Assessment Conditions

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 equipment or outdoor power equipment 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:

  • outdoor power equipment repair workplace or simulated workplace
  • workplace instructions
  • manufacturer engine specifications
  • three different outdoor power equipment engines specified in the performance evidence and requiring servicing
  • tools, equipment and materials appropriate for inspecting and servicing outdoor power equipment engines.

Assessors of this unit must satisfy the requirements for assessors in applicable vocational education and training legislation, frameworks and/or standards.
