Assessment must include direct observation of tasks.

Where assessment of competency includes third-party evidence, individuals must provide evidence that links them to the tools and equipment that they have used and maintained, 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
  • workplace hand and power tools and equipment as specified in the performance evidence
  • PPE required to use workplace tools and equipment
  • vehicles, components or materials that require the use of tools and equipment
