Qualification Description

This qualification reflects the role of individuals working in a range of technical production jobs in creative arts industry environments. They apply solutions to a defined range of unpredictable problems, and analyse and evaluate information from a variety of sources. They may provide leadership and guidance to others and have limited responsibility for the output of others.

Licensing/Regulatory Information

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:

  • 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, Plumbing and Services Training Package fulfils this requirement.

Pyrotechnics 

In some States and Territories of Australia a licence is required to allow a person to plan and operate a fireworks display.

Entry Requirements

To enter this qualification, individuals must provide evidence of their technical skills in either costume, lighting, scenery and props, screen and media, sound, staging or vision systems and the ability to:

  • produce a body of work demonstrating the ability to respond effectively to workplace requirements associated with at least one stream in line with current industry standards
  • apply a basic knowledge of trends and traditions in at least one area of technical production; and
  • have completed CUAWHS302 Apply work health and safety practices or can demonstrate equivalence.

Those skills and knowledge may have been acquired through personal or work experience, or through formal study.
