Elements and Performance Criteria

Elements 

Performance Criteria 

Elements describe the essential outcomes

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element. Where bold italicised text is used, further information is detailed in the range of conditions section

1. Identify test objectives

1.1 Workplace procedures to test and trial components of plant, tools, equipment, product or systems are identified and verified

1.2 Instructions  and work plans are interpreted to identify processes and materials to be used in testing

1.3 Materials and components to be tested are obtained

1.4 Test objectives are identified and confirmed with appropriate personnel

2. Determine test methodology

2.1 Sequence and specified procedures for test are determined according to workplace procedures and manufacturer instructions

2.2 Test tools and equipment are identified and obtained according to job requirements

2.3 Stakeholders  are identified and consulted and test is modified to incorporate feedback

3. Identify and allocate resources to test

3.1 Resources and appropriate personnel required to test material or component are identified and allocated

3.2 Test plan is prepared according to workplace procedures, and confirmed with relevant stakeholders

4. Monitor test

4.1 Testing is monitored according to workplace procedures

4.2 Support is provided to personnel conducting the test

4.3 Modifications to test plan are proposed to stakeholders and accepted changes are implemented

5. Complete work processes

5.1 Feedback from involved stakeholders is sought on test or trial and integrated into procedure documentation

5.2 Test procedures are documented and recorded according to workplace procedures

5.3 Test reports are distributed according to work plan and workplace procedures

Comment 

Release 1 

Unit updated to reflect the new standards for Training Packages

Replaces AUMFTK5001 Establish a test or trial for components of plant, tooling, equipment or systems

Performance Evidence

Before competency can be determined, individuals must have competently performed testing on a minimum of two occasions.

Individuals must demonstrate they can:

  • test components of plant, tools, equipment, product or systems according to required workplace test and trial procedures
  • complete test record work sheets
  • communicate test results with co-workers
  • establish and monitor tests or trials and review and report test results
  • modify test activities to cater for variations in workplace.

Knowledge Evidence

Individuals must be able to demonstrate knowledge of:

  • work health and safety (WHS) requirements and workplace procedures to test components, plant, tools, equipment, product and systems
  • industry standards and codes of practice relating to testing components, equipment and systems
  • types and operation of common automotive production components, equipment and systems
  • types and limitations of common testing techniques for automotive production components, equipment and systems
  • procedures for testing automotive production components, equipment and systems
  • processes for recording and reporting test outcomes
  • test work sheets and records.

Assessment Conditions

Assessors must satisfy SNR/AQTF assessor requirements.

Competency is to be assessed in the workplace or a simulated environment that accurately reflects performance in a real workplace setting.

Where assessment of competency includes third-party evidence, individuals must provide evidence that links them to the automotive production components, equipment and systems that they have tested, e.g. test work sheets.

Assessors must verify performance evidence through questioning on skills and knowledge to ensure correct interpretation and application.

The following resources must be made available:

  • automotive manufacturing workplace or simulated workplace
  • vehicle automotive production components, equipment and systems requiring testing
  • test equipment required for the testing of automotive production components, equipment and systems
  • test plan, instructions and procedures relating to tests of components, equipment and systems.
