Qualification Description

This qualification reflects the role of individuals who possess a sound theoretical knowledge base and use specialised, technical or managerial competencies to design, plan, coordinate, carry out and evaluate technical requirements for productions, events or exhibitions in the creative arts industry. They have autonomy in carrying out their own work and can be responsible for planning, coordinating and evaluating the output of others within broad parameters.

It applies to work in staging, broadcasting, scenery and set construction, wardrobe, entertainment administration, lighting and sound, performing arts, arts administration, entertainment customer service, entertainment technical operations and live production work environments.

The job roles that relate to this qualification may include Special Effects Designer, Production Designer, Audio Visual Designer, Workshop Manager (Sets and Props), Costume Designer, Props Supervisor, Lighting Supervisor, Line Manager, Scenic Art Supervisor, Lighting Designer, Senior Stage Carpenter, Production Supervisor, Front of House Manager, Assistant Stage Manager, Stage Manager, Production Manager, Set Supervisor, Venue Manager (Theatre and Cinema), Set Designer, AV Systems Designer, AV Manager, AV IT Manager, Tour Manager, Automation Technician and Department Manager. 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.

Pyrotechnics

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

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.

Entry Requirements

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

  • develop solutions in at least one technical area
  • produce a body of work demonstrating skills in at least one technical area
  • respond effectively to workplace challenges and requirements in line with current industry standards
  • apply knowledge of trends and traditions in at least one technical area.

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