Application

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to diagnose and repair instruments and warning systems. The systems used vary based on the work context. The unit involves preparing for the task, sourcing a diagnostic testing strategy, diagnosing the cause of the fault, carrying out the repair, performing post-repair testing, and completing workplace processes and documentation.

The unit applies to those who work in the automotive service and repair industry. The instruments and warning systems include those in agricultural machinery, heavy commercial vehicles, light vehicles, marine vessels, motorcycles, mobile plant machinery or outdoor power equipment.

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

Assessment Conditions

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.

Assessors of this unit must satisfy the requirements for assessors in applicable vocational education and training legislation, frameworks and/or standards.
