Elements and Performance Criteria

Elements 

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance Criteria 

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

1. Prepare to adjust bicycle

1.1 Job requirements are determined from workplace instructions and bicycle to be adjusted is identified

1.2 Hazards associated with the work are identified and reported to workplace supervisor

1.3 Bicycle is inspected to determine component adjustment requirements according to manufacturer specifications and workplace procedures

1.4 Inspection findings, including adjustment recommendations, are reported according to workplace procedures and authorisation to proceed is obtained

2. Carry out adjustments to bicycle components

2.1 Tools and equipment required for adjusting bicycle are identified and checked for serviceability and adjustment method is confirmed

2.2 Adjustments are carried out according to manufacturer specifications, workplace procedures, safety and environmental requirements , and without causing damage to components or systems

2.3 Post-adjustment testing is carried out to ensure safe and correct operation of the bicycle according to workplace procedures

3. Complete work processes

3.1 Final inspection is made to ensure work meets workplace expectations and bicycle is presented ready for use

3.2 Work area is cleaned, waste and non-recyclable materials are disposed of, and recyclable material is collected and stored

3.3 Tools and equipment are checked, reported if faulty, and stored according to workplace procedures

3.4 Workplace documentation is processed according to workplace procedures

Foundation Skills

This section describes those language, literacy, numeracy and employment skills that are essential to performance and are not explicit in the performance criteria.

New unit of competency.

Performance Evidence

Before competency can be determined, individuals must demonstrate they can perform the following according to the standard defined in this unit s elements, performance criteria, range of conditions and foundation skills:

  • adjust the following components on three different bicycles:
  • brakes
  • suspension
  • chain tension
  • seat
  • handlebars and steering
  • gears.

Knowledge Evidence

Individuals must be able to demonstrate knowledge of:

  • work health and safety (WHS) and occupational health and safety (OHS) requirements relating to adjusting bicycles, including procedures for manually handling bicycles
  • environmental requirements, including procedures for trapping, storing and disposing of waste grease and oils
  • key bicycle terminology
  • techniques and procedures for adjusting bicycles, including:
  • bicycle measuring techniques
  • bicycle and adjustment procedures for components specified in the performance evidence
  • bicycle post-adjustment inspection and testing procedures
  • types and use of specialist tools and equipment to adjust bicycles
  • assembly procedures for bicycles and components.

Assessment Conditions

Assessors must satisfy NVR/AQTF assessor requirements.

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

Assessment must include direct observation of tasks.

Where assessment of competency includes third-party evidence, individuals must provide evidence that links them to the bicycles that they have adjusted, e.g. repair orders.

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

The following resources must be made available:

  • bicycle workplace or simulated workplace
  • workplace instructions
  • bicycle manufacturer specifications
  • three different bicycles with components requiring adjustments
  • tools and equipment appropriate for adjusting bicycles.
