Maintain aerial signal/telecommunications lines and cables

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 describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.


Inspect and service line and cable routes


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


Hazards are identified, risks are assessed and risk control measures are implemented


Routes are physically inspected to determine breaks, misalignments, damage and insulation wear requiring repair


Poles are inspected for deterioration and a safety assessment is made


Diagnose line and cable faults


Permission to test isolated equipment is confirmed prior to work being undertaken


Probable location of fault is identified from visual inspection and circuit tests are conducted to isolate fault area


Nature of fault is identified from further tests and corrective action required is identified to enable appropriate arrangements for resources and for work to be performed


Disconnection/insulation procedures are applied to enable maintenance work to be performed in isolation to systems where lines are in close proximity to high voltage services


Repair line and cable faults


Worksite is made safe in accordance with organisational safety requirements to enable repair work to be safely undertaken


Aerial lines/cables are repaired to operational and technical requirements using appropriate jointing or replacement/repair procedures


Repaired/replaced line/cable is tested to specified standards to ensure conformity to operational and technical requirements


Appropriate personnel are notified of completed repairs/replacement and appropriate documentation is completed and processed in accordance with organisational requirements and returned to appropriate organisation/department as required
