Release 1

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

Performance Evidence

Evidence of the ability to:

  • determine new and emerging technologies suitable for organisational requirements
  • lead the implementation of new and emerging industry specific technologies
  • analyse, and critically evaluate the industry specific technology and its application to the organisation.

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:

  • analyse and appraise current technology trends and directions in the information and communications technology (ICT) sector
  • specify the major industry standards used for the new technologies
  • evaluate vendor products and the direction in which they are trending
  • summarise information gathering techniques
  • appraise the general features, capabilities and application of current industry hardware and software products.

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 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.
