Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1.

Supersedes and equivalent to CPCCCA2003A Erect and dismantle formwork for footings and slabs on ground.

The unit of competency was updated to the Standards for Training Packages 2012.

This version first released with CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package Version 4.0.

Application

This unit of competency specifies the skills and knowledge required to erect and dismantle formwork for basic slabs on ground, rebates to slabs on ground and steps to strip footings in residential and commercial sites.

It includes:

  • establishing required levels on site
  • constructing formwork using boxing materials such as timber, metal, masonry, fibre cement sheeting or reconstituted timber products
  • using fixings to contain wet poured concrete until it is completely cured
  • stripping the formwork and preparing and storing it for re-use.

This unit is designed for those working as a member of a team safely erecting and dismantling formwork for footings and slabs on ground.

It applies to workers in the construction industry. It involves working under supervision in a team environment.

No licensing, legislative, or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
