Release 1 

New unit of competency.

Application

This unit describes the performance outcomes required to inspect, service and repair faults in track type drive and support systems. It involves preparing for the task, inspecting the system to determine the service and repair requirements, carrying out the service and repair, performing post-repair testing, and completing workplace processes and documentation.

It applies to those working in the automotive service and repair industry. The track type drive and support systems include those of agricultural machinery or mobile plant machinery.

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

Technology skills to:

  • use measuring equipment and wear gauges.

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 and environmental requirements  must include: 

  • work health and safety (WHS) and occupational health and safety (OHS) requirements, including procedures for:
  • manually handling system components
  • isolating and stabilising machines
  • releasing track chain tensioner
  • working with recoil spring stored energy
  • disassembling track chain tensioner
  • working with stored hydraulic pressure
  • environmental requirements, including procedures for:
  • trapping, storing and disposing of lubricants and fluids released from track type drive and support systems
  • waste management, machine hygiene, dust and clean-up management.

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 track type drive and support systems that they have serviced and repaired, 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 track type drive specifications
  • machinery with track type drive and support system requiring service and repair
  • track drive system inspection and measurement tools and gauges, including:
  • track chain, track link, pin, bushing and track shoe
  • undercarriage tensioner, roller, idler and drive sprocket
  • tools, equipment and materials appropriate for inspecting, servicing, repairing and adjusting track type drive and support systems.
