|Student Assessment TASK 2 Skill Test|
Quality is one of three most important elements in the conduct of a project. Using the trade-off triangle approach, we can see that it ties in with Time and Cost. This unit will allow the student to investigate those attributes of establishing a Quality Control Plan and the management techniques for applying this to the construction environment
The student will understand that in project management, quality control requires the project manager and the project team to inspect the accomplished work to ensure its alignment with the project scope.
When applying these principles in general practice, the student will identify that projects typically have a dedicated quality control team which focuses on this and how to select and manage such QC/ QA teams.
At the completion of this unit students will be able to successfully demonstrate competency in:
- Relating to and identifying customer perception of quality
- Understand the main principles of ISO9000 series in QC Management
- Applying management skills to QA/ QC / Planning
This unit has a nominal duration of 60 hours. This will be broken up into:
- 6 face to face training sessions (4x 4 hr, 2 x 8 hr sessions)
- 28 hours self-directed learning, completion of activities and completion of their assessment tasks
Students will be issued with their workbook prior to the scheduled Classroom session through the Student Suite portal. They must come to the session having already read the workbook and completed some relevant subject activities.
To complete these assessments, you will require access to:
- access to BCA and relevant documents referenced in the BCA

Please refer to the student handbook for further information on re-assessment.
An adjustment is any measure or action that you may require because of a disability, which has the effect of assisting you to access and participate in education and training on the same basis as students without a disability. An adjustment is reasonable if it achieves this purpose while considering factors such as the nature of your disability, your views, and the potential effect of the adjustment on yourself and others, who might be affected, and the costs and benefits of making the adjustment.
We must maintain the academic integrity of a course and consider the requirements or components that are inherent or essential to its nature when assessing whether an adjustment is reasonable. There may be more than one adjustment that is reasonable in a given set of circumstances. We will make adjustments that are reasonable and that do not cause unjustifiable hardship to yourself and our organization.
If at any time whilst you are undertaking the assessment and you require further clarification on the task, or you believe you require an assessment to be adjusted due to a disability or other impacting situations please speak to your trainer/assessor for further information or possible options. During the assessment process your trainer/assessor can assist you with gaining understanding of the task, but they are unable to provide you with the response or any answers.
