Description

Descriptor 

This qualification reflects the role of an operator in the telecommunications industry who can apply a broad range of competencies in a varied work context from installation and maintenance of telecommunications equipment mounted on structures requiring rigging skills.

This role includes assessing installation requirements, planning and performing installations, testing installed equipment and fault-finding. It involves a degree of autonomy and may include some supervision of others involving known routines and procedures and some accountability for the quality of outcomes in a specialised area of installation of telecommunication equipment on high structures, including radio towers.

This qualification prepares an individual for entry to the industry into the mainstream of telecommunications convergence technologies of radio, optical, data and internet protocol (IP) networks.

An operator uses rigging skills to install and maintain radio antennas on radio towers and build and mount sections of radio masts for a complete radio structure.

Job Roles 

Job roles and titles vary across different sectors of the industry. Possible job titles relevant to this qualification include:

  • installer of telecommunications network equipment on structures
  • installer of radio equipment and cabling on radio towers
  • maintainer and tester of telecommunications radio network equipment on structures
  • telecommunications rigger technician.

Prerequisite requirements 

There are no prerequisite requirements for individual units of competency.

Pathways Information
