Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 

Comment 

Release 1 

New unit of competency.

Application

This unit describes the performance outcomes required to depower and reinitialise battery electric vehicles (BEVs). It involves ensuring the vehicle high voltage (HV) rechargeable energy storage system (RESS) is isolated before commencing any service or repair work. It also involves calibrating vehicle systems that may need resetting once the energy storage system is reinitialised. Importance is placed in the unit on applying RESS and separated extra low voltage (SELV) electrical safety procedures.

It applies to those working in the automotive service and repair industry.

No licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.

4.3 Tools and equipment are checked and stored and any faulty electrical equipment is identified, tagged and isolated according to workplace procedures

4.4 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.

Skills 

Description

Oral communication skills to:

  • listen to workplace instructions and ask questions to clarify job requirements
  • participate in verbal exchanges when depowering and reinitialising BEVs.

Numeracy skills to:

  • match electrical components and part identification numbers to workplace instructions, vehicle and component part lists, and manufacturer specifications
  • interpret vehicle electrical measurements and readings on digital and analogue gauges
  • interpret measurements of residual voltage and high voltages relating to BEVs.

Planning and organising skills to:

  • plan own work requirements and prioritise actions to achieve required outcomes and ensure tasks are completed within workplace timeframes.

Problem solving skills to:

  • identify faults in reinitialising process that need to be reported.

Technology skills to:

  • use specialised tools.

Range of Conditions

This section specifies work environments and conditions that may affect performance. Essential operating conditions that may be present (depending on the work situation, needs of the candidate, accessibility of the item, and local industry and regional contexts) are included. Bold italicised wording, if used in the performance criteria, is detailed below.

Safety requirements  must include:

  • work health and safety (WHS) and occupational health and safety (OHS) requirements, including procedures for:
  • identifying hazards and controlling risks associated with:
  • working with high voltages on BEV electrical systems
  • wearing jewellery while working around high electrical currents
  • determining appropriate procedures for minimising risk associated with hazards, including applying electrical safety precautions when:
  • using personal protective equipment (PPE), including electrical safety gloves with 1000 volt rating and Australian standards rated HV insulating mat
  • identifying and using firefighting equipment as appropriate
  • using the ‘one hand’ rule
  • following live system warning tags and signs
  • depowering vehicle
  • isolating HV RESS electrical supply
  • stabilising vehicle electrical system.

Tools and equipment  must include:

  • those specified in the specific vehicle service maintenance procedures, including:
  • digital multimeter with Cat III 1000 volt rating
  • insulation tester
  • residual voltage tester, if specified in original equipment manufacturer (OEM) test requirements
  • scan tool.

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 the unit’s elements, performance criteria, range of conditions and foundation skills:

  • safely depower the rechargeable energy storage system (RESS) and separated extra low voltage (SELV) system of two different battery electric vehicles (BEVs), and stabilise the vehicles ensuring that no residual high voltage (HV) is measured
  • safely reinitialise each BEV’s RESS and SELV system and confirm correct vehicle operation.

Knowledge Evidence

Individuals must be able to demonstrate knowledge of:

  • work health and safety (WHS) and occupational health and safety (OHS) requirements relating to depowering and reinitialising BEVs, including procedures for:
  • identifying hazards and controlling risks associated with:
  • working with high voltages on BEV electrical systems
  • wearing jewellery while working around high electrical currents
  • determining appropriate procedures for minimising risk associated with hazards, including applying electrical safety precautions when:

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 BEVs that they have depowered and reinitialised 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:

  • automotive repair workplace or simulated workplace
  • PPE and safety equipment, including electrical safety gloves with 1000 volt rating and Australian standards rated HV insulating mat
  • manufacturer specifications and service procedures for the BEVs being depowered and reinitialised
  • AS 5732 Electric vehicle operations - Maintenance and repair
  • two different BEVs as specified in the performance evidence
  • electrical test equipment, including:
  • digital multimeter with Cat III 1000 volt rating
  • insulation tester
  • residual voltage tester, if specified in original equipment manufacturer (OEM) test requirements
  • scan tool
