Release 1 

New unit of competency.

Application

This unit describes the performance outcomes required to test an existing wiring harness and loom, remove, fabricate and fit the new wiring harness and loom, and then test its operation. It involves preparing for the task, performing the work, and completing workplace processes and documentation.

It applies to those working in the automotive service and repair industry. The wiring harnesses and looms include those in agricultural machinery, heavy commercial vehicles, light vehicles, vessels, mobile plant machinery, motorcycles or outdoor power equipment.

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