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 service bicycle suspension system

1.1 Job requirements are determined from workplace instructions

1.2 Manufacturer specifications, workplace procedures and other relevant technical information are accessed and interpreted

1.3 Condition of bicycle suspension system  is inspected for faults and worn or damaged components using visual and physical methods and compared with manufacturer specifications

1.4 Hazards associated with the work are identified and risks are managed

1.5 Tools and equipment, including personal protective equipment (PPE), are selected and checked for serviceability

1.6 Work area is prepared and service sequence planned to avoid damage to bicycle, minimise waste and use time efficiently

2. Carry out service of suspension system

2.1 Tools and equipment are used according to workplace procedures and manufacturer specifications

2.2 Bicycle suspension system is serviced according to job requirements, manufacturer specifications, and safety and environmental requirements 

2.3 Operation of serviced suspension system is tested through its full range and adjustments are made as required

2.4 Results and quality issues are reported to authorised personnel as required

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.

  • hydraulic system.

Knowledge Evidence

Individuals must be able to demonstrate knowledge of:

  • work health and safety (WHS) and occupational health and safety (OHS) requirements relating to servicing bicycle suspension systems, including procedures for:
  • manually handling bicycles and their suspension systems
  • identifying workplace hazards
  • using personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • environmental requirements, including procedures for disposing of waste materials
  • bicycle suspension system terminology
  • types of bicycle suspension systems and application of suspension mechanical principles
  • service requirements of a bicycle suspension system
  • types and use of tools and equipment used to service bicycle suspension systems
  • techniques and processes for servicing bicycle suspension systems, including:
  • identification of bicycle suspension components, materials and specifications

  • suspension system adjustment techniques
  • suspension system testing procedures
  • servicing options, including:
  • on- and off-site servicing
  • servicing and adjusting suspension system components
  • upgrading suspension 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 bicycle suspension systems that they have serviced, e.g. service 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, including location to test bicycle suspension system
  • workplace instructions detailing job requirements
  • manufacturer specifications for suspension systems
  • PPE required to service bicycle suspension systems
  • three different bicycle suspension systems specified in the performance evidence and requiring servicing and testing
  • tools and equipment appropriate for servicing bicycle suspension systems.
