Elements and Performance Criteria

ELEMENT 

PERFORMANCE CRITERIA 

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1. Install and manage network protocols

1.1 Select, test and validate appropriate network protocol services

1.2 Design a network addressing system, with subnet and host IDs, including appropriate devices

1.3 Configure hosts and workstations to use IP addresses either manually or through automatic allocation of addresses, such as found with dynamic host configuration protocol (DHCP)

2. Identify network protocol applications

2.1 Review a range of well-known network protocol applications

2.2 Evaluate client user requirement and recommend network protocol services

2.3 Apply internet protocol (IP) addressing scheme according to approved policy and procedures

Foundation Skills

This section describes language, literacy, numeracy and employment skills incorporated in the performance criteria that are required for competent performance.

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:

  • configure, test and validate network protocols in order to facilitate interconnectivity
  • install and manage network protocols in a network, and troubleshoot problems.

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 client business domain, including client organisation structure and business functionality
  • list current communications technologies and their associated protocols
  • outline current industry accepted hardware and software products, and general features and capabilities
  • summarise network protocols currently in use in the organisation and industry, including:
  • transmission control protocol
  • internet protocol (TCP/IP)
  • OSI models
  • clarify the vendor product range and development directions
  • describe how network protocols transcend organisational size and network complexity.

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 network industry, and include access to:

  • a live network
  • application software and operating system
  • appropriate learning and assessment support when required
  • networked computers
  • organisational guidelines
  • technical documentation and installation manuals
  • vendor software.

Assessors must satisfy NVR/AQTF assessor requirements.
