Release 1 

New unit of competency.

Application

This unit describes the performance outcomes required to diagnose and repair faults in the instruments and warning systems of vehicles, vessels or machinery. It 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 an automotive service and repair industry. The instruments and warning 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.

Elements and Performance Criteria

Elements 

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance Criteria 

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element. Where bold and italicised text is used, further information is detailed in the range of conditions section. 

1. Prepare to diagnose and repair instruments and warning system

1.1 Job requirements are determined from workplace instructions

1.2 Diagnostic information is sourced and interpreted

1.3 Diagnostic options are analysed and those most appropriate to the circumstances are selected

1.4 Hazards associated with the work are identified and risks are managed

1.5 Diagnostic tools and equipment are selected and checked for serviceability

2. Diagnose instruments and warning system

2.1 Diagnostic tests are performed according to workplace procedures and safety requirements  without causing damage to components or systems

2.2 Faults are identified from diagnostic test results and causes of faults are determined

2.3 Diagnosis findings and recommendations for necessary repairs or adjustments are reported according to workplace procedures

3. Repair instruments and warning system

3.1 Repair information is sourced and interpreted

3.2 Repair options are analysed and those most appropriate to the circumstances are selected

3.2 Repair tools, equipment and materials are selected and checked according to manufacturer specifications and workplace procedures

3.4 Repairs and component replacements and adjustments are carried out according to manufacturer specifications, workplace procedures and safety requirements, and without causing damage to components or systems

3.5 Post-repair testing is carried out according to workplace procedures to confirm fault rectification, and any further problems detected as having been introduced during the repair process are rectified

4. Compete work processes

4.1 Final inspection is made to ensure work is to workplace expectations and vehicle, vessel or machinery is presented ready for use

4.2 Work area is cleaned, waste and non-recyclable materials are disposed of, and recyclable material is collected

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 

Learning skills to:

  • identify and locate various sources of information efficiently.

Reading skills to:

  • interpret text, symbols and wiring diagrams in diagnostic and repair information from manufacturer specifications and workplace instructions and procedures.

Writing skills to:

  • legibly and accurately fill out workplace documentation when reporting diagnostic findings, making repair recommendations, and recording parts and material used.

Oral communication skills to:

  • clarify instructions
  • report diagnostic findings and make repair recommendations.

Numeracy skills to:

  • match instruments and warning system components and part identification numbers to workplace instructions, vehicle and component part lists, and manufacturer specifications
  • interpret electrical measurements and readings
  • measure voltage, current and resistance and use basic mathematical operations, including addition and subtraction, to calculate deviations from manufacturer specifications.

Planning and organising skills to:

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

Technology skills to:

  • use specialised equipment, including multimeters.

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 working with high current wiring systems.

Release 1 

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 and performance criteria, range of conditions and foundation skills:

  • diagnose and repair a fault in the instruments and warning systems of two different vehicles, vessels or machinery, including faults in two of the following:
  • driver instrument warning gauge assembly
  • engine monitoring warning assembly
  • vehicle warning visual alert assembly
  • vehicle warning audible alert assembly
  • remove, refit or replace an instrument panel in one vehicle, vessel or machinery.

Knowledge Evidence

Individuals must be able to demonstrate knowledge of:

  • work health and safety (WHS) and occupational health and safety (OHS) requirements relating to diagnosing and repairing instruments and warning systems, including procedures for working with high current wiring systems
  • operating principles of instruments and warning systems and associated components, including types of instruments, gauges and warning systems
  • application, purpose and operation of instruments and warning systems and components, including:
  • instrument panel construction
  • panel illumination
  • magnetic and thermal gauges
  • voltage regulators
  • mechanical gauges
  • digital electronic gauges and systems
  • warning lights and indicators
  • diagnostic testing procedures for instruments and warning systems, including:
  • accessing and interpreting scan tool system data, including:
  • diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs)
  • live data
  • freeze frame data
  • waveforms
  • using diagnostic flow charts
  • testing electrical systems, including procedures for:

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 instruments and warning 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 instrument and warning system specifications
  • two different vehicles, vessels or machinery with instrument and warning system faults
  • diagnostic equipment for instruments and warning systems, including multimeter
  • tools, equipment and materials appropriate for repairing vehicle, vessel or machinery instruments and warning systems.
