Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1

This version first released with CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package Release 5.0.

Supersedes and equivalent to CPCCCM2004A Handle construction materials. Updated to meet the Standards for Training Packages 2012.

Application

This unit of competency specifies the skills and knowledge required to safely handle and store commonly used construction materials manually or in preparation for mechanical handling.

The unit is suitable for those with basic skills and knowledge undertaking routine work tasks under the direction of more experienced workers.
