Formats and tools
- Unit Description
- Reconstruct the unit from the xml and display it as an HTML page.
- Assessment Tool
- an assessor resource that builds a framework for writing an assessment tool
- Assessment Template
- generate a spreadsheet for marking this unit in a classroom environment. Put student names in the top row and check them off as they demonstrate competenece for each of the unit's elements and performance criteria.
- Assessment Matrix
- a slightly different format than the assessment template. A spreadsheet with unit names, elements and performance criteria in separate columns. Put assessment names in column headings to track which performance criteria each one covers. Good for ensuring that you've covered every one of the performance criteria with your assessment instrument (all assessement tools together).
- Wiki Markup
- mark up the unit in a wiki markup codes, ready to copy and paste into a wiki page. The output will work in most wikis but is designed to work particularly well as a Wikiversity learning project.
- Evidence Guide
- create an evidence guide for workplace assessment and RPL applicants
- Competency Mapping Template
- Unit of Competency Mapping – Information for Teachers/Assessors – Information for Learners. A template for developing assessments for a unit, which will help you to create valid, fair and reliable assessments for the unit, ready to give to trainers and students
- Observation Checklist
- create an observation checklist for workplace assessment and RPL applicants. This is similar to the evidence guide above, but a little shorter and friendlier on your printer. You will also need to create a seperate Assessor Marking Guide for guidelines on gathering evidence and a list of key points for each activity observed using the unit's range statement, required skills and evidence required (see the unit's html page for details)
- Self Assessment Survey
- A form for students to assess thier current skill levels against each of the unit's performance criteria. Cut and paste into a web document or print and distribute in hard copy.
- Moodle Outcomes
- Create a csv file of the unit's performance criteria to import into a moodle course as outcomes, ready to associate with each of your assignments. Here's a quick 'how to' for importing these into moodle 2.x
- Registered Training Organisations
- Trying to find someone to train or assess you? This link lists all the RTOs that are currently registered to deliver ICTCBL203, 'Terminate metallic conductor customer cable'.
- Google Links
- links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
- Reference books for 'Terminate metallic conductor customer cable' on fishpond.com.au. This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to ntisthis.com for every purchase, so go nuts :)
Elements and Performance Criteria
Elements describe the essential outcomes.
Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.
1. Prepare cable termination
1.1 Arrange access according to customer and individual worksite requirements
1.2 Prepare for cable terminating work within regulatory environment, cabling environment, cable type, cable identification, termination systems, earthing and protection, records and relevant legislation, codes, regulations and standards
1.3 Select correct termination for installation according to strategies to manage infrastructure and relevant legislation, codes, regulations and standards
1.4 Notify appropriate personnel of identified safety hazards at cabling worksite
1.5 Identify remote power feeding services that operate at above telecommunications network voltage (TNV) inside customer premises, and risks posed by contact with remote power feed
1.6 Remove all contaminants from worksite that may adversely affect termination and prepare worksite to ensure adequate visibility to minimise errors and reduce eye strain
1.7 Design cable and block location within frame with capacity for expansion where possible
1.8 Segregate incoming and outgoing cables for ease of access and to minimise overlaying and backtracking of cable
2. Terminate cable
2.1 Remove cable sheath to allow for conductor length and installation requirements
2.2 Fan out cable pair groups to manufacturerâ€™s coding system to ensure correct terminating sequence and unique identification where appropriate
2.3 Install over-voltage protection devices to all cables with metallic component where required
2.4 Install terminating modules to frame according to manufacturerâ€™s specifications
2.5 Fan cable pairs neatly to termination equipment to facilitate accurate termination
2.6 Terminate cable following work health and safety (WHS) and environmental requirements to manufacturerâ€™s specifications using correct tool
2.7 Earth cable shield to manufacturerâ€™s specifications and industry standards
3. Test termination
3.1 Conduct visual inspection to confirm that termination colour code sequence has been followed
3.2 Test termination to satisfy performance specifications and record results if required
4. Complete records and clean up site
4.1 Label cable pairs clearly to provide an accurate identification according to manufacturer, industry and customer standards
4.2 Update records and plans with cabling details to provide accurate record according to industry codes of practice and current Australian standards
4.3 Complete telecommunications cabling advice (TCA) forms and provide to customer
4.4 Remove installation waste and debris from worksite and dispose of according to environmental requirements to maintain safe worksite conditions
