  • Specialist technologist
  • Technical officer
  • Technology project officer.

Pathways Information

Qualification pathways 

Pathways into the qualification 

Candidates may enter the qualification with vocational experience and/or qualifications in the fields of IT, electronics or communications engineering.

Licensing/Regulatory Information

Licensing , legislative , regulatory and certification considerations 

There is no direct link between this qualification and licensing, legislative and/or regulatory requirements. However, where required, a unit of competency will specify relevant licensing, legislative and/or regulatory requirements that impact on the unit.

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 and Plumbing Integrated Framework Training Package fulfils this requirement.

Information on occupational licensing and its intersection with vocational education and training can be found in Licensing Line News at www .licensinglinenews .com .

EME hazards 

RF workers are required to complete an Electro Magnetic Emissions (EME) Awareness course. In order to attend a site where there is substantial EME hazard (such as a broadcast transmission site) an understanding of the risks of EME and the necessary precautions to mitigate the risks is required.

First aid 

The broadcast industry recommends completion of the St John Ambulance Senior First Aid course.
