Milling machine familiarisation (road planer)


Overview
The purpose of this standard is to provide the candidate with the knowledge to become familiar with the milling machine controls and systems, but without driving or operating it. This is ideal for experienced drivers/operators/maintainers of milling machines who need to use a different brand or an updated milling machine.

CITB has developed this standard in discussion with industry

Duration

Minimum 1 day of 6 learning hours

Purpose/Scope

The purpose of this standard is to provide the candidate with the knowledge to become familiar with the milling machine controls and systems, but without driving or operating it. This is ideal for experienced drivers/operators/maintainers of milling machines who need to use a different brand or an updated milling machine.

The scope of this standard covers:

  • milling machines used on highways and/or roadways
  • main areas of the machine including hazardous areas/zones
  • operating envelope including angles
  • safety, hazards, risks, and controls
  • alarms and emergency systems
  • controls, indicators, and displays
  • process for loading
  • process for unloading
  • levelling system(s) function and operation
  • daily maintenance
  • pre-start checks.

Occupational relevance

Training delivered against this standard would be relevant to the following occupational group(s):

  • operative and craft
  • supervision.

Candidate pre-requisites

There are no candidate pre-requisites as part of this standard.

Instruction/Supervision

As a minimum, course instructors must be able to demonstrate that, in relation to this standard, they have:

  • a train the trainer or instructional techniques course certificate
  • successfully completed training to this standard
  • at least 2 years relevant industrial experience
  • a verifiable CV.

Delivery

The following method(s) may be used in the delivery of this standard:

  • off the job simulation in a workshop
  • on the job in a safe environment

The delivery requires a milling machine that is turned off during training.

All materials and equipment must be of a suitable quality and quantity for candidates to achieve learning outcomes, and must comply with relevant legislation.

The class size and candidate/instructor ratio must allow training to be delivered in a safe manner and enable candidates to achieve the learning outcomes.

Assessment

For the successful completion of training, the trainer will be required to make a declaration of the learner’s contribution during the course and that they are confident the learner has understood the content of the course.

Quality assurance

Quality assurance against this standard will require initial approval of the training organisation and their content mapped to the standard.

CITB will also conduct an approval intervention, either desk-based or centre visit, to ensure the training organisation can meet the requirements of the training standard.

Approved training organisations (ATOs) will be required to present information on records of training and assessment upon request to CITB for desk based analysis. They will also be visited annually by the CITB quality assurance team.

Renewal

No renewal/refreshment requirements - There are no mandatory renewal or recommended refreshment requirements for this standard.

Approval date

November 2018

Review cycle

Either on request or in 3 years from approval date (of the standard).

Learning outcomes

The candidate will be able to:
