Course Description

This course is for those looking to obtain the Open Registration. This is the best starting point for work within the Telecommunications Industry (on either the Customer Premises or Carrier Network). Once obtained, the Open Registration Licence covers various aspects of customer premises cabling, such as Telecommunications, Security Systems, and Fire Protection.
Following completion of this course, learners will receive a statement of attainment which is used to apply for an Open Registration (previously known as the Austel Licence). Learners will also need to undertake supervised work experience on relevant cabling in order to gain the Open Registration.
For details regarding the application requirements for obtaining an Open Registration, please contact ACMA or one of ACMA’s approved registrars. Since 1st July 2012, the Open Registration only covers telephony cabling, therefore in order to work with Structured Cabling (Cat 5 and above), Coaxial Cabling, or Optical Fibre, workers will need to gain endorsements on the open registration licence through further training.
Before applying for the Open registration, the learner will need to provide the evidence of having completed 360 hours of practical Cabling work.
