Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1.

This version first released with CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package Version 2.

New unit of competency.

Application

This unit of competency specifies the outcomes required to identify work site details and scope of work requirements from construction plans, drawings and specifications, and to apply that information to the initial scheduling and preparation for the work. Work tasks may relate to different areas of work and can include shopfitting, carpentry, construction and painting.

The unit supports construction workers at the early stages of work when the first site visits are made and work requirements are clarified with the client or project manager. It applies to residential and commercial construction projects.
