Qualification Description

This qualification has been designed as a pathway for entry into work on the National Broadband Network (NBN).

This qualification provides individuals with the skills and knowledge in a range of NBN industry occupations, specifically for the national rollout of high speed broadband network infrastructure. This may be undertaken as part of a traineeship.

In conjunction with safe working practices, the Telecommunications Linesworker occupational outcome is achieved by selecting one of three specialist technology streams: Fibre or Copper or Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC).

The Linesworker occupation reflects the role of operators who perform cable and infrastructure work underground. This involves safe civil and construction work in site preparation, building of enclosures, installing mounting brackets and hauling of underground cables. It also reflects the role of operators in performing work safely aboveground to install fibre or metallic aerial cable and infrastructure. This may also include installation of aerial lead-in cables to customer premises and providing traffic management.

Licensing/Regulatory Information

Work functions in the occupational areas where this qualification may be used may be subject to regulatory requirements. Refer to the ICT Implementation Guide Companion Volume or the relevant regulator for details of licensing, legislative or certification requirements.

Cabling at the customer premises must be carried out according to requirements of the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) and relevant industry registration bodies, and in line with the specifications of the access network owner. Refer to "Pathways to ACMA Cabling Provider Rules - Cabling registration" and the mandatory industry practical hours required for registration.

Packaging Rules

Total number of units = 12 

5 core units  plus

7 elective  units

The elective units consist of

  • up to 7 from Group A or Group B
  • up to 2 may be from elsewhere in this Training Package, another currently endorsed Training Package or any accredited course at AQF level II or III.

Elective units must be relevant to the work environment and the qualification, maintain the integrity of the Australian Qualification Framework (AQF) alignment and contribute to a valid, industry-supported vocational outcome. This could be achieved by selecting a specialisation (see below) or by selecting an appropriate mix of electives from both Group A and B.

Units selected from other training packages or accredited courses must not duplicate units selected from, or available within, the ICT Information and Communications Technology Training Package.

Refer to the Specialisations information below, and to the Companion Volume Implementation Guide, for advice about choosing electives to support specialisations.
