Case for Change
The objective of this project is to assess the need for a new unit of competency to equip marine technicians to work safely with marine fuel systems.
The Case for Change for this project was established as a result of initial research and consultation undertaken by the previous automotive Industry Skills Council, Auto Skills Australia. The project was outlined in the Marine Sector Industry Reference Committee Four Year Work Plan and was submitted in a Case for Change – previously referred to as a Business Case – to the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) in December 2016.
On behalf of the Automotive Allied IRC, PwC’s Skills for Australia carried out industry consultations for this project from October to December 2017.
Consultation focused on assessing the following points:
- The skills required to engage with marine fuel systems;
- Safety risks and hazards associated with marine fuel systems; and
- The need for marine specific Units of Competency in this area.
Following the Automotive Allied IRC’s review of our key findings from consultation and the recommendations we proposed for changes to training products, we developed a draft training product to address the skills gap.
The final round of public consultation has now closed.
The next step will be to develop a Case for Endorsement for changes to the Automotive Retail, Service and Repair Training Package, which is to be provided to the Automotive Allied IRC for approval and submission to the AISC in April 2018.

Training Product Development
This review of a unit for working safely with marine fuel systems includes the following training products:
The consultation period for feedback on draft training products has now closed.
Once feedback is collated this training product will be prepared for independent validation by the Quality Assurance Panel. The next step will then be to develop a Case for Endorsement for changes to the Automotive Retail, Service and Repair Training Package, which is to be provided to the Allied IRC for approval and submitted to the AISC in April 2018.

The Case for Endorsement for Automotive Marine Fuel Systems was approved by the AISC in April 2018.
Resulting changes to the Automotive Training Package can be viewed in the Case for Endorsement document below.
These changes are now reflected on the Training.gov.au website.
