Place, secure and terminate coaxial cable

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 coaxial cable


Maintain cable segregation to industry standards

Bend radius does not exceeded manufacturer specifications


Place cable with sufficient slack to allow termination


Place cable accurately in accordance with installation designs and manufacturer specifications


Install cable safely without damage to cable or clients premises


Cable lengths do not exceed manufacturer or design specifications and maintain RF signal integrity


Secure coaxial cable


Locate securing hardware at uneven distances to minimise the cumulative effect on cable wave shape properties


Cable ties and brackets are flexible and do not damage cable


Fit over voltage protection devices to all cables with metallic component where required


Bend ratios do not exceeded manufacturer specifications and industry standard


Terminate coaxial cable


Strip coaxial cable cleanly to required length using manufacturers tool


Select connectors specified to match the type of coaxial cable in use


Select terminating method in accordance with manufacturer specification


Connector fitting retains the segregation of conductor and shield


Terminate connectors to torque as recommended by manufacturers to ensure no RF leakage can occur


The termination maintains a continuous reference


All terminations are waterproof where appropriate to prevent risk of damage to termination and cable function
