Release 1

This version first released with ICT Information and Communications Technology Training Package Version 2.0.

Application

This unit describes skills and knowledge required to erect cable supports in small aerial client installations and access networks where they may be required to do new installations, upgrades or maintain existing networks in domestic, commercial and industrial installations to deliver services in xdigital subscriber lines (xDSL), fibre to the home (FTTH) and hybrid fibre coaxial (HFC) networks.

It applies to individuals working as telecommunications linesmen and line installers who make use of aerial support structures and specialist tools.

Work functions in the occupational areas where this unit may be used are subject to regulatory requirements.

Refer to the ICT Implementation Guide Companion Volume or the relevant regulator for details of licensing, legislative or certification requirements.

Release 1

This version first released with ICT Information and Communications Technology Training Package Version 2.0.

Performance Evidence

Evidence of the ability to:

  • install a pole and aerial fixing device after relevant authorities have been notified and approvals obtained prior to commencement
  • demonstrate use of specialised hand or power tools and equipment for the installation of aerial cable supports safely
  • apply work health and safety (WHS) requirements and work practices associated with the installation of aerial cable supports, including protective clothing and personal safety items, adequate warning signs and safety devices.

Note: If a specific volume or frequency is not stated, then evidence must be provided at least once.

Knowledge Evidence

To complete the unit requirements safely and effectively, the individual must:

  • describe the features and operating requirements of equipment
  • describe the information required to operate equipment according to a specification
  • identify legislation, codes of practice and other formal agreements that impact on the work activity
  • describe licence requirements for working at heights
  • identify the manufacturer’s requirements for safe operation of equipment
  • identify specific WHS requirements relating to the activity and site conditions
  • describe test methods and performance requirements
  • identify typical issues and challenges that occur on site.

Assessment Conditions

Gather evidence to demonstrate consistent performance in conditions that are safe and replicate the workplace. Noise levels, production flow, interruptions and time variances should be typical of those experienced in the telecommunications – cabling field of work and include access to:

  • sites where aerial cable supports may be installed
  • plant, tools and equipment to erect aerial supports currently used in industry
  • relevant regulatory and equipment documentation that impacts on aerial support erection activities.

Assessors of this unit must satisfy the requirements for assessors in applicable vocational education and training legislation, frameworks and/or standards.
