Project Plan

Project Scope

This project will review units of competency, skill sets and qualifications relating to the use of new technology and safety measures across a range of mobile farm machinery operations.

Industry has identified important units of competency, skill sets and qualifications that need to be updated or created to incorporate the use of new technology and safety measures in all farm mobile machinery operations within the agriculture sector, including riding quad bikes, tractors, seeders, two-wheel motorbikes and other specialised equipment. Knowledge about the following areas has been noted as particular importance:

  • The associated risks and safety measures relating to farm mobile machinery operations
  • The serious risks of quad bikes, and particularly the risk of rollover when driving in steep and rocky terrain.
  • The use of personal protective equipment and engineering controls that ‘design out’ the hazard.
  • The use of active riding skills on motorbikes.
  • Skills gap for operating commercial lawnmowers

Validation

Thank you to those that participated in the validation process for the final draft Certificate III in Rural Machinery Operations and units of competency, including the new unit for operating tractors with attachments.

All final drafts will shortly progress through the Finalisation stage of the project, which includes quality assurance of the documents and review and feedback from the State/Territory Training Authorities, before the final drafts will be forwarded to the Agriculture and Production Horticulture Industry Reference Committee (IRC) and the Amenity Horticulture, Landscaping, Conservation & Land Management IRC for consideration and sign off. They will then be submitted to the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) to consider and approve for publication on training.gov.au.

Validation means checking and confirming that the documents are logical and factually accurate.

The final draft qualification, skill sets and units that were available for industry validation are listed below.

 

New Unit

This new unit was available for industry validation between 10 – 22 April 2018.

This new unit was developed in response to industry feedback received during the consultation stage for the draft Certificate III in Rural Machinery Operations and related units. Feedback from industry was that there was a need for an Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) level three unit, for operating high powered tractors with attachments.

This new unit does not replace the existing unit AHCMOM202 Operate tractors. The recommendation was to keep this existing unit as it currently applies to learners, starting on less powerful tractors under direct supervision before moving onto more complex vehicles.

 

AHCMOM317 Operate tractors with attachments Download final draft unit

 

Download the draft unit that was available for consultation between 25 January – 20 February 2018. During that time, one item of feedback was recorded from a peak Union body (AWU) about the prevalence of Injuries that can occur when operators don’t adapt practices to the changing external conditions when fitting attachments. For example, wet and slippery conditions compared to dry and clear conditions.

This feedback was considered important and updates were made to the Performance Criteria, Performance Evidence and Knowledge Evidence to address concerns about injuries caused when attachments are not fitted and used safely, including the use of safe work practices at all times and consideration of external conditions.

Performance Criteria Update (changes marked in blue)

2.2 Remove and safely fit attachment according to manufacturer instructions and local conditions for use

Performance Evidence Update (changes marked in blue)

  • implemented safe working practices to minimise risks when fitting and using attachments
  • selected and safely attached, removed, tested and used a range of tractor attachments and implements according to manufacturer specifications, operating procedures and varied local weather conditions

Knowledge Evidence Update (changes marked in blue)

  • features, operational functions and procedures for safe fitting and use of attachments and implements
  • effects of various surface and difficult terrain conditions on tractor operation and use of attachments
  • common injuries, causes and implications of using unsafe practices when operating tractors and fitting attachments

Qualification & Units

The final draft Certificate III in Rural Machinery Operations and units of competency that were made available for industry validation, between 25 January 2018 – 8 February 2018, are listed below.

After final quality assurance of the drafts, they will be submitted to the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) to consider and approve for publication on training.gov.au.

Finalisation

The final draft units of competency and qualification, along with a Companion Volume Implementation Guide, have now been submitted to the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) as part of a Case for Endorsement for AHC Agriculture, Horticulture and Conservation and Land Management Training Package version 3.0. The AISC will consider the Case for Endorsement at their meeting on 14 August 2018.

The Case for Endorsement provides the AISC with a rationale for approving the final draft units and qualification. It provides information about what changes have been made to the training package including, where relevant, information on new or updated units, skill sets and qualifications. It will also outline who has been consulted and provided feedback throughout the project, why the changes were made, and what the implications of the changes are. Once endorsed, the AISC will issue a communique. The units and qualification will then be published on training.gov.au and available for use by registered training organisations (RTOs). Note that this Case for Endorsement also includes units, skill sets and qualifications that have been developed as part of the Ag Chemical Handling Project, Apiculture (Bees) Project and the Pest Management Project. 

The Companion Volume Implementation Guide contains key information to help registered training organisations (RTOs) implement the units, skill sets and qualifications, including the key work and training requirements in the industry; regulation and licensing implications for implementation; pathways advice; industry sectors and occupational outcomes of qualification; and advice on workplace health and safety implications. 

Please find below copies of the final draft documents that were submitted to the AISC.
