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 engine service procedures and specifications.

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:

  • report inspection findings and make repair recommendations.

Numeracy skills to:

  • calculate liquid volumes and service schedule intervals, using mathematical operations, including addition and subtraction.

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: 

  • pre- and post-service inspections for oil and fluid leaks
  • analysing abnormal engine noises
  • inspecting ancillary components.

Safety requirements  must include:

  • work health and safety (WHS) and occupational health and safety (OHS) requirements, including procedures for working with:
  • rotating and hot components
  • engine oils
  • high energy ignition and charging systems.

Service  must include:

  • replacing oil and oil filter.

Environmental requirements  must include:

  • procedures for trapping, storing and disposing of fluids released from engines.

Post-service testing  must include:

  • starting up and running engine to operating temperature
  • checking for leaks and abnormal noises.

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 engines of two different vehicles or machinery, including replacing the engine oil and filters.

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 engines, including procedures for working with:
  • rotating and hot components
  • engine oils
  • high energy ignition and charging systems
  • environmental requirements, including procedures for trapping, storing and disposing of fluids released from engines
  • identification and function of major engine components, including:
  • cylinder block and head
  • piston and connecting rod
  • crankshaft
  • valve train
  • manifolds
  • ports and reed valve
  • identification and function of engine systems, including:
  • lubrication
  • cooling system
  • fuel system
  • air system
  • basic operation of spark ignition engines and compression ignition engines, including:

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 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:

  • automotive repair workplace or simulated workplace
  • workplace instructions
  • manufacturer engine specifications
  • two different vehicles or machinery with engines requiring servicing
  • tools, equipment and materials appropriate for inspecting and servicing engines.
