EDEXCEL LEVEL 2 BTEC FIRST DIPLOMA FOR ICT PRACTITIONERS Unit 12: Installing Hardware Components
UNIT DESCRIPTION This unit covers the skills and knowledge required to replace, upgrade or install computer hardware components. First you’ll need to get prepared Then you’ll need to check the hardware is compatible.
UNIT DESCRIPTION You will not only perform actual upgrades, you will learn how to properly record the upgrades and complete documentation. This unit has a considerable amount of practical content.
LEARNING OUTCOMES On completion of this unit a learner should: 1.Understand the reasons for and implications of the installation of hardware components 2.Understand risks involved and precautions needed when installing hardware components 3.Be able to install and test hardware components 4.Know the procedures required on completion of an installation or upgrade.
GRADING GRID Grading criteria To achieve a pass grade the evidence must show that the learner is able to: To achieve a merit grade the evidence must show that, in addition to the pass criteria, the learner is able to: To achieve a distinction grade the evidence must show that, in addition to the pass and merit criteria, the learner is able to: P1 describe, using examples, reasons why hardware systems may require the installation of new hardware components and note potential implications P2 identify potential health and safety risks prior to the installation of hardware components P3 prepare for specified installations P4 install hardware components safely and test functionality P5 follow required procedures to document installation. M1 describe the implications of the hardware component installations they have carried out M2 install a hardware component that requires associated software and configure to meet the needs of an end user M3 explain the stages of an installation process. D1 identify, using examples, the risks to an organisation arising from the installation of new hardware components and explain ways of minimising each one D2 analyse the potential problems which may occur during the installation of hardware components and suggest possible solutions.
