==Range Statements==

Coatings



* A range of aqueous coatings, UV varnishes and machine varnishes



Colour matching systems



* Use of visual colour assessment and densitometry to match basic standard tints under controlled lighting conditions



Machines



* A range of printing machines or dedicated coating machines with manual, semi-automated, fully automated or computerised process control



In-line processes



* Minor processes that are integral to this competency can include basic in-line operations such as perforating, numbering, date coding, slitting that do not in themselves constitute another defined unit of competency. Where a major in-line process is defined as a separate competency (eg flat-bed cutting, folding) it should be assessed as such



Substrate types



* Paper and paper board and other substrates as appropriate



Substrate handling



* Narrow or wide reel handling, and small and large sheet systems



Degree of autonomy



* Working to defined procedures under limited supervision
