Qualification Image

This qualification prepares an individual for entry into the telecommunications industry and its convergent technologies, including radio, optical, data and internet protocol (IP) networks.
This qualification reflects the role of an operator in the telecommunications industry who can apply a broad range of competencies using a defined range of skills where some discretion and judgement is required in the selection, installation and configuration of equipment in convergence technologies that integrate radio, optical and internet protocol (IP) based applications. .
This role includes assessing installation requirements, planning and performing installations, testing installed equipment and fault finding. It involves a degree of autonomy and may include some supervision of others. Work is performed according to known routines and procedures and there is some accountability for the quality of outcomes.
The qualification has a generic outcome if no specialisation has been undertaken. When a specialisation has been selected then the qualification has one of the following outcomes.
