Learning Outcomes

Scenario
You are currently employed as an ICT technician for Sefton Council. The network manager has
requested that you train the newly appointed junior technician on the installation and upgrade of
software. You have already started to create a training manual as well as give demonstrations to the
junior in order to complete the training.
Tasks
    1. Demonstrate to the junior (your observer) an installation and upgrade.
              You should follow the steps you defined in Assignment 2.
              You will be observed installing and upgrading software onto a standalone PC. During
               your installation you will be expected to explain the steps you are taking and answer any
               questions given by the observer.
              At the start of you observation you will be need to demonstrate the preparation for your
               integrity checks on the data provided.
              Following your installation and upgrade of software, you will be asked to carry out the
               data integrity checks on the data provided.
                                                                                                (P4, P5)
   2. Downgrade the software you have just upgraded to the previous version.
                                                                                                   (M4)
   3. Add a section to the training manual that describes the user acceptance procedure. Include a
      user acceptance checklist and sign-off form.
                                                                                                       (P6)
   4. Add a section to the training manual that justifies why it was important to follow the installation
      checklist from assignment 2 in installing and upgrading the software. You should explain why it
      was necessary to:
              Carry out work in a logical order
              Perform integrity checks
              Plan for backout
                                                                                                       (D1)
   5. Finally, end the training manual by writing a section that evaluates the risks involved in the
      installation or upgrade of software and explain how risks could be minimised.
                                                                                                       (D2)
