Regardless of the mode of delivery, represent a guide to the relative teaching time and student effort required to successfully achieve a particular competency/module. This may include not only scheduled classes or workplace visits but also the amount of effort required to undertake, evaluate and complete all assessment requirements, including any non-classroom activities.
Pre-requisites and Co-requisites
This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to install support systems for cable infrastructure. It involves planning cable routes and selecting and installing a support structure.
The activity may be for a new cable installation, upgrade of cable capacity for an existing network or subsystem, or cabling infrastructure for convergence to Next Generation Networks (NGN).
Assessment by a TITAB registered assessor is recommended.
All customer cabling work in the telecommunications, fire, security and data industries must be performed by a registered cabler. All cablers are required to register with an ACMA-accredited registrar.
National Codes, Titles, Elements and Performance Criteria
National Element Code & Title:
ICTCBL2005A Install customer cable support systems
1. Prepare cable support installation
1.1. Arrange access to the site according to required procedure and comply with site security arrangements and relevant legislation, codes, regulations and standards
2. Determine cable routes
2.1. Review relevant plans and verify cable locations
3. Determine support method
3.1. Select an appropriate support system for the planned cable route and identified site constraints
4. Mark out and install fixings and support structure
4.1. Mark out and install fixings and structures securely in a safe manner to manufacturer's specifications ensuring cable weight can be supported in all operating conditions
5. Complete support installation
5.1. Check and adjust installed supports to ensure cable will not be exposed to damage during installation and operation
Details of Learning Activities
Students will participate in a variety of teaching methods including: lectures, tutorials,practicals, class discussion,seminar presentations, group/individual work on projects, audio-visual presentations, site visits, and interaction with individuals and groups within the Telecommunications area.
The first stage of any installation or alteration is customer contact, and this involves but is not limited to:
Make building access arrangements where appropriate.
An installer should take a few minutes before starting the installation to go over the requirements with the customer.
Identify customer’s preference in relation to where they would like the equipment positioned is normally based on aesthetics’ as the equipment is normally installed on or within a piece of furniture.
Check job site for safety hazards and complete a Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) or Jab Safety Analysis (JSA).
Safety management is about reducing the risk of injury or harm for any person who may be affected by the work being carried out
Record existing signal readings
Signal level is the level of signal required to operate equipment effectively.
Check the customer’s existing equipment for operational condition and reception quality.
Check existing cabling and equipment compatibility
Determine if equipment to be added is compatible with what currently exists.
Identify interconnection cabling requirements
Familiarise yourself with the existing interconnecting cabling used to connect the customer’s equipment before commencing work
Identify barriers to installation and develop strategies to overcome them within time and budget restrictions
Discuss the support system for capability to meet the planned concentration of cable in any location to facilitate ready access for maintenance and to allow for future expansion
Mark out and install fixings and structures securely in a safe manner to manufacturer’s specifications ensuring cable weight can be supported in all operating conditions
Align support structure correctly to enable cable to be installed evenly, in order and without damage and with minimal disruption to ongoing
Install protective earthing to industry standards
Overview of Assessment
