Welcome to the Mechanical Heavy Vehicle 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 Heavy Vehicle Update – 02/05/2013
Auto Skills Australia has been busy around the conducting registered training organisation forums to explain the implementation of the AUM and AUR training packages. The forums have been a great opportunity for the RTO’s to review the new training packages and ask questions.
Our next focus at ASA is to follow government policy and put the qualifications and units of competency through a streamlining process. This will be an opportunity to improve the units so they are easier to use and understand. We will also work on the performance evidence, knowledge evidence and the equipment requirements.
With the development and addition of specific mobile plant units in the AUR12 package there will need to be some reorganising of the intent and coverage of many of the heavy vehicle units. This is will be a big job and an opportunity to make some improvements and I will need to contact industry stakeholders for feedback and advice.
