Description

Descriptor 

This qualification reflects the role of a skilled operator in the television or radio broadcasting industries who applies a broad range of competencies in a varied work context, using some discretion and judgement and relevant theoretical knowledge. They may provide technical advice and support to a team.

Job roles 

  • Assistant broadcast technologist
  • Broadcast installer
  • Broadcast technical officer.

Pathways Information

Qualification pathways 

Pathways into the qualification 

Candidates may enter the qualification with limited or no vocational experience and without a relevant lower-level qualification.

Licensing/Regulatory Information

Licensing , legislative , regulatory and certification considerations 

Electrical work 

In some states and territories of Australia, a restricted electrical licence is required. Restricted electrical licences allow a person to carry out electrical work incidental to a trade. Incidental work may include fault finding on equipment or changing like for like equipment by disconnecting and reconnecting the fixed wiring. It does not include any other changes to the fixed wiring.

First aid 

The broadcast industry recommends completion of the St John Ambulance Senior First Aid course.

Open cabling registration 

The core units ICTTC136C and ICTTC137C fulfil requirements for Open Cabling Registration by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA).

National Standard for Licensing Persons Performing High Risk Work 

The National Standard for Licensing Persons Performing High Risk Work applies to persons performing dogging and rigging work. Completion of the following units is required for certification at either basic, intermediate or advanced levels.

CPCCLDG3001A Licence to perform dogging

CPCCLRG3001A Licence to perform rigging basic level

CPCCLRG3002A Licence to perform rigging intermediate level

CPCCLRG4001A Licence to perform rigging advanced level.

National Code of Practice for Induction for Construction Work 

Sets and staging for some performances or events may fall within the definition of construction work. If so, people entering the construction site are required to complete the general induction training program specified by the National Code of Practice for Induction Training for Construction Work (Australian Safety Compensation Council, May 2007).

Achievement of the unit 'CPCCOHS1001A Work safely in the construction industry' from the CPC08 Construction and Plumbing Integrated Framework Training Package fulfils this requirement.

Information on occupational licensing and its intersection with vocational education and training can be found in Licensing Line News at www .licensinglinenews .com .
