Unit of competency

Modification History

Release 1.

Supersedes and equivalent to CPCCCO3049A Apply and finish sprayed concrete.

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 apply and finish pre-mixed spray concrete to a variety of surfaces to develop retaining structures.

It includes applying and finishing sprayed concrete to surfaces where conventional concreting methods cannot be applied, including barrel vaulting, caissons, canal linings, diaphragm walls, drainage channels, irrigation systems, piled wall facings, reservoirs, shell roofs and domes, silo structures, swimming pools, tunnel linings, walls and water towers.

It applies to concreters working as members of a team with at least a moderate degree of autonomy. They would be expected to complete routine activities without close supervision.

Licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements apply to this unit of competency in all states and territories except Tasmania. Relevant state and territory regulatory authorities should be consulted to confirm these requirements.
