This is an opportunity to acquire the skills necessary to undertake one of two types of technician roles that can service Australia’s expanding telecommunications network. 

One role focuses on maintaining Telstra’s existing copper network, while the other is involved with connecting nbn™ services to residential and commercial consumers.


TECHNICAL TRAINING

There are two different technical training programs outlined below, and successful candidates will be paid to undertake the relevant training. Training is delivered face-to-face at training centres around the country.

Unconditioned Local Loop Service (ULL) – 6 week training program

A ULL trained Telecommunications Technician will install or maintain the copper wiring from the Telstra exchange to residential or commercial premises. This enables customers to access data services including DSL and voice services.

Operate and Maintain Master Agreements (OMMA) – 12 week training program

An OMMA Technician will be involved in activating homes and businesses, along with ongoing maintenance, to help ensure access to reliable and fast broadband as part of the nbn™ roll out.


AFTER THE TRAINING

At the end of the training program, and once you are deemed competent, you may be offered the opportunity to:

  • establish your own company and provide subcontracting services to ISG Management Pty Ltd trading as Tandem Management (Tandem) as an independent business pursuant to an I&M Subcontractor Agreement with Tandem. You should obtain your own legal advice before signing;  or
  • work as an employee of an existing Tandem subcontractor.

Visit the Tandem website for further details about post training options and suggestions about where to obtain help in relation to setting up your business. 


TRAINING LOCATIONS

There are ULL and OMMA training and subcontracting opportunities in metropolitan centres and regional areas around Australia. The advertised locations are for local residents who know the area well, and will be servicing the network in and around their town or city.
