What you must do to complete the course

The course structure below shows what you must do to complete this course.
units/modules are arranged in groups and sometimes also in subgroups.
 
You must complete each group as specified as well as following the course
completion instructions.   If a course contains optional groups there will
statement at the top of the course indicating how many you must do.  At the
top of any group containing optional subgroups there will be a statement
saying how many you must do.
 
 
This course has been designed to reflect the packaging requirements of the
Advanced Diploma of Computer Systems - Technology (UEE60507),from the
Electrotechnology Training Package UEE07. The Electrotechnology Training
Package UEE07 states the following rules for this qualification.
 
The requirements for awarding this qualification are that the following are
successfully achieved:
 
- All of the Core competency standard units;
- The required number of Stream Core competency standard units;
- The required number of Elective Competency Standard Units as prescribed
in the respective Schedule (in accordance with Schedule 3,4,5 and 6 which
form an integral part of this qualification, achieve a Unit Strand Total
of at least 45 of which at least 27 shall be selected from Schedule 5 or
higher and not more than 18 from Schedule 4 as specified);
- All the required prerequisite competency standard units have been met as
required.
 
To satisfy the Electrotechnology Training Package (UEE07) rules, to be
awarded the qualification - Advanced Diploma of Computer Systems -
Technology (UEE60507), the TAFE NSW course structure requires successful
completion of: Group  1: All of the Core Competency Standard Units.
Group  2: At least three (3) Stream Core Competency Standard Units.
Group  3: Elective Competency Standard Units to a weighting of at least
45 points, selected from sub-groups 1-3. Units to a weighting of not
more than 18 may be selected from sub-group 2 and units to a weighting
of at least 27 must be selected from sub-group 3.
 
Many elective Competency Standard Units have prerequisite Competency
Standard Units. For details of prerequisite Competency Standard Units and
full prerequisite chain please refer to table 2, Index of Competency
Standard Units on page 451 of Volume 1 of the Electrotechnology Training
Package UEE07.  

All the required pre-requisite Competency Standard Units must be achieved
prior to completing each Competency Standard Unit.
 
This course consists of:
 
- Competency Standard Units (Groups 1, 2 and 3)
These are from the National Electrotechnology Training Package - UEE07 and
groupings align to the qualification - Advanced Diploma of Computer
Systems - Technology (UEE60507). They are ungraded.
 
- Learning Specifications (Group 4)
These modules do not count towards course completion but provide
consistency in content, delivery, assessment and reporting mechanism
across RTOs of the Essential Knowledge and Associated Skills, which are
prescribed as part of the Critical Aspects of Evidence in each Competency
Standard Unit.  

- Additional Competency Standard Units (Group 5)
These units do not count towards course completion because they
are at an AQF level lower than that prescribed in the UEE07 Training
Package- packaging rules. They can be used: to contexualise training
to suit industry and learners and/or as pre-requisite units.
 
- Support Modules (Group 998)
These provide development and tutorial support to the learners to help them
achieve the qualification.
 
The course has been structured into the following groups:
 
Group 1 - CORE COMPETENCY STANDARD UNITS
These units represent the substantial and/or technical focus part of the
overall group of competency standard units that make up the qualification
and its intended outcome.
 
Group 2 - STREAM CORE COMPETENCY STANDARD UNITS
These units provide the flexibility required to support enterprise quality
assurance arrangements including administrative matters related to
enterprise practices and work outcomes.
 
Group 3 ELECTIVE COMPETENCY STANDARD UNITS
These units represent the work context or environment in which the
technical requirements of development are applied. They are included
specifically to meet particular work organisation and skill requirements
of enterprises and completion requirements.
 
Additional elective Competency Standard Units may be added to Group 3 on
request, provided they meet the UEE07 Electrotechnology Training Package
requirements, such as prerequisite pathways and AQF level.
 
Group 4 LEARNING SPECIFICATIONS FOR COMPETENCY STANDARD UNITS
These modules align to the Essential Knowledge and Associated Skills
component of each Core, Stream Core and Elective Competency Standard unit
as specified in the Unit Guides
 
Group 5 ADDITIONAL COMPETENCY STANDARD UNITS
These units do not count towards course completion because they
are at an AQF level lower than that prescribed in the UEE07 Training
Package- packaging rules. They can be used: to contexualise training
to suit industry and learners and/or as pre-requisite units.
 
Group 998 OPTIONAL SUPPORT MODULES
These provide support to learners to help them achieve the qualification.
 
Note:
All TAFE NSW learners enrolled in mainstream courses who need support to
meet their course and learning goals can enrol into course 9999 Learner
Support. The course is fee exempt and students will co-enrol into the
course and their mainstream course. Students needing support can re-enrol
in the course as needed in different semesters/years/courses.
