Point four of the special notes of the unit states: Drawings must meet NZS/AS 1100.101:1992 Technical Drawing – General Principles, which is available at: http://www.standards.co.nz. However, this standard is no longer available on Standards NZ.

Ruling

This ruling allows for standard NZS/AS 1100.101:1992 Technical Drawing – General Principles to be replaced with the abridged version of the standard, which is: SAA/SNZ HB1: 1994, Technical Drawing for students.

Issue

The explanatory notes allow for either hand drawn or CAD drawings. If going with CAD, E.R. 1.2 and 1.3 become irrelevant.

Ruling

This ruling allows for E.R.1.2 and 1.3 to be exempted from the assessment if CAD drawing are used.

The following exceptions have been applied to to the assessment of unit 18903 v2 (L3, C4)

Issue

Performance criteria 1.2 refers to z-tooth where it should have been z-saw.

Ruling

This ruling replaces the term z-tooth with the term z-saw.

Issue

Performance Criteria 2.1 range statement refers to nomenclature.

Ruling

This ruling omits assessment on this item from the range statement.

Whilst the criteria will remain the same in the range statement, learners are not required to include nomenclature in demonstrating their knowledge of ducting and duct fittings. This is because it has been determined that six ducting parameters instead of seven are sufficient for the unit standard.
