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

4.3 Tools and equipment are checked and stored according to workplace procedures

4.4 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.

Skills 

Description 

Learning skills to:

  • locate appropriate sources of information efficiently.

Reading skills to:

  • interpret information from manufacturer and workshop literature when seeking inspection and service procedures and specifications relating to air braking systems.

Writing skills to:

  • legibly and accurately fill out workplace documentation when reporting inspection findings, making recommendations, and recording parts and material used.

Oral communication skills to:

  • clarify instructions
  • report inspection findings and make repair recommendations.

Numeracy skills to:

  • interpret measuring equipment scales.

Technology skills to:

  • use precision measuring equipment, such as vernier calipers.

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:
  • managing and controlling brake dust
  • working with stored energy
  • environmental requirements, including procedures for trapping, storing and disposing of brake dust released from air braking systems.

Components  must include:

  • air compressor, filters, air drier, receivers and tanks
  • drive belts
  • spring brake chambers, hoses and adjusters
  • discs, pads, drums and linings
  • brake valves
  • brake lights
  • trailer brake valves.

Post-service testing  must include:

  • static and dynamic testing of braking system.

Comment 

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:

  • inspect and service the air braking systems of two different vehicles or machinery, including:
  • one air disc braking system
  • one air drum braking 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 inspecting and servicing air braking systems, including procedures for:
  • managing and controlling brake dust
  • working with stored energy
  • environmental requirements, including procedures for trapping, storing and disposing of brake dust released from air braking systems
  • identification and function of major air braking components, including:
  • air compressor, filters, air drier, receivers and tanks
  • drive belts
  • spring brake chambers, hoses and adjusters
  • discs, pads, drums and linings
  • brake valves
  • brake lights
  • trailer brake valves
  • basic operation of air braking systems, including:
  • mechanical
  • pneumatic
  • inspection procedures for air braking systems, including:
  • component wear analysis
  • air system assessment
  • service and adjustment procedures for air braking systems, including:
  • brake adjustment
  • parking and emergency brake adjustment
  • post-service testing procedures for air braking systems, including static and dynamic testing.

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 air braking systems 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 air braking system specifications
  • two different vehicles or machinery with air disc and air drum braking systems requiring servicing
  • tools, equipment and materials appropriate for inspecting and servicing air braking systems.
