Course Description

This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to install customer cable infrastructure. It involves selecting cable route, setting up cable dispensers and placing and securing cable.

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.
