove gauging tool

  • pencil cove roller, hand roller, floor roller

  • paint brush, bucket

  • linoleum trolley.

In addition to assessing your ability to physically install linoleum flooring, your assessor will also be checking that you can:

  • follow all work, health and safety requirements and environmental care procedures

  • correctly interpret company documents and work instructions

  • communicate and work effectively with other workers in the area

  • prevent damage to goods, equipment and products

  • work productively and produce a high quality job

  • modify activities and techniques used to suit different sites and working conditions.

Make sure you talk to your trainer or supervisor about any of the details you don't understand, or aren't ready to demonstrate, before the assessment events are organised. This will give you time to get the hang of the tasks you'll need to perform, so that you'll feel more confident when the time comes to be assessed.
