Evidence Guide

EVIDENCE GUIDE 

The evidence guide provides advice on assessment and must be read in conjunction with the performance criteria, required skills and knowledge, range statement and the Assessment Guidelines for the Training Package.

Overview of assessment 

Critical aspects for assessment and evidence required to demonstrate competency in this unit 

It is essential that competence is fully observed and there is ability to transfer competence to changing circumstances and to respond to unusual situations in the critical aspect of:

  • test of electrical componentry in motor vehicles.

Context of , and specific resources for assessment 

Underpinning knowledge and skills may be assessed on or off the job.

Assessment of practical skills must take place after a period of supervised practice and repetitive experience. If workplace conditions are not available, assessment in simulated workplace conditions is acceptable.

Prescribed outcomes must be able to be achieved without direct supervision.

The following resources should be made available:

  • specific service and general workshop equipment and tooling
  • enterprise documentation
  • vehicles with a range of commonly encountered electrical components
  • vehicles fitted with air bags
  • job cards
  • multimeter.

Method of assessment 

Practical assessments:

  • gather information on technology related to testing of electrical componentry following body repair activities
  • plan working with and testing of electrical componentry following body repair activities
  • test electrical componentry following body repair activities
  • accurately complete job card, including listing of parts and consumables used and labour hours.

Guidance information for assessment
