This qualification first released with ICT10 Integrated Telecommunications Training Package Version 2.0.

Description

This qualification reflects the role of an operator in the telecommunications industry who can apply a broad range of competencies in a varied work context from installation and maintenance of telecommunications equipment installed in base stations or mounted on structures requiring rigging skills.

This qualification has two streams that prepare an individual for entry to the industry in a specialised area of installation of telecommunication equipment on high structures including radio towers or for installation and connection of wireless base stations.

An operator uses rigging skills to install and maintain radio antennas on radio towers and build and mount sections of radio masts for a complete radio structure.

Job roles 

Job roles and titles vary across different sectors of the industry. Possible job titles relevant to this qualification include:

  • installer of radio telecommunications equipment on structures
  • installer of radio equipment and cabling on radio towers
  • installer of radio base stations
  • telecommunications rigger tradesperson.

Pathways Information

Pathways into the qualification 

Candidates may enter this qualification with limited or no vocational experience and without a relevant lower level qualification.

Pathways from the qualification 

After achieving the ICT20513 Certificate II in Telecommunications Rigging Installation, candidates may undertake the ICT30513 Certificate III in Telecommunications Rigging Installation, a qualification for those seeking to develop more specialised technical skills and knowledge, or a range of other Certificate III qualifications.

Licensing/Regulatory Information

Cabling 

The completion of unit ICTWHS2170B, ICTWHS2170A or ICTOHS2170A and the set of the following four units ICTCBL2005B, ICTCBL2006B, ICTCBL2008B and ICTCMP2022B that meet the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) requirements for Cabling Provider Rules (CPR) restricted registration, is generally used as a part of a more specialised customer cabling qualification. This set is regarded as more suitable for new entrants where limited or no industry experience has been obtained and forms the major part of specialised qualifications such as ICT20310 Certificate II in Telecommunications Cabling.

For cablers with restricted CPR qualifications there will be a requirement for the specialised competency unit ICTCMP2239B Perform restricted customer premises broadband cabling work: ACMA Restricted Rule, to be achieved when working on specialised broadband cabling.

All training programs must be undertaken with reference to the regulatory regime of the prevailing statutory authority for cabling (currently ACMA) and rigging.

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 

Some cabling and installation work 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).

Volume of Learning 

The volume of learning of a Certificate II is typically 0.5 – 1 year.
