Release 1 

New unit of competency.

Application

This unit describes the performance outcomes required to remove and refit heavy vehicle tyres and tubes from wheels and rims. It involves identifying and confirming work requirements, preparing for the work; inspecting, repairing and refitting the heavy vehicle tyres and tubes, and completing workplace processes and documentation.

It applies to those working in the automotive service and repair industry. The tyres and tubes include those of agricultural machinery, forklifts, heavy commercial vehicles or mobile plant machinery. This unit does not apply to off-the-road (OTR) tyres of mobile plant machinery.

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

Competency Field

Mechanical - Heavy Vehicle

Unit Sector

Technical - Wheels and Tyres

Elements and Performance Criteria

Elements 

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance Criteria

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 tyres and tubes 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 tyre and tube repair procedures and specifications
  • heavy vehicle tyres, tubes, wheel and rim assemblies specified in the performance evidence
  • tools, equipment and materials appropriate for removing, inspecting, repairing and refitting heavy vehicle tyres and tubes, including:
  • tyre and tube repair tools and equipment
