Level: Vocational Education and Training (VET)

This qualification is for telecommunications operators working on the construction and maintenance of high-speed national broadband network (NBN) infrastructure, and on required technology.Telecommunications technology operators may:perform equipment and system installation work on a customer network to enable efficient access and interconnection to the NBN services, including connecting and jointing of copper cable, diagnosing and rectifying copper cable system faults, and migrating, remediating and augmentation of copper services to maximise benefits of the high-speed broadband connectionsplice, test and fault-find on live fibre cable in the NBN fibre distribution networkperform equipment and system installation work on a customer network to enable efficient access and interconnection to the NBN services, including diagnosing and rectifying fibre system faults, working with active equipment, and performing integration and commissioning activities to maximise benefits of the high-speed broadband connectionperform underground and aerial equipment and system installations from the tap to the optical node to enable efficient access and interconnection to the NBN services, including connecting and terminating hybrid fibre coaxial (HFC) cabling, diagnosing and rectifying HFC system faultsinstall, activate and assure HFC equipment and systems from the last connection point of the network to the customer premises \u2013 tap to network termination device (NTD) \u2013 to enable efficient access and interconnection to the NBN services. Licensing/Regulatory Information Work functions in the occupational areas where this qualification may be used are subject to regulatory requirements. Refer to the ICT Information and Communications Technology Training Package Companion Volume Implementation Guide or the relevant regulator for details of licensing, legislative or certification requirements. Cabling at the customer premises downstream of the NTD must be carried out according to requirements of the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) and relevant industry registration bodies, and in line with the specifications of the access network owner.
