Release 

Comments 

Release 1

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

Performance Evidence

Evidence of the ability to:

  • excavate for installation of an enclosure and conduit to industry standards, applying related health and safety requirements and work practices
  • install enclosure and conduit according to specifications and industry standards
  • restore site and complete documentation.

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:

  • recognise the features and operating requirements of excavation and installation to select appropriate equipment
  • outline the manufacturer’s requirements for safe operation of equipment
  • recognise the legislation, codes of practice and other formal agreements that impact on the work activity
  • specify health and safety requirements relating to the activity and site conditions
  • identify the components required for enclosures, pits and conduit
  • describe the methods of installing enclosures and conduit as they apply to manufacturer's specifications and regulation
  • 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 must be typical of those experienced in the telecommunications – cabling field of work and include access to:

  • sites where installation of underground enclosures and conduit may be conducted
  • installation pits, enclosures and conduit currently used in industry
  • relevant regulatory and equipment documentation that impacts on cable installation activities.

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