Pre-requisites and Co-requisites


Course Description

This unit covers determining correct operation of basic amplifier circuits. It encompasses working safely, problem solving procedures, including the use of voltage, current and resistance measuring devices, providing solutions derived from measurements and calculations to predictable problems in basic amplifier circuits.

National Codes, Titles, Elements and Performance Criteria

National Element Code & Title:

UEENEEH139A Troubleshoot basic amplifier circuits


1. Prepare to troubleshoot basic amplifiers.

Performance Criteria:

1.1 OHS procedures for a given work area are
obtained and understood.
1.2 OHS risk control work preparation measures
and procedures are followed.
1.3 The nature of the fault is obtained from
documentation or from work supervisor to
establish the scope of work to be undertaken.
1.4 Advice is sought from the work supervisor to
ensure the work is co-ordinated effectively
with others.
1.5 Sources of materials that may be required for
the work are established in accordance with
established procedures.
1.6 Tools, equipment and testing devices needed
to carry out the work are obtained and checked
for correct operation and safety.


2. Solve basic amplifier circuit problems.

Performance Criteria:

2.1 OHS risk control work measures and
procedures are followed.
2.2 The need to test or measure live is determined
in strict accordance with OHS requirements
and when necessary conducted within
established safety procedures.
2.3 Circuits are checked as being isolated where
necessary in strict accordance OHS
requirements and procedures.
2.4 Fault finding is approached methodically
drawing on knowledge of basic amplifiers
using measured and calculated values of
2.5 Unexpected situations are dealt with safely
and with the approval of an authorised person.
2.6 Fault finding activities are carried out
efficiently without unnecessary waste of
materials or damage to apparatus and the
surrounding environment or services and using
sustainable energy practices.


3. Complete work and document problem solving activities.

Performance Criteria:

3.1 OHS work completion risk control measures
and procedures are followed.
3.2 Work site is cleaned and made safe in
accordance with established procedures.
3.3 Justification for solutions used to
troubleshooting problems is documented.
3.4 Work completion is documented and an
appropriate person or persons notified in
accordance with established procedures.
