Required Skills and Knowledge

REQUIRED SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE 

This section describes the skills and knowledge required for this unit.

Required skills 

  • collect, organise and understand information related to soldering of electrical components/wiring, work orders, plans and safety procedures
  • communicate ideas and information to enable confirmation of work requirements and specifications, coordination of work with site supervisor, other workers and customers, and the reporting of work outcomes and problems
  • plan and organise activities, including preparation and layout of worksite and obtaining of equipment and material to avoid backtracking, workflow interruptions or wastage
  • work with others and in a team by recognising dependencies and using cooperative approaches to optimise workflow and productivity
  • use mathematical ideas and techniques to correctly calculate time, assess tolerances, apply accurate measurements, calculate material requirements and establish quality checks
  • establish safe and effective work processes which anticipate and/or resolve problems and downtime, to systematically develop solutions to avoid or minimise reworking and avoid wastage
  • use workplace technology related to soldering of electrical wiring/circuits, including the use of soldering tooling, measuring equipment and communication devices and the reporting/documenting of results

Required knowledge 

A working knowledge of:

  • WHS regulations/requirement, equipment material and personal safety requirements
  • fluxes and their application
  • types of material, including solder, electrical terminals, wires and circuits
  • preparation and soldering procedures
  • guidelines regarding acceptable solder tolerance levels to be considered and manufacturer/component supplier specification
  • work organisation and planning processes

Evidence Guide

EVIDENCE GUIDE 

The evidence guide provides advice on assessment and must be read in conjunction with the performance criteria, required skills and knowledge, range statement and the Assessment Guidelines for the Training Package.

Overview of assessment 

Critical aspects for assessment and evidence required to demonstrate competency in this unit 

It is essential that competence in this unit signifies ability to transfer competence to changing circumstances and to respond to unusual circumstance in the critical aspects of:

  • observing safety procedures and requirements
  • communicating effectively with others involved in or affected by the work
  • selecting methods and techniques appropriate to the circumstances
  • completing preparatory activity in a systematic manner
  • identifying, setting up, operating and maintaining heating equipment and hand tooling
  • achieving soldering outcome and work quality relevant to application.

Context of , and specific resources for assessment 

Application of competence is to be assessed in the workplace or simulated worksite.

Assessment is to occur using standard and authorised work practices, safety requirements and environmental constraints.

Assessment is to comply with regulatory requirements, including Australian standards.

The following resources should be made available:

  • workplace location or simulated workplace
  • material relevant to soldering of electrical wiring/circuits
  • equipment, hand and power tooling appropriate to soldering of electrical wiring/circuits
  • activities covering mandatory task requirements
  • specifications and work instructions.

Method of assessment 

  • Assessment must satisfy the endorsed Assessment Guidelines of AUR12 Automotive Industry RS&R Training Package
  • Assessment methods must confirm consistency and accuracy of performance together with application of underpinning knowledge
  • Assessment must be by direct observation of tasks, with questioning on underpinning knowledge and it must also reinforce the integration of key competencies
  • Assessment may be applied under project related conditions and require evidence of process
  • Assessment must confirm a reasonable inference that competence is able to be under the particular circumstance, and is able to be transferred to other circumstances
  • It is preferable that assessment reflects a process rather than an event and occurs over a period of time to cover varying quality circumstances. Evidence of performance may be provided by customers, team leaders/members or other persons subject to agreed authentication arrangements
  • Competence in this unit may be assessed in conjunction with other functional units which together form part of the holistic work role
