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 Replaces superseded non-equivalent CPCCSH2001A Prepare surfaces and CPCCSH3006A Apply finishes.

Application

This unit of competency specifies the outcomes required to prepare new and previously coated shopfittings and surfaces and apply stains, lacquers, paint or sealer to create the required finish. It covers confirming job requirements, preparing tools and materials, and completing work to client and workplace requirements.

The unit supports shopfitters who prepare surfaces of shop doors, windows, walls, ceilings, partitions and shopfittings; and then apply a range of liquid finishes.

It applies to some work which may be carried out off site on units being fabricated for installation and other work completed on site concurrently with other shopfitting work. The work must be scheduled to accommodate both client requirements, where the shop is operational, and the requirements of other shopfitters and associated contractors.

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