Release 1

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

Performance Evidence

Evidence of the ability to:

  • research and critically analyse client specifications against accepted industry practices
  • produce technical solutions from business specifications
  • analyse feedback from client and make adjustments to proposal
  • apply design concepts to business solutions
  • produce technical reports regarding design of the solution
  • make recommendations and offer optimum design solutions
  • produce an evaluation document on impact of technical requirements on the business.

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:

  • outline business models and tools
