Case for Change
The key objectives of this project are to determine the required modifications to the current Units of Competency for inspecting, monitoring and reporting the condition of off-the-road tyres, to more accurately reflect job roles and industry needs.
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 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 Heavy Vehicle Industry Reference Committee (IRC), PwC’s Skills for Australia carried out industry consultations for this project from August to November 2017. Consultation focused on assessing the following points:
- Occupations that undertake pre-use inspections of vehicles, including inspecting, monitoring and reporting on the condition of OTR tyres;
- Skills required to engage with OTR tyres;
- Safety issues associated with OTR tyres and relationship to training; and
- Suitability of the current OTR tyre units to prepare learners to engage with OTR tyres in the workplace.
Another round of public consultation was opened in June 2018 to determine whether OTR tyre fitting units of competency in the Resources and Infrastructure Industry (RII) and AUR training packages should be amalgamated.
Training Product Development
This project to review the Off-the-Road Tyres Units of Competency includes the following training products:
The initial public consultation for feedback on these draft training products has closed.
Another round of public consultation was open during June 2018 after stakeholders identified duplication in the training products for OTR tyres between the AUR and RII training packages.
It included the following draft training products:
Consultation on these draft training products has now closed.
A Case for Endorsement has now been submitted to the AISC, for consideration in October 2018.
