Copper Cable Jointer

This stream reflects the role of operators in performing equipment and system installation work on customer network to enable efficient access and interconnection to the NBN broadband services. This includes connection and jointing of copper cable, diagnosing and rectifying copper cable system faults, and migration, remediation and augmentation of copper services to maximise benefits of the high speed broadband connection.

Technician Fibre

This stream reflects the role of operators in performing equipment and system installation work on customer network to enable efficient access and interconnection to the NBN broadband services. This includes diagnosing and rectifying fibre system faults, working with active equipment, and performing integration and commissioning activities to maximise benefits of the high speed broadband connection.

Fibre Splicer

This stream reflects the role of operators in applying optical fibre handling skills to splicing, testing and fault finding on live fibre cable in the fibre distribution network for NBN broadband networks.

Technician Hybrid fibre coaxial (HFC)

This stream reflects the role of operators in performing equipment and system installation work on customer network to enable efficient access and interconnection to the NBN broadband services. This includes connection and termination of HFC cabling, diagnosing and rectifying complex HFC system faults, and performing commissioning activities to maximise benefits of the high speed broadband connection.
