Release 1 

New unit of competency.

Application

This unit describes the performance outcomes required to match vehicle or component multi-layer and clear over base paint colours using original equipment manufacturer (OEM) paint codes. It involves preparing for the task, selecting and using specialist tools and equipment, identifying paint codes, preparing colour matching test cards, mixing and spraying paint and conducting a visual colour match, and completing workplace processes and documentation.

It applies to those working in the automotive paint refinishing repair industry.

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 colour match multi-layer and clear over base two-pack paints

3.4 Paint is remixed for further matching prior to application if first mix does not match original paint

4. Complete work processes

4.1 Final inspection is made to ensure work meets workplace expectations and matched paint 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

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 task.

Where assessment of competency includes third-party evidence, individuals must provide evidence that links them to the colour matching of multi-layer and clear over base paints they have undertaken with vehicles and components, e.g. work 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
  • OEM paint codes and formulas
  • TDS and SDS for paint materials
  • PPE required to colour match multi-layer and clear over base two-pack paints
  • paint and materials to colour match multi-layer and clear over base colours
  • colour test cards
  • five different vehicle panels requiring painting and colour matching
  • tools, equipment and materials appropriate for colour matching multi-layer and clear over base two-pack paints on vehicles and components.
