Qualification Description

This is an entry-level qualification for telecommunications technology operators who may:

  • install telecommunications equipment, data cabling and cabling products on customer premises
  • perform fault-finding on a limited range of digital reception equipment for both cable television and free-to-air television reception, for either a customer or an enterprise
  • install and maintain telecommunications radio communications equipment in base stations and connect wireless base stations
  • install and maintain telecommunications equipment on high structures including radio towers or for installation and connection of wireless base stations.

The qualification is suited to an individual undertaking work experience, or in a probationary period in employment.

It is particularly applicable to school-based delivery as an entry-level pathway to employment and is suitable as an Australian traineeship or apprenticeship pathway, except for the units of competency that involve high-risk work age restrictions.

Licensing/Regulatory Information

Work functions in the occupational areas where this qualification may be used are subject to regulatory requirements. Refer to the ICT Information and Communications Technology Companion Volume Implementation Guide 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.

High risk work (HRW) licences are required for dogging work and rigging as outlined on the Safe Work Australia website.

The model WHS Regulations require people performing HRW to be over 18 years of age and to hold the right HRW licence. HRW licences are issued by state/territory governments: refer to the relevant body to ensure compliance with regulations.
