Evidence Required

List the assessment methods to be used and the context and resources required for assessment. Copy and paste the relevant sections from the evidence guide below and then re-write these in plain English.

The Evidence Guide provides advice on assessment and must be read in conjunction with the Performance Criteria, Required Skills and Knowledge, the Range Statement and the Assessment Guidelines for this Training Package.

Overview of assessment

Critical aspects for assessment and evidence required to demonstrate competency in this unit

Evidence of the following is essential:

compliance with relevant legislative, regulations, standards, codes of practice and establish safe practices and organisation policies and procedures for managing personal work priorities

maintaining a working knowledge of current work systems and practices

working and communicating effectively and positively with others involved in the work

applying, within authority, the requirements of the job or work role in relation to:

achieving production goals

achieving work quality goals

responding positively to changing work requirements

contributing effectively to cost reduction initiatives

effectively applying problem solving techniques

modify activities to cater for variations in organisation context and environment

complete minor modifications/repairs to circuit wiring and components

test and identify faults in electrical circuits and systems

employ safe working practices

employ vehicle electronic systems and components protection procedures

complete organisation documentation - written / electronic

Context of and specific resources for assessment

assessment of the competency should take place in a safe working environment in a passenger motor vehicle manufacturing plant or simulated environment using tools/equipment/machinery required for the production process without undue disruption to the production process

assessment is to occur under standard and authorised work practices, safety requirements and environmental constraints.

Method of assessment

A range of assessment methods should be used to assess practical skills and knowledge. The following examples are appropriate for this unit:

assessment methods must confirm consistency and accuracy of performance (over time and in a range of organisation relevant contexts) together with application of underpinning knowledge

assessment methods must be by direct observation of tasks and include questioning on underpinning knowledge to ensure its correct interpretation and application

assessment may be applied under project related conditions (real or simulated) and require evidence of process

assessment must confirm a reasonable inference that competency is able not only to be satisfied under the particular circumstance, but is able to be transferred to other circumstances.


Submission Requirements

List each assessment task's title, type (eg project, observation/demonstration, essay, assignment, checklist) and due date here

(add new lines for each of the assessment tasks)


Assessment Tasks

Copy and paste from the following data to produce each assessment task. Write these in plain English and spell out how, when and where the task is to be carried out, under what conditions, and what resources are needed. Include guidelines about how well the candidate has to perform a task for it to be judged satisfactory.

This section describes the essential skills and knowledge and their level, required for this unit.

Required skills

speak clearly and directly in order to inform team members of completed modifications/repairs

apply teamwork to a range of situations

solve problems particularly in teams in order to meet performance indicators

show initiative in adapting to changing work conditions or contexts particularly when working across a variety of work areas

access, interpret and apply information on relevant organisation policies, procedures and instructions, particularly to ensure appropriate tools and techniques are used to perform repairs, replacements and adjustments

manage time when planning, preparing and organising work priorities

take responsibility for organising own work priorities.

Required knowledge

relevant Occupational Health and Safety and Environmental regulations and organisation policies and procedures needed to carry out work in a manner which ensures the safety of people, equipment and the environment.

technical work documentation covering procedures, specifications, schedules and work plans or equivalent

quality system documentation covering instructions, procedures, performance indicators and review processes or equivalent

cost minimisation/waste avoidance policies, procedures and practices

environmental protection requirements relating to the disposal of waste material

established communication channels and protocols

problem identification and resolution techniques

electrical principles and circuit wiring characteristics

circuit repair procedures

electrical measuring and testing procedures

vehicle safety requirements

procedures to avoid damage to ECUs

fault finding using aural, visual and functional assessments for damage, corrosion, wear and electrical defects

The range statement relates to the unit of competency as a whole. It allows for different work environments and situations that may affect performance. Bold italicised wording in the Performance Criteria is detailed below. Add any essential operating conditions that may be present with training and assessment depending on the work situation, needs of the candidate, accessibility of the item, and local industry and regional contexts.

OHS requirements may include:

Legislation and regulations, organisational safety policies and procedures and may include: the use of personal protective equipment and clothing, rescue services, fire fighting organisation and equipment, first aid equipment, hazard and risk control and elimination, systems covering the use of hazardous materials and substances and manual handling procedures including lifting and carrying.

Organisationrequirements may include:

access and equity principles and practices

environmental management (waste disposal, recycling and re-use guidelines)

emergency and evacuation procedures

equipment use procedures

ethical standards

legal obligations

maintenance and storage procedures

organisational and site guidelines

policies and procedures relating to own role and responsibility

procedural manuals

quality assurance guidelines

quality and continuous improvement processes and standards

recording and reporting guidelines.

Tools and materials may include:

hand tools, test lamps, multimeters

power/air tools, special tools for removal/replacement, special testing equipment

soldering equipment and cable terminations

electrical components, wiring, clips, globes, fuses, tapes.

Copy and paste from the following performance criteria to create an observation checklist for each task. When you have finished writing your assessment tool every one of these must have been addressed, preferably several times in a variety of contexts. To ensure this occurs download the assessment matrix for the unit; enter each assessment task as a column header and place check marks against each performance criteria that task addresses.
