PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
This unit standard is for persons who perform various functions that are supported by the ability to install cable of different types. This unit standard will provide learners with knowledge and skills to terminate and secure cabling from point of origin to termination point using different methods.

Learners will be able to identify and select cable types and methods of termination in line with operational requirements.

Learners accredited with this Unit Standard will be capable of:
  • Describing cable types.
  • Applying cable termination methods.
  • Securing cabling from point of origin to termination point. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
  • Communication, NQF Level 2.
  • Mathematical Literacy, NQF Level 2.
  • Unit Standards which include the use of hand tools at a minimum of NQF Level 1 and the use of power tools at a minimum of NQF-Level 2.
  • The following unit standard, or similar:
  • 244321- Use elementary electronics as applied to electronic systems, Level 3 or similar.
