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 client software requirements
  • plan and deploy automatic installation of operating system and software
  • configure and test installation, ensuring client needs are met.

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 network protocols and operating systems, including:
  • transmission control protocols (TCP)
  • internet protocols (IPs)
  • network applications
  • describe organisational contracting procedures and responsibilities
  • outline software licensing requirements and documentation
  • explain current industry standards related to software deployment, including:
  • deployment software configuration
  • configuration of automated deployment processes
  • operating system deployment
  • software package deployment
  • troubleshooting deployment processes.

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 site or prototype where deployment processes may be implemented
  • a live network
  • software tools to support implementation of deployment processes
  • technical documentation and installation manuals
  • organisational guidelines.

Assessors must satisfy NVR/AQTF assessor requirements.
