Release 1

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

Performance Evidence

Evidence of the ability to:

  • develop a project plan appropriate to the project objectives and the project proposal
  • support the initiation, control and completion of a simple small-scale information and communications technology (ICT) project
  • identify and apply requirements and expectations of a project according to the project plan.

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:

  • identify the different project-management and planning methods and tools
  • explain the characteristics of technical teams
  • describe the different methods of communication and communication styles, including interviewing techniques
  • explain the organisational values, policies and processes that may be relevant to the project
  • describe the risks associated with small scale projects including:
  • cost
  • scope
  • timelines.

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 ICT project management field of work, and include access to office equipment, materials and industry software packages.

Assessors must satisfy NVR/AQTF assessor requirements.
