1 EDEXCEL LEVEL 2 BTEC FIRST DIPLOMA FOR ICT PRACTITIONERS Unit 12: Installing Hardware Components
2 UNIT DESCRIPTIONThis unit covers the skills and knowledge required to replace, upgrade or install computer hardware components.First you’ll need to get preparedThen you’ll need to check the hardware is compatible.2
3 UNIT DESCRIPTIONYou 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.
4 LEARNING OUTCOMES On completion of this unit a learner should: Understand the reasons for and implications of the installation of hardware componentsUnderstand risks involved and precautions needed when installing hardware componentsBe able to install and test hardware componentsKnow the procedures required on completion of an installation or upgrade.
5 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 implicationsP2 identify potential health and safety risks prior to the installation of hardware componentsP3 prepare for specified installationsP4 install hardware components safely and test functionalityP5 follow required procedures to document installation.M1 describe the implications of the hardware component installations they have carried outM2 install a hardware component that requires associated software and configure to meet the needs of an end userM3 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 oneD2 analyse the potential problems which may occur during the installation of hardware components and suggest possible solutions.
