Pathways Information

Qualification Pathways 

Pathways into the qualification 

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

Pathways from the qualification 

After achieving the ICT20510 Certificate II in Telecommunications Rigging Installation, candidates may undertake the ICT30510 Certificate III in Telecommunications Rigging Installation, a qualification for those seeking to develop more specialised technical skills and knowledge, or a range of other Certificate III qualifications.

Licensing/Regulatory Information

Licensing , legislative , regulatory or certification considerations 

Cabling :

The four unit set ICTCBL2005A, ICTCBL2006A, ICTCBL2008A and ICTCMP2022A that meets the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) requirements for Cabling Provider Rules (CPR) restricted registration, is generally used as a part of a more specialised customer cabling qualification. This set is regarded as more suitable for new entrants where limited or no industry experience has been obtained and forms the major part of specialised qualifications such as ICT20310 Certificate II in Telecommunications Cabling.

All training programs must be undertaken with reference to the regulatory regime of the prevailing statutory authority for cabling (currently ACMA) and rigging.

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 

Some cabling and installation work 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 Services Integrated Framework Training Package fulfils this requirement.
