ACMA Open Registration Course

This course we are providing is nationally recognised and forms part of an AQF certification.
Students will have to complete a Language, Literacy and Numeracy online assessment (more information hereas well as successfully complete all the online content before attending class.

Why do I need to have an Open Registration

An Open Registration is the first and primary course a student should undertake if they wish to work in the Telecommunications industry as successful completion will enable a student to apply for an Open Registration with one of the five registrars to legally work in most areas relating to Telecommunications Cabling. This is mandatory for installation and maintenance of telephone, data, security and fire protection cabling, in all types of customer premises under the Telecommunications Cabling Provider Rules.

Working within the industry without the applicable registration means you are not complying with the Telecommunications Act and can incur an on the spot fine of $2040.00. if the matter is serious enough, the ACMA can take court prosecution action against the cabler. A court prosecution may result in a conviction and/or a fine of up to $90,000. For more information click here.
