Qualification Description

This qualification reflects the role of individuals working in a range of technical production jobs in creative arts industry environments. It applies to work in lighting and sound, music industry, entertainment customer service, entertainment technical operations, entertainment administration, staging, wardrobe, scenery and set construction, broadcasting production, live production and entertainment technical operations work 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.

The job roles that relate to this qualification may include Pyrotechnician, Head Fly Operator, Fly Operator, Sound Recordist, Community Theatre Centre Worker, Wardrobe Technician, Costume Maker, Sound Technician, Set Maker, Lighting, Audio and Staging Worker, Assistant Stage Manager, Audiovisual Technician, Community Theatre Production Worker, Front of House Worker, Venue Technician, Lighting Technician and Operator, Props Maker, Model Maker, Scenic Artist, Audio Operator, Video Operator, Workshop Technician, Staging Team Leader, Production Coordinator and Show Control 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.

Pyrotechnics

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

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.

Entry Requirements

Individuals must provide evidence of their skills in live production and technical services and the ability to:

  • produce a body of work demonstrating the ability to respond effectively to workplace requirements associated with live production and technical services in line with current industry standards
  • apply a basic knowledge of trends and traditions in at least one area of technical production.

Skills and knowledge may have been acquired through experience or formal study.
