Application

This unit of competency defines the skills and knowledge required to locate faults in analog electronic equipment or sub-assemblies, and replace faulty components.

Where soldering of components is required to advanced or military specifications, where the reliability of electrical connections is critical, or where surface mounted devices are being soldered/de-soldered then unit MEM05002 Perform high reliability soldering and desoldering should also be selected.

Where termination of cables is required unit MEM10002 Terminate and connect electrical wiring and unit MEM18063 Terminate signal and data cables, should also be selected as appropriate.

Where the selection and use of engineering measurement is required unit MEM12023 Perform engineering measurements should also be selected.

Where the selection and use of power tools/hand held operations is required unit MEM18002 Use power tools/hand held operations should also be selected.

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