Performance Evidence

Evidence of the ability to:

  • read and interpret plans and specifications
  • develop and implement a cutover work plan
  • install customer premises equipment
  • configure and test systems and equipment
  • apply relevant regulations and standards.

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:

  • identify and select cabling types, connectors and cabling structures
  • describe the legislation, codes of practice and other formal agreements that impact on the work activity
  • describe the manufacturer’s requirements for safe operation of equipment
  • explain the equipment requiring cutover at the customer's premises
  • specify the health and safety requirements relating to the activity and site conditions
  • identify and select the test methods and performance requirements
  • describe the features and operating requirements of test equipment for cutover
  • identify typical issues and challenges that occur on the worksite.
