Qualification -
Unit of Competency AURB318207B - Design and build bicycle wheels
Description This unit of competency describes the skills and knowledge required to design and safely build bicycle wheels with different hub, spoke and rim configurations.It requires the ability to understand specifications and use tools and equipment to inspect, repair and test bicycle wheels.No licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
Employability Skills This unit contains employability skills.
Learning Outcomes and Application This unit applies to individuals who undertake the design and building of bicycle wheels in a bicycle retail, service and repair environment.The unit requires building of a range of bicycle wheels with different hub, spoke and rim configurations. Build methods include assembly and manual adjustment of wheel components.Work requires individuals to demonstrate some judgement and problem-solving skills in managing own work activities and contributing to a productive team environment.
Duration and Setting X weeks, nominally xx hours, delivered in a classroom/online/blended learning setting.

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, range statement and the Assessment Guidelines for the Training Package.

Overview of assessment

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

Assessors must be satisfied that the candidate can competently and consistently:

observe safety procedures and requirements

communicate effectively with others involved in or affected by the work

select methods and techniques appropriate to the circumstances

complete preparatory activity in a systematic manner

design and build a range of bicycle wheels to specification

complete workplace records.

Context of, and specific resources for assessment

The application of competency is to be assessed in the workplace or a simulated environment that reflects as far as possible the actual working environment.

Assessment is to occur using standard and authorised work practices, safety requirements and environmental constraints.

Assessment is to comply with relevant regulatory requirements, including specified Australian standards.

Where applicable, reasonable adjustment must be made to work environments and training situations to accommodate ethnicity, age, gender, demographics and disability.

The following resources should be made available:

a range of bicycle wheels and components

equipment, hand and power tools appropriate to building wheels

technical specifications and standards

workplace documentation.

Method of assessment

Assessment must satisfy the endorsed Assessment Guidelines of this Training Package.

Assessment methods must confirm consistency and accuracy of performance (over time and in a range of workplace relevant contexts) together with application of Required Skills and Knowledge.

Assessment methods must be by direct observation of tasks and include questioning on Required Skills and 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.

Competence in this unit may be assessed in conjunction with other functional units which together form part of the holistic work role.

Guidance information for assessment

Assessment processes and techniques must be culturally sensitive and appropriate to the language and literacy capacity of the candidate and the work being performed.


Submission Requirements

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.

Required skills

Required skills include:

technical skills to the level required to safely use tooling and equipment to design and build a range of bicycle wheels, perform tests and make adjustments

literacy skills to the level required to understand information related to work orders, including common industry terminology, plans and safety procedures, to prepare reports and interpret technical information and specifications related to various types of bicycle wheels, their components and spoke patterns

numeracy skills to the level required to correctly calculate time, assess tolerances, apply accurate measurements, calculate material requirements and establish quality checks

problem-solving skills to the level required to establish diagnostic processes which identify potential faults in wheel design, and identify technical and procedural problems to avoid planning and scheduling problems, and time and material wastage

team skills to the level required to work effectively and cooperatively with others to optimise workflow and productivity
