Release 1

This version first released with ICT Information and Communications Technology Training Package Version 2.0.

Performance Evidence

Evidence of ability to:

  • adapt technologies for required technical solutions
  • use site design software and hardware
  • evaluate client specifications against accepted industry practices
  • develop technical solutions from business specifications
  • document information that can be shared between businesses
  • apply design concepts to business solutions
  • document technical reports
  • make recommendations and offer optimum design solutions.

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:

  • explain the client business domain, business function and organisation
  • explain compatibility issues and resolution procedures
  • outline configuration of internet protocol (IP) networks
  • describe common desktop applications and operating systems
  • explain how to document technical specifications
  • summarise security protocols, standards and data encryption
  • explain the role of the following technologies in business systems:
  • network topologies
  • network protocols and operating systems
  • radio frequency (RF) networks
  • optical networks
  • mobile cellular networks
  • core networks
  • access networks
