Release 1 

New unit of competency.

Application

This unit describes the performance outcomes required to diagnose and repair vehicle or machinery embedded network electronic control systems. These systems include two-wire high and low speed (CAN-bus) and single wire low speed (LIN-bus) networked circuits essential to control engine powertrain, vehicle dynamic control functions and body control functions. They include vehicle infotainment and climate control systems. The unit involves preparing for the task, selecting the correct diagnostic procedure, carrying out the diagnosis and the repair, performing post-repair testing, and completing workplace processes and documentation.

It applies to those working in the automotive service and repair industry. Embedded networked systems include those in agricultural machinery, heavy commercial vehicles, light vehicles, marine 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.

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 network electronic control systems that they have worked on, 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
  • workplace instructions
  • manufacturer specifications for network electronic control systems
  • two different network electronic control circuits
  • diagnostic equipment for network electronic control circuits, including:
  • multimeter
  • scan tool
  • oscilloscope
  • tools, equipment and materials appropriate for repairing network electronic control circuits.
