Assessment Conditions

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 exhaust systems that they have fabricated, 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
  • exhaust system fabrication material, including:
  • exhaust pipe
  • exhaust flanges
  • exhaust brackets
  • tools, equipment and materials appropriate for exhaust system fabrication, including:
  • exhaust pipe benders
  • pipe cutters
  • formers
  • welding equipment.

Assessors of this unit must satisfy the requirements for assessors in applicable vocational education and training legislation, frameworks and/or standards.
