List the assessment methods to be used and the context and resources required for assessment. Copy and paste the relevant sections from the evidence guide below and then re-write these in plain English.
Elements describe the essential outcomes.
Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.
1. Prepare for cut over
1.1 Obtain relevant legislation, codes, regulations and standards for compliance when conducting work
1.2 Notify customer for site access, security arrangements and location details of customer equipment for major upgrade
1.3 Identify site hazards and notify appropriate personnel to make site safe
1.4 Prepare cut over plan and seek approval from customer
1.5 Complete functional testing of new systems and equipment prior to cut over to minimise system downtime
1.6 Notify network carrier of cut over details to prevent unnecessary alarm call-outs and reports
1.7 Organise system back-up with support personnel
2. Cut over system and equipment into service
2.1 Conduct cut over works for major system upgrade according to cut over plan with minimal disruption to customer service according to work health and safety (WHS) and environmental requirements
2.2 Conduct tests according to technical manuals and specifications to complete installation task
2.3 Analyse test results to verify system compatibility and interoperability with existing system
2.4 Rectify any problems, if required
3. Finalise work and clean up worksite
3.1 Complete documentation containing installation details and test records
3.2 Amend site records to show existing equipment layout
3.3 Organise customer training in the new or modified system
3.4 Clean up and restore site to customer satisfaction
3.5 Collect and dispose of waste material and debris according to environmental requirements
3.6 Notify customer of job completion to obtain sign-off and present with a copy of documentation
Evidence of ability to:
develop and implement an effective cut over plan
identify and organise resources including customer resources and access as necessary to complete cut over
conduct cut over and relevant tests according to work health and safety (WHS) and environmental requirements
interpret test results to identify and resolve problems
finalise administrative tasks and initiate training.
Note: If a specific volume or frequency is not stated, then evidence must be provided at least once.
To complete the unit requirements safely and effectively, the individual must:
outline cut over procedures
define customer premisesâ€™ equipment CPE
illustrate features and operating requirements of test equipment
outline information required to operate equipment according to a test specification
outline legislation, codes of practice and other formal agreements that impact the work activity
explain manufacturerâ€™s requirements for safe operation of equipment
describe specific work health and safety (WHS) requirements relating to activity and site conditions
explain test methods and performance requirements
describe typical issues and challenges that occur on site.
Gather evidence to demonstrate consistent performance in conditions that are safe and replicate the workplace. Noise levels, production flow, interruptions and time variances should be typical of those experienced in the telecommunications network engineering field of work and include access to:
a site where cut over can be conducted
plant, tools and equipment currently used in the industry
relevant regulatory and equipment documentation impacting work activities.
Assessors of this unit must satisfy the requirements for assessors in applicable vocational education and training legislation, frameworks and/or standards.
