Qualification -
Unit of Competency TLIB3058 - Maintain aerial signal/telecommunications lines and cables
Description
Employability Skills
Learning Outcomes and Application This unit involves the skills and knowledge required to maintain aerial signal/telecommunications lines and cables in accordance with safeworking and regulatory requirements, and workplace procedures.It includes inspecting and servicing line and cable routes, diagnosing identified line and cable faults, and repairing line and cable faults to the standards specified to ensure system integrity.Work is performed under minimal supervision, generally within a team environment.It involves the application of routine operational principles and procedures when maintaining aerial signal/telecommunications lines and cables, as part of workplace activities across a variety of operational contexts within the Australian rail system.People achieving competence in this unit will need to fulfil the applicable state/territory legislated rail safety requirements and to comply with relevant codes of practice and/or guidelines.Operators of mechanised equipment must have undertaken training and, where appropriate, hold the relevant licence, permit or certificate and be recognised as competent for the class of machinery being used.No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
Duration and Setting X weeks, nominally xx hours, delivered in a classroom/online/blended learning setting.

As a minimum, assessors must satisfy applicable regulatory requirements, which include requirements in the Standards for Registered Training Organisations current at the time of assessment.

As a minimum, assessment must satisfy applicable regulatory requirements, which include requirements in the Standards for Registered Training Organisations current at the time of assessment.

Assessment must occur in workplace operational situations or, where this is not available, in simulated workplace operational situations that replicate rail workplace conditions.

Assessment processes and techniques must be appropriate to the language, literacy and numeracy requirements of the work being performed and the needs of the candidate.

Resources for assessment include:

a range of relevant exercises, case studies and/or simulations

relevant and appropriate materials, tools, equipment and personal protective equipment currently used in industry

applicable documentation including workplace procedures, regulations, rail industry standards, codes of practice and operation manuals.

Elements of Competency Performance Criteria              
Element: Inspect and service line and cable routes
       
Element: Routes are inspected and recorded, and arrangements are made for the removal of any obstructions, damage or infringing vegetation to provide free access to cables/aerials
       
Element: Hazards are identified, risks are assessed and risk control measures are implemented
       
Element: Routes are physically inspected to determine breaks, misalignments, damage and insulation wear requiring repair
