Release 1 

New unit of competency.

Application

This unit describes the performance outcomes required to inspect and service vehicle drive shafts. It involves preparing for the task, inspecting the drive shaft for damage or abnormal wear, reporting the inspection findings, servicing and adjusting the drive shaft, and completing workplace processes and documentation.

It applies to those working in the automotive service and repair industry. The drive shafts include those of agricultural machinery, heavy commercial vehicles, light vehicles, mobile plant machinery 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 drive shaft

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 drive shaft

2.1 Inspection is carried out according to manufacturer specifications, workplace procedures and safety 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 drive shaft

3.1 Service and adjustments are carried out according to manufacturer specifications, workplace procedures and safety 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

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 drive shafts of two different vehicles or machinery.

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 drive shafts, including procedures for:
  • working with rotating shafts
  • handling lubricants
  • identification and function of drive shaft components, including:
  • single and multi-piece shafts
  • universal joints
  • rubber type couplings
  • slip joints
  • support bearings
  • constant velocity joints
  • types and applications of drive shaft lubricants
  • inspection procedures for drive shafts, including:
  • component wear or damage
  • lubricant leaks
  • service and adjustment procedures for drive shafts, including lubricating components as required
  • post-service testing procedures of drive shafts.

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 drive shafts 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 drive shaft specifications
  • two different vehicles or machinery with drive shafts requiring servicing
  • tools, equipment and materials appropriate for inspecting and servicing drive shafts.
