Qualification Description

This qualification reflects the role of individuals who apply a broad range of competencies in providing services for the entertainment industry. It applies to work in scenery and set construction, lighting and sound, arts administration, entertainment customer service, music industry, film production, staging, broadcasting production, live production, entertainment administration, and entertainment technical operations work environments.

Individuals completing this qualification may provide assistance with technical support to a team and operate with discretion and judgment within known routines, methods, procedures and time constraints. They take responsibility for their own outputs and take limited responsibility for the output of others.

The job roles that relate to this qualification may include Front of House Assistant, Visual Merchandiser, Trainee Fly Operator, Technical Assistant (Productions), Special Effects Assistant, Assistant Sound Technician, Assistant Venue Technician, Follow Spot Operator, Runner, Props Assistant, Technical Production Assistant (Remote Area), Sound Assistant, Assistant Scenic Artist, Stagehand, Lighting, Audio and Staging Assistant, Venue Attendant, Workshop Carpenter, Production Crew, Stage Door Attendant, and Lighting Systems Technician. It also provides a pathway to other roles in similar work environments.

Licensing, legislative, regulatory or 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.

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:

  • CPCCLDG3001 Licence to perform dogging
  • CPCCLRG3001 Licence to perform rigging basic level
  • CPCCLRG3002 Licence to perform rigging intermediate level
  • CPCCLRG4001 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 'CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry' from the Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package fulfils this requirement.

Users are advised to check with the relevant licensing authority for requirements.

Units of competency in qualification

Some individual units of competency may have their own licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements. Users must check individual units of competency for licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements relevant to that unit.
