Description

Description 

This qualification provides the skills and knowledge for an individual to function at a basic level of ICT competency in the contemporary information society. It will enable a person to undertake basic ICT functions using a personal computer and to engage in fundamental online activities. It could be described as 'the community standard in ICT literacy' and may be wholly or partially used as an access and equity program. Its objective is to enable people to acquire basic ICT knowledge and skills at a fundamental or foundation level.

This is a relatively 'small' qualification with 6 units required to be completed, 3 of which are core. Electives can be chosen from both ICA05 and to a limited extent from another package. The 3 core units form a 'natural cluster' which could be used for particular ICT literacy purposes including government ICT engagement programs, as a supplement to school curricula in middle to senior years or for adult and community education clients. In this form it may result in the issue of Statements of Attainment. It could also potentially form a relationship with base vendor certifications such as the International Computer Drivers Licence (ICDL).

Prerequisite Requirements 

There are no specific entry requirements for this qualification. However, prerequisite arrangements for any non ICA05 elective units in this qualification should be checked with the originating Training Package.

Job Roles 

The qualification provides for basic computer skills in the workplace and as such small to medium enterprises (SMEs) will find the contents of this qualification useful at a basic ICT user level. The contents of this qualification may also provide supplement existing roles in other industries where basic ICT skills have become necessary; for example in retailing where basic shop front computer usage is prevalent, in warehousing where automation of stock and inventory control has occurred or in manufacturing at shop floor level for monitoring metrics of team performance and processes.
