Release 1

This version first released with ICT Information and Communications Technology Training Package Version 6.0.

Application

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to design and implement network authentication models that allow users to log in using the same user credentials between multiple operating system platforms and that provides a secure method of file sharing on a single, shared network.

It applies to individuals working in network or systems engineering roles, where they are required to support multiple operating systems in a complex computing environment of medium-to-large organisational settings.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.

Foundation Skills

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

S KILL 

DESCRIPTION 

Numeracy

  • Analyses numerical information to take measurements, interpret results and evaluate performance and interoperability of network

Reading

  • Interprets and analyses enterprise procedures, manuals and specifications to determine requirements

Writing

  • Prepares workplace documentation that incorporates an evaluation of technical information and specialised and cohesive language in a format and style required for a specific audience

Teamwork

  • Actively identifies the requirements of important communication exchanges, selecting channels, format, tone and content to suit purpose and audience

Planning and organising

  • Uses a combination of formal, logical planning processes and an increasingly intuitive knowledge of context to plan, prioritise and monitor own work

Problem solving

  • Makes a range of decisions in relatively complex situations, taking a range of constraints into account
  • Initiates standard procedures and contingency management skills when responding to familiar problems to adapt configuration procedures to requirements of network and reconfigure, depending on differing operational contingencies, risk situations and environments

Self-management

  • Demonstrates knowledge of the implications of legal and regulatory responsibilities related to own work

Technology

  • Demonstrates knowledge of key principles and concepts underpinning design and operation of digital systems and tools and applies these when troubleshooting existing technology
