Welcome to the Vehicle Manufacturing (Passenger Vehicles) 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.
Vehicle Manufacturing (Passenger Vehicles)
Update – April 2013
Starting with Vehicle manufacturing; the sector committee had their meeting on 14th of February at ASA’s Melbourne office, with representatives from the AMWU, FORD, FUTURIS, HOLDEN and TOYOTA.
The Bus, Truck Trailer manufacturing sector had their meeting on the 26th of February at IAME Brisbane office.
Both automotive manufacturing sector committee focused on the DRAFT streamlined unit to ensure that the units captures the job role for industry.
Again the committee had an in-depth look at the streamlined model with discussions around unit format, foundation skills and assessment requirements.
The addition of the foundation skills and the replacement of ‘may include’ to must include in the ‘range of conditions’ created positive discussion.
The other area of interest was the committees view on the number of times a trainee is required to successfully complete a unit tasks before competence is given.
The other area for the AUM BTT was the change to the certificate II qualification, where the committee agreed to move two units from the core to the elective bank:
- Conduct basic welding, cutting heating and gouging operations
- Mechanical cutting operations
Reason for the move was identified by Paccar Australia; however the two units can be selected form the elective bank and added to a training plan if required.
As with all sector committees they were also informed of a National RTO forum program, which was rolled out in March.
A copy the 2013 E-Scan was also tabled for the committee and copies forwarded to members.
Both committees were informed that the next meeting will be in Melbourne in early September.
