This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to install and disassemble audio equipment for a range of live performance and entertainment productions.
It applies to individuals who work collaboratively as part of a production team to install, align, test and disassemble audio equipment for playback, mixing and recording purposes.
The model Work Health and Safety (WHS) Regulations list the work that requires a high risk work licence, including dogging and rigging. Completion of the following units is required for certification at basic, intermediate and advanced levels:
- CPCCLDG3001A Licence to perform dogging;
- CPCCLRG3001A Licence to perform rigging basic level;
- CPCCLRG3002A Licence to perform rigging intermediate level;
- CPCCLRG4001A Licence to perform rigging advanced level.
Sets and staging for some productions may fall within the definition of construction work. Under section 274 of the WHS Act, it is a requirement of the approved Code of Practice for Construction Work that any person entering a construction site must successfully complete general construction induction training through a Registered Training Organisation. Completion of the unit CPCCOHS1001A Work safely in the construction industry fulfils this requirement.
