the AQF level two and level four unit limits.
The course structure is made up of 4 major groups of units of competence.
These major groups are:
GROUP 1     -   Core competency units - safety, diagnostic and
environmental units specified in the training package.
GROUP 2     -   Motorsport Inventory Units - a minimum of 27 units
must be completed. Ten of these units MUST come from sub-group
1, Motorsport Cluster units
GROUP 3     -   Units from AUR05 and other endorsed training packages.
Please note:
1) The course structure does not dictate the order in which units must be
delivered. RTOs should be flexible in the order and method in which they
deliver and group units in response to workplace needs where ever possible.
2) Contact the teaching section if a learner is seeking recognition of a
unit of comptence from another training package and conforms with the
AUR05 packaging rules.
3) To satisfy specific local industry needs, Institutes should contact the
Program Manager to have additional units of competence added to the course.
4) TAFE NSW students who may need additional support to achieve the course
outcomes should also enrol in Learner Support Course - 9999.
5) The module 6200Z Transport Work Experience has been added as enrichment
enable students access to work experience when relevant.
