Description

Description 

This qualification provides the foundation ICT skills and knowledge for an individual to be an effective ICT user or employee. The qualification has a fundamental ICT knowledge and skills base which is pivotal for all other qualifications in ICA05. The 8 core units contain those basic ICT skills and knowledge required for effective entry into all ICA05 qualifications from Certificate III upwards.

The qualification introduces OH&S and soft skills such as communication into the 8 core units. Electives make up 40 per cent of the qualification and are to be selected predominantly from ICA05 but with the option of up to half of the electives coming from other packages. A number of electives provide effective entry into the Certificate III in IT. It is possible to achieve this qualification during the final years of secondary school education subject to the demonstration of competency to a standard expected in the workplace.

Job Roles 

The qualification provides foundation general computing and employment skills that enable participation in an information technology environment in any industry. Small to medium enterprises (SMEs) will find the contents of this qualification useful at an ICT user level. In its own right such a qualification could equip an individual to undertake roles such as office assistant or to work in records management at a junior level; however its usefulness is most likely to be found in supplementing functions in roles prevalent in other industries.
