Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1.

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

Revised unit of competency. Replaces superseded non-equivalent CPCCSI2007A Apply fasteners and fixings.

Application

This unit of competency specifies the outcomes required to erect and install signs to surfaces and structures, safely and according to client requirements.

The unit supports installers of signs working in a range of settings who must ensure appropriate permits are in place prior to erecting a sign, that the surface is suitable for installing the sign, and that appropriate fasteners and fixings have been selected for the task.

Licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements apply to this unit in some States. Relevant state and territory regulatory authorities should be consulted to confirm those requirements.
