This qualification has been designed as a pathway for entry into work on the National Broadband Network (NBN).
This qualification provides individuals with the skills and knowledge in a range of NBN industry occupations, specifically for the national rollout of high speed broadband network infrastructure. This may be undertaken as part of a traineeship.
In conjunction with safe working practices, the Telecommunications Linesworker occupational outcome is achieved by selecting one of three specialist technology streams: Fibre or Copper or Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC).
The Linesworker occupation reflects the role of operators who perform cable and infrastructure work underground. This involves safe civil and construction work in site preparation, building of enclosures, installing mounting brackets and hauling of underground cables. It also reflects the role of operators in performing work safely aboveground to install fibre or metallic aerial cable and infrastructure. This may also include installation of aerial lead-in cables to customer premises and providing traffic management.
