The open cabler course is a great entry point for people wishing to work in the telecommunications industry. This course covers both the ACMA Open Rule and the ACMA Restricted Rule to give students the most updated Training available.
Upon successful completion of this course, individuals who have three hundred sixty (360) hours of authentic telecommunications cabling experience and meet the course prerequisites, will have constructed the skills and knowledge required to apply for an ACMA Open Cabler Registration.
*Please note, the Open Cabling Registration is issued by one of the five ACMA approved registrars and not JB Hunter. Further information on obtaining your Cabling Registration can be found here.
An Open Cabler Registration enables telecommunications workers to legally install and maintain telephone, security* and fire alarm cabling in all types of customer premises. This course replaces the old AUSTEL & BCL license courses. Technicians installing data, coaxial or fibre optic cable will also require the appropriate endorsement on their registration.
Course participants are required to read and bring to class an unmarked hard (printed) copy of the Australian Standards Installation Requirements for Customer Cabling (Wiring Rules) AS/CA S009:2013. Download the Standard, print it out and bring it to your face to face training session.
*Please note that for work in the security industry a separate Security Licence may be required depending on the location (State/Territory) and type of work being conducted.
The following units of competency MUST be completed or held prior to commencing your open registration course.
ICTWHS204 – Follow work health and safety and environmental policy and procedures
