This assessment will ensure that the elements, performance criteria, performance evidence and knowledge evidence required, and conditions are adhered to demonstrate competency in this unit assessment task. Read the assessment carefully before commencing. This is an open book assessment and will be conducted at the RTO address. Your Assessor will use the checklists, in this document, to ensure that all the criteria has been assessed; and will provide feedback / comment. Your assessor will observe you in demonstrating tasks under simulated workplace conditions within typical workplace time constraints in order to demonstrate your skills, knowledge and ability within an automotive workshop. Your Trainer / Assessor will inform you of the due date for this assessment task. This assessment will be required to be completed in 16 hours Your Assessor will grade as either S – Satisfactory or NS – Not Satisfactory for the assessment.

Re-Assessment Conditions
If the evidence is graded as NS – Not Satisfactory you will be required to re-submit the evidence. In this case, you will be provided with clear and constructive feedback based on the assessment decision so that they can improve your skills / knowledge prior to reassessment. Where a ‘NS – Not Satisfactory’ judgement is made, you will be given guidance on steps to take to improve your performance and provided the opportunity to resubmit evidence to demonstrate competence. The assessor will determine and discuss the reasons for NS – Not satisfactory on any of the criteria and will assess you through a different method of assessment e.g. verbal/oral questioning, problem solving exercises. You will be notified within 10 working days of undertaking an assessment of their result in achieving competency If a student does not complete the assessment, they should notify their trainer as to why they did not complete the assessment and if due to illness, a medical certificate must be produced. “This process is detailed more in the “Training and Assessment Policy and Procedure” In the above scenario, student will be given an opportunity for reassessment within 5 working days with no reassessment fee charged.
