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 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.

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