All cabling work, including telephone, data, fire and security alarm systems cabling, that connects with the telecommunications network must be performed by a registered cabler or under the direct supervision of a registered cabler.
Under the Cabling Provider Rules (CPRs), cablers are required to register with a registrar accredited by the ACMA.
All registered cablers are required to undertake appropriate training modules to ensure that they are competent to perform the cabling work according to the Wiring Rules (Australian Standard AS/CA S009), which ensure safety to consumers, cablers and the network.
Attention all cabler’s, you are now able to now move a larger range of nbn™ service’s under the recently released Authority to Alter Facilities in Residential and Small Business Premises. The nbn™ Authority to Alter will allow registered cabling technicians to make a range changes to nbn equipment within an end user’s premises without seeking prior permission from nbn. Such changes may include rewiring a home in order to move a Network Termination Device (NTD) from one room to another more suited to the end user’s needs.
nbn’s Authority to Alter which originally only allowed for registered cablers to modify internal cabling prior to the network boundary on the nbn™ FTTN Network has now been expanded to include the nbn™ FTTP,FTTC and HFC Networks. Modification of the nbn™ Wireless and Satellite premises networks prior to the NTD still requires permission from nbn™.
You will also notice on the webpage where you will find the document, you will see that nbn™ provides a link for consumers to the Australian Registered Cablers website, make sure you have registered and if not go to www.registeredcablers.com.au.
NOTE: the document is targeted to you as a Registered Cabler
Care must be taken when undertaking any work as the authorisation requires you to use only approved equipment and full testing. So make sure you access the webpage were you can download the full document as well as useful information for new properties.
ACMA cabling provider rules – Pathways to cabling registration update
The ACMA Cabling Provider Rules: Pathways to cabling registration document has been updated to reflect the release of the UEE training package 2.0.
The UEE Training Package was recently finalised and the updated qualifications and units of competency have been placed on the Department of Education, Skills and Employment website.
Find the updated Pathways to cabling registration document here>
Find the UEE Training Package for DET skills and Employment website here>
The key changes to the Pathways document are:
Training module UEECD0043
UEECD0043 is the new mapping for UEENEEE104A. AIS noted that in the Certificate III Electrician Qualification UEENEE104A has been replaced with two units split from it. These are:
- UEECD0044 Solve problems in multiple path circuits
- UEECD0046 Solve problems in single path circuits
It is intended that eventually UEECD0043 will be replaced across all qualifications by the two units. This applies for Charts 1, 2, 3 and 4 of the Pathways document.
Chart 5: Lift registration
In the current Pathways document there are two training units listed under the Electrotechnology training package context. These are:
- UEE41120 Certificate IV in Electrical – Lift Systems
AIS informed us that this qualification currently has had no enrolments in the last three years and is at risk for being removed from the national register.
- UEENEEF103A Install and maintain telecommunication cabling for services in lifts
AIS informed us that this unit was deleted (in June 2017) in line with the AISC requirements that any training package components with no enrolments in the previous three years be removed from the national register. The unit had no enrolments.
Your first call, every time.
