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 for work

1.1 Job requirements are determined from workplace instructions

1.2 Vehicle specifications, and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) or authorised agency’s recommended repair procedures and methods, are accessed and interpreted

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

1.4 Tools and equipment  are selected and checked for serviceability

1.5 Work area is prepared and work is planned to minimise waste and use time efficiently

2. Perform pre-repair measurements

2.1 Measuring equipment is selected, prepared and attached to the vehicle according to equipment manufacturer instructions and safety and environmental requirements 

2.2 Pre-repair three-dimensional measurements  are completed without causing damage to system or components, and extent of misalignment is identified and recorded

2.3 Results of measurements and visual and physical inspections are used to determine type of damage and misalignment repair required

3 .Repair misalignment

3.1 Misalignment is repaired using appropriate repair method 

3.2 Misalignment repair is inspected and measured and results are checked against vehicle OEM or authorised agency’s specifications and tolerances

4. Complete work processes

4.1 Final inspection is made to ensure work meets workplace expectations and manufacturer specifications, and vehicle is presented ready for use

4.2 Work area is cleaned, waste and non-recyclable materials are disposed of, and recyclable material is collected and stored

4.3 Tools and equipment are checked, reported if faulty, 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.

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 vehicle misalignments that they have repaired, 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
  • PPE required to repair vehicle body misalignment
  • OEM or authorised agency repair procedures
  • vehicle specifications
  • welding equipment
  • measuring system
  • straightening equipment
  • two misaligned vehicle body sections as specified in the performance evidence
  • tools, equipment and materials appropriate for repairing vehicle misalignment.
