Skillbuild Training offers a ‘fast track’ Open Registration course which enables participants to complete a lot of the theory work themselves before attending a 3 day ‘face to face’ session with our Trainer. We also deliver a 5 day Combined Endorsements Course. The information below is from the Australian Communication and Media Authority website and describes the different categories of licensing for cablers.


How to become a registered cabler

All cabling work, including telephone, data, fire and security alarm systems cabling, that connects or is intended to connect with the telecommunications network must be performed by a registered cabler, or under the direct supervision of a registered cabler. 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/ACIF S009), which ensure safety to consumers, cablers and the network.

To become a registered cabler you will need to undertake the requisite training course for the type of cabling registration that you are seeking – Open, Restricted or Lift registration.

There are three types of registration – Open, Restricted or Lift. If you wish to work in both commercial and domestic premises you will require an Open registration. However, if you only want to work in domestic premises you will only require a Restricted registration. Lift registrations are for telecommunications cabling in lifts or elevators.

More information is available from the ACMA brochure So you want to be a registered cabler? (Word [.docx] 157 kb or PDF 689 kb). Hard copies of this brochure are available by calling 1300 850 115.

Competency requirements and training options

Once you have decided which registration type you require (Open, Restricted or Lift), you can then undertake the appropriate training which will meet the mandatory competency requirements for registration. The training options for each registration type are outlined in the ACMA publication: Pathways to ACMA Cabling Provider Rules, cabler registration (Word [.docx] 898 kb or PDF 710 kb).
