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 tyres that they have removed, repaired and refitted, 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 detailing job requirements
  • manufacturer tyre and rim specifications and fitting instructions
  • PPE required to remove, repair and refit bicycle tyres
  • bicycle wheels, tyres and tubes for the types of bicycles specified in the performance evidence
  • tools and equipment appropriate for removing, repairing, refitting and inflating bicycle tyres.
