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:

  • evaluate client user requirements and hardware installation
  • install a range of network hardware by planning, managing and supporting the installation of new components in a network, according to organisational policies and procedures.

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:

  • summarise current industry, data and voice networking, security products, devices and procedures, including:
  • current industry accepted network protocols
  • organisational contracting procedures and responsibilities
  • system diagnostic software
  • outline current industry accepted network hardware and software products
  • explain hardware and software installation procedures
  • describe local area network (LAN) capabilities and characteristics, such as network type, internet protocol (IP) addressing, switch or hub operation
  • describe various features of network connections, including types of cables, cabling distance limitations and wireless connections
  • outline operating systems sufficient to enable basic installation
  • summarise set-up and configuration procedures
  • describe software packages supported by the organisation.

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:

  • vendor hardware and software components
  • application software and operating system
  • hardware maintenance tools
  • a live network
  • networked computers
  • organisational guidelines
  • technical documentation and installation manuals.

Assessors must satisfy NVR/AQTF assessor requirements.
