Course Description

This unit covers the termination of cables and cords and their conductors at accessories and current-using devices designed to operate at voltages up to 1,000 V a.c. or 1,500 V d.c. It encompasses working safely and to standards, understanding wiring system and cable types and applications, selecting appropriate termination accessories, preparing and terminating cables and cords, terminating cables/cord conductors and ensuring completed termination complies with requirements.


National Codes, Titles, Elements and Performance Criteria

National Element Code & Title:

UEENEEG106A Terminate cables, cords and accessories for low voltage circuits

Element:

1. Prepare to terminate cables, cords and conductors.

Performance Criteria:

1.1 OHS procedures for a given work area are identified, obtained and understood.
1.2 Health and safety risks are identified and established risk control measures and procedures in preparation for the work are followed.
1.3 Safety hazards that have not previously been identified are noted and established risk control measures are implemented.
1.4 The junction box/ terminal enclosures and terminal types are inspected to select the type and size of cable and conductor termination devices needed.
1.5 Tools, materials and testing devices needed to for terminating cables and cords are obtained in accordance with established procedures and checked for correct operation and safety.

Element:

2. Terminate cables, cords and conductors.

Performance Criteria:

2.1 OHS risk control measures and procedures for carrying out the work are followed.
2.2 Circuits/machines/plant are checked as being isolated where necessary in strict accordance OHS requirements and procedures.
2.3 Cable/cord ends are cut and sheath/insulation stripped with sufficient length to prevent stain on terminations and without undue waste.
2.4 Cable glands/retaining devices are fitted and secured to ensure cable/cord cannot be pulled out of entry into junction box/ terminal enclosure
2.5 Conductors are prepared to suit the type of terminal at which there are to be connected.
2.6 Conductors are terminated to ensure continuity across the terminal.
2.7 Established methods for dealing with unexpected situations are discussed with appropriate person or persons and documented.
2.8 Unexpected situations are dealt with safely and with the approval of an authorised person.

Element:

3. Test terminated cables and cords.

Performance Criteria:

3.1 OHS work completion risk control measures and procedures are followed.
3.2 Terminated cables are tested to ensure continuity and insulation resistance comply with requirements.

Overview of Assessment

The assessment is conducted in both theoretical and practical aspects of the course according to the performance criteria set in the National Training Package. Assessment may incorporate a variety of methods including written/oral activities and demonstration of practical skills to the relevant industry standards. Participants are advised that they are likely to be asked to personally demonstrate their assessment activities to their teacher/assessor. Feedback will be provided throughout the course. To successfully complete this course you will be required to demonstrate competency in each assessment task detailed under Assessment Tasks:

Assessment 1: Assignment

Weighting towards final grade (%): 30

Assessment 2: Practical Test

Other Information

This course is accredited by Engineers Australia.

Engineering employment requires the capacity to work effectively in teams, to communicate effectively in both oral and writing and to learn effectively. In order to prepare students for employment as graduates they will be provided a quality assured teaching and learning environment which is conductive to the development of adult learning. Adult learning is characterised by the students accepting responsibility for their own learning and actively participating in the learning process as individuals and as contributors to the teams. Adult learning is the hallmark of a professional. The specific responsibilities as adult learners in respect of this subject are:
. to be aware of and to observe the regulations related to plagiarism
. to submit (on time) all work for assessment as required
. to complete all pre-reading and preparatory work prior to the class for which it will be used
. to effectively use the academic staff resources provided (consultation time, tutors, e- mail etc)
. to participate as an effective and honest member of a learning team
. to contribute effectively to a group of peers in a climate of mutual respect and to question each other and the academic staff when uncertain

Study and learning Support:

Study and Learning Centre (SLC) provides free learning and academic development advice to all RMIT students.
Services offered by SLC to support numeracy and literacy skills of the students are:
- Assignment writing, thesis writing and study skills advice
