Learning Outcomes


Refer to Elements


Details of Learning Activities

Learning and simulated work activities to demonstrate the importance of clearly understanding and following Occupational Health and Safety procedures.

Classroom tutorial activities:
Lectures: to introduce the important concepts.
Attending lectures will make it much easier for you to understand the central concepts of the course
You will feel more comfortable and you will learn more if you read the relevant material before you attend the lectures

Tutorials: to enable you to ask questions and to clarify unresolved issues
Review the material and prepare your questions before you come to class
There will be an overview of course content with a focus on the material students find difficult
If something is unclear or if you find yourself falling behind please ask for help immediately
You may be given worksheets to complete during the tutorial

Lab exercises: to give you the hands on experience of implementing and troubleshooting networks
In general there will be one practical exercise per week
You will perform the exercise and write it up in a lab journal
The lab journal will be a bound exercise book
Loose leaf binders will not be accepted
The write up will be a record of your actions as they are performed and your corresponding observations
The write up must be performed in the lab as you perform the practical exercise, not at a later date
Write ups not in the lab journal will not be marked
Write ups which are not done concurrently with the performance of the practical exercise will not be marked
In general the detail of the write up must be sufficient for you to be able to comfortably perform the practical exercise a year or more later directly from the lab journal
Any difficult or unusual points should be especially noted in the lab journal for future reference
Responses to worksheets for practical exercises must be written up in the lab journal
The neatness, completeness and the presentation of the lab journal must be of a quality such that you would be prepared to show it to a future employer as an example of your work

Work simulated activities: you will given  tasks and scenarios to complete as you would be expected to perform in industry.

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: Research Work and Presentation 

Weighting towards final grade: (%): 10+10 = 20%

Assessment 2: Practical Tests
Weighting towards final grade (%): 50 (2 x 25%)

Assessment 3: Closed Book Test
Weighting towards final grade (%): 30%

these tasks assesses the following Course Learning Outcomes (CLOs):
