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:
  • isolating and stabilising heavy vehicles or machines
  • lifting and supporting heavy vehicle compression ignition engines
  • operating compression ignition engines.

Environmental requirements  must include:

  • procedures for trapping, storing and disposing of oil and fluid released from compression ignition engines.

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 heavy vehicle compression ignition engines 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 engine specifications
  • two different heavy vehicle compression ignition engines with faults
  • diagnostic equipment for heavy vehicle compression ignition engines
  • tools, equipment and materials appropriate for repairing and adjusting heavy vehicle compression ignition engines.
