Release 1 

New unit of competency.

Application

This unit describes the performance outcomes required to inspect and service steering systems. It involves preparing for the task, inspecting the system, reporting the inspection findings, servicing and adjusting the system, and completing workplace processes and documentation.

It applies to those working in the automotive service and repair industry. The steering systems include those of agricultural machinery, heavy commercial vehicles, light vehicles, marine vessels, mobile plant machinery, motorcycles or outdoor power equipment.

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

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 inspect and service steering system

1.1 Job requirements are determined from workplace instructions

1.2 Servicing information is sourced and interpreted

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

1.4 Tools, equipment and materials are selected and checked for serviceability

2. Inspect steering system

2.1 Inspection  is carried out according to manufacturer specifications, workplace procedures, and safety and environmental requirements 

2.2 Inspection results are compared with manufacturer specifications

2.3 Inspection findings are reported according to workplace procedures, including recommendations for necessary repairs or adjustments

3. Service steering system

3.1 Service and adjustments are carried out according to manufacturer specifications, workplace procedures, and safety and environmental requirements, and without causing damage to components or systems

3.2 Post-service testing is carried out according to workplace procedures

4. Complete work processes

4.1 Final inspection is made to ensure work is to workplace expectations and vehicle or machinery is presented ready for use

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 service procedures and specifications relating to steering 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:

  • compare component wear and use basic mathematical operations, including addition and subtraction, to calculate distances, tolerances and deviations from manufacturer specifications.

Problem solving skills to:

  • refer problems outside area of responsibility to appropriate person.

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.

Inspection  must include:

  • inspecting for:
  • wear
  • oil and fluid leaks
  • physical damage.

Safety and environmental requirements  must include: 

  • work health and safety (WHS) and occupational health and safety (OHS) requirements, including procedures for isolating and stabilising vehicles or machines
  • environmental requirements, including procedures for trapping, storing and disposing of oil and fluid released from steering systems.

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 steering systems of two different vehicles or machinery, including one of the following:
  • manual steering
  • electric power assisted steering
  • hydraulic power assisted steering
  • full hydraulic steering.

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 steering systems, including procedures for isolating and stabilising vehicles or machines
  • environmental requirements, including procedures for trapping, storing and disposing of oil and fluid released from steering systems
  • identification, function and basic operation of steering systems, including:
  • manual steering
  • electric power assisted
  • hydraulic power assisted steering
  • full hydraulic steering
  • identification and function of major steering components
  • types and applications of lubricants and hydraulic fluids
  • inspection procedures for steering systems, including:
  • component wear analysis
  • oil and fluid leaks
  • physical damage
  • service and adjustment procedures for steering systems, including:
  • adjusting and replenishing oil and fluid levels as required
  • lubricating components
  • post-service testing procedures of steering systems.

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 steering 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 steering system specifications
  • two different vehicles or machinery with the steering systems specified in the performance evidence and requiring servicing
  • tools, equipment and materials appropriate for inspecting and servicing steering systems.
