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 commercial vehicle wheels and tyres that they have inspected 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 workplace or simulated workplace
  • task instructions
  • manufacturer wheel and tyre specifications
  • heavy commercial vehicle wheels and tyres as specified in the performance evidence n
  • tools, equipment and materials appropriate for inspecting heavy commercial vehicle wheels and tyres.
