Release 1 

New unit of competency.

Application

This unit describes the performance outcomes required to diagnose and repair faults in the hydraulic braking systems of light vehicles. It involves preparing for the task, selecting the correct diagnostic procedure, carrying out the diagnosis and the repair, performing post-repair testing, and completing workplace processes and documentation.

It applies to those working in the automotive service and repair industry. The hydraulic braking systems include those in light vehicles, light commercial vehicles or outdoor power equipment. This unit does not apply to agricultural machinery, heavy commercial vehicles, mobile plant machinery or motorcycles.

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

Technology skills to:

  • use hydraulic braking system measuring equipment, such as vernier calipers, micrometers and brake drum micrometers.

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:
  • lifting and supporting light vehicles
  • handling and controlling brake dust and brake fluids
  • environmental requirements, including procedures for trapping, storing and disposing of brake dust and brake fluid released from hydraulic braking systems.
