Welcome to the Mechanical & Specialisation Industry Advisory Committee page. This page forms one of several web pages dedicated to different parts of the ASA industry advisory structure.
This page is designed to provide advice to the committee members and stakeholders more broadly on the work of the committee and the anticipated work-plan for the future. It also provides access to the Training Package Continuous Improvement Plans, which are a central element in the work of ASA and its committees.
The committee and ASA welcome feedback from stakeholders and welcome inputs into the development of the national training system and national workforce development initiatives.
Feedback from members of industry to join the Sector Advisory Committees has been very positive and a full meeting of all Committee members is planned for August/September 2013. Applications for Committee positions are welcome from interested industry stakeholders. Your feedback and continued interest in joining the Committees is welcomed and applications for a position on the committee are welcomed from interested industry stakeholders.
Mechanical & Specialisation update – April 2013
As part of ASA’s engagement and consultation process, we held RTO forums around the country. Training Providers will able to ask questions regarding the implementation of the AUR12 Training Package and to give us valuable feedback that will be useful as we move deeper into the process of streamlining the Training Package.
Our next work involves examining each unit of competency and re-writing them to conform with the government policy that is Streamlining. We are taking the opportunity to ensure that all sections of the unit are looked at carefully and asking stakeholders to give feedback as to what must be in the unit.
The units that sit in the qualifications that make up the Mechanical and Specialisation sector are around Light Vehicle, Motorcycles and the various specialisations that sit within these areas, such as Engine Reconditioning, Underbody, Drivetrain, Tyres and Alternative Fuels. All stakeholders are encouraged to give their opinion of the work as we put it up on our website for feedback so we can ensure the units are fit for purpose and meet the needs of industry.
All units will be placed on the website for feedback, but those within AUR30612 (Certificate III in Light Vehicle Mechanical Technology) will be those up for feedback first as (1) the qualification is probably the most used in the Training Package and (2) a lot of the core units in this qualification are found in other qualifications across the Training Package and need wide consultation within the industry.
When the units are ready for review they will be placed on the following link and an email sent out to all on our database. Please send in your feedback so changes can be made and those changes reviewed.
This is an opportunity to make a lot of improvement to the units and we encourage all interested parties to make their contribution.
