Reading

1.1, 1.3, 2.1, 2.4, 3.2, 3.3

  • Identifies and interprets technical online and hard copy documentation containing complex terminology and diagrams to identify industry specific technologies that will benefit the organisation, and to determine environmental considerations

Oral Communication

1.1-1.3, 2.4, 3.1-3.3

  • Elicits information and feedback by using effective listening and questioning techniques to identify and evaluate industry specific technologies

Assessment requirements

Modification History

Release 

Comments 

Release 1

This version first released with ICT Information and Communications Technology Training Package Version 1.0.

Performance Evidence

Evidence of the ability to:

  • identify new and emerging industry specific technologies
  • apply and evaluate features and functions of identified industry specific technologies to an industry standard.

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:

  • discuss current industry specific technology trends and directions, and the major standards
  • outline vendor product directions
  • describe the general features, capabilities and application of current industry hardware and software products
  • discuss information gathering techniques.

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 general information and communications technology (ICT) industry, and include access to:

  • a site where industry specific technologies may be used
  • industry specific technologies currently used in industry
  • documents detailing workplace health and safety (WHS) standards, environmental guidelines and organisational requirements.

Assessors must satisfy NVR/AQTF assessor requirements.
