Place, secure and terminate structured cabling and certify installation

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

Elements and Performance Criteria

Elements and Performance Criteria


Performance Criteria


Place structured cable


Cable and services separations are maintained in runs and cross overs to meet manufactures and industry standards


Installed structured cable is free from damage to ensure twist ratio in cable is maintained to optimise performance


Twist ratio defects are minimised to avoid accumulation effect on structured cable performance


Correct structured cable type is installed to meet intended installation environment and customer requirements


Maximum structured cable runs lengths are not exceeded to maintain system performance level


Environment conditions are assessed to meet manufactures specifications prior to installation


Structured cable is placed in methodical manner taking due care to maintain manufactures performance specifications


Bending ratios are maintained to manufacturers and industry standard requirements to ensure system performance at rated level


Secure structured cable


Securing method avoids damage to cable and/or sheath


Cable anchors maintain pair alignment and do not compress cable sheath


Cable is free from tension


Bending ratios are maintained to manufacturers and AS/ACIF or ACMA standard requirements to ensure system performance and ratio speed level


Over voltage protection devices are fitted to all cables and metallic component where required


Terminate structured cable


Twist ratio is maintained to manufacturers specifications and as close as possible to termination point to optimise system performance at rated level


All termination hardware used is rated as structured cable to ensure integrity and performance of termination and terminated using appropriate termination tool


Cable shield is earthed to manufacturers specifications and relevant industry standards if applicable


Cable sheath removal is minimised in accordance with manufactures instructions


Certify system performance to required level


Certification requirements are identified to ensure tests and recording of results are relevant


Tests of performance are accurate and valid and are conducted impartially


System performance is recorded promptly and verified where required


Appropriate documentation is authorised and issued to certify system performance
