With the expansion of the nbn™ to every premise in Australia, as well as growth in private networks, demand for workers with the skills to install underground infrastructure and associated cabling has never been higher. Take advantage of this demand and skill yourself for the telecommunications industry. This course covers the theory and skills behind multiple cabling types covering copper, fibre and coaxial hauling techniques.
This is a Telstra and nbn™ accredited course providing learners with the necessary skills to work in accordance with Telstra and nbn™ requirements.
Because this course is an approved skills set of nbn™’s Project Athena, successful participants may upload their statement of attainment to the enAble system for workforce accreditation. Additionally students who already hold an Open Cabler Registration may also provide their Statement of Attainment to their cabling registrar to have the underground endorsement added to their existing Open Cabler Registration.
