Elements and Performance Criteria

Elements 

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance Criteria 

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element. Where bold and italicised text is used, further information is detailed in the range of conditions section.

1. Prepare to undertake pre-repair operations

1.1 Job requirements are determined from workplace instructions

1.2 Pre-repair procedures and information are sourced and interpreted

1.3 Cleaning options  are analysed and selected

1.4 Hazards associated with the work are identified and risks are managed

1.5 Tools and equipment are selected and checked for serviceability

2. Clean and tag mechanical component prior to repair or storage

2.1 Component is cleaned according to manufacturer specifications, workplace procedures, and safety and environmental requirements , and without causing damage to component or system

2.2 Cleaning materials  and equipment are used according to manufacturer specifications and workplace procedures

2.3 Component is tagged and prepared for further repair procedures or treated with rust prevention material for storage

2.4 Used cleaning materials and waste materials are safely disposed of according to manufacturer specifications, workplace procedures, and safety and environmental requirements

3. Complete work processes

3.1 Final inspection is made to ensure work is to workplace expectations and component is presented ready for repair or storage

3.2 Work area is cleaned, waste and non-recyclable materials are disposed of, and recyclable material is collected

3.3 Tools and equipment are checked and stored according to workplace expectations

3.4 Workplace documentation is processed according to workplace procedures

Foundation Skills

This section describes those language, literacy, numeracy and employment skills that are essential to performance and are not explicit in the performance criteria.

Release 1 

New unit of competency.

Performance Evidence

Before competency can be determined, individuals must demonstrate they can perform the following according to the standards defined in this unit’s elements, performance criteria, range of conditions and foundation skills:

  • carry out mechanical pre-repair operations to three of the following vehicle components:
  • transmission
  • engine
  • steering and suspension system
  • final drive
  • wheels and hubs
  • chassis
  • hydraulic system
  • fuel system.

Knowledge Evidence

Individuals must be able to demonstrate knowledge of:

  • work health and safety (WHS) and occupational health and safety (OHS) requirements relating to carrying out mechanical pre-repair operations, including procedures for:
  • operating cleaning equipment
  • using hazardous chemicals
  • selecting and using personal protective equipment (PPE), including safety glasses, gloves and protective clothing
  • environmental requirements, including procedures for trapping, storing and disposing of cleaning agents and residue released during the cleaning process
  • procedures for identifying and operating cleaning equipment, including:
  • steam cleaning
  • high pressure washing
  • manual washing
  • sand or bead blasting
  • types, application and safe handling of cleaning agents
  • component cleaning procedures
  • component dismantling procedures
  • tagging and storage procedures for cleaned components.

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 vehicle components 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 cleaning agent specifications
  • area and equipment, including PPE, for safely cleaning vehicle components
  • vehicle components for pre-repair operations as specified in the performance evidence
  • tools, equipment and materials appropriate for carrying out mechanical pre-repair operations.
