Performance Evidence

Before competency can be determined, individuals must have competently finished and painted body and part surfaces on a minimum of two occasions.

Individuals must demonstrate they can:

  • perform work according to work health and safety (WHS) and environmental procedures
  • clean, degrease and prepare vehicle body and part surfaces for painting
  • identify paint specifications and application methods
  • use spray painting tools and equipment safely and effectively
  • mix and apply paint according to job specifications
  • identify and rectify paint defects according to workplace quality standards or specifications
  • complete vehicle body and part surface finishing and painting work sheets.

Knowledge Evidence

Individuals must be able to demonstrate knowledge of:

  • WHS and environmental procedures relating to finishing and painting vehicle and body part surfaces
  • procedures for finishing vehicle body and part surfaces for painting
  • procedures for painting vehicle body and part surfaces, including:
  • types, application and operation of vehicle body painting equipment
  • processes for calculating and mixing paint materials
  • techniques for applying paint material
  • paint viscosity
  • paint defects and paint defect rectification techniques
  • methods of finishing painted body and part surfaces
  • methods of sourcing and interpreting components of safety data sheets (SDS) relating to finishing and painting vehicle body and part surfaces.

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 vehicle body and part surfaces that they have finished and painted, e.g. 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 workplace or simulated workplace
  • workplace instructions relating to finishing and painting vehicle body and part surfaces
  • original equipment manufacturer (OEM) specifications of vehicle body and part surfaces
  • vehicle body and part surfaces requiring finishing and painting
  • finishing tools and equipment for vehicle body and part surfaces
  • paint measuring equipment
  • primers, paint and clear coats
  • paint specifications
  • personal protective equipment (PPE) for finishing and painting vehicle body and part surfaces
  • spray painting guns, tools and equipment
  • approved spray painting and preparation booths.
