Description

This qualification covers the skills and knowledge required to facilitate the performance of, and to perform, high level manufacturing, service and repair tasks required for recreational vehicles.

Job roles /employment outcomes 

The Certificate IV in Recreational Vehicles has been developed as a post-trade level qualification for use in MSA07 Manufacturing Training Package. This qualification has been developed in response to an industry request. People with this qualification would be expected to lead work teams and provide supervision of people undertaking the manufacture, service and repair of recreational vehicles, including:

  • motor homes
  • caravans
  • camper trailers
  • slide-ons
  • fifth wheelers

to meet Australian requirements, such as road worthiness and the Australian Design Rule (ADR). They will provide technical leadership as well as undertake some tasks themselves.

They may work in a service and repair facility or a manufacturer's factory. Work may include building a new recreational vehicle, repairs for an insurance claim or other repairs, modifying an existing recreational vehicle or undertaking routine servicing.

Application 

The sector typically manufactures, services and repairs recreational vehicles as required. This may apply to the recreational vehicle body, fittings and running gear. Repairs may be in response to a road (or other) accident, hail damage, vehicle modification or routine servicing. They may also specify and access outside specialist services, for example, for spray painting or licence requirements.

Recreational vehicles may be made from a frame (timber, aluminium or steel) and skin (aluminium or fibre composite) or a manufactured wall panel or some other technology. They are typically mounted on a steel chassis which may be manufactured by the recreational vehicle manufacturer or bought. Fittings are typically timber/particle board but may be any other suitable material.

People with this qualification may be expected to lead and also undertake one or more of:

  • manufacture of a recreational vehicle
  • insurance repairs
  • other repairs
  • work under warranty
  • modifications/refits to the recreational vehicle
  • routine servicing
  • preparation of a recreational vehicle for sale/resale.

This work will generally be undertaken in a workshop environment or factory.

Training programs for this qualification are suitable to be undertaken as part of a formal training contract with an employer under an Australian Traineeship or Apprenticeship arrangement.

Pathways into the qualification 

This qualification may be accessed by direct entry.

The units of competency contained within this qualification are common with other qualifications and credit should be granted towards this qualification where competency has already been achieved.

Credit should also be granted towards this qualification where competency has been achieved in units of competency contained within relevant skill sets.

The units of competency in this qualification reflect competencies which are practiced within the industry and recognition of prior learning (RPL) should be granted where there is sufficient evidence of competency from work-based experience.

Pathways from the qualification 

Further qualification pathways from this qualification include MSA50510 Diploma of Recreational Vehicles.

Additional qualification advice 

MSA41108 Certificate IV in Competitive Manufacturing is available for team leaders or others who need a more generalist qualification covering the application of good manufacturing practice and lean principles.

Licensing considerations 

Units of competency in this qualification provide the underpinning knowledge and skills for various required licenses. Local regulations should be checked for details.
