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.


This unit of competency specifies the outcomes required to install prefabricated shopfitting units, including cabinets, counters, showcases, wall units and workstations. It covers receiving and checking the shopfitting units, checking and preparing the installation positions, and fixing the units in place, including assembling large units delivered to the work site in sections.

The unit supports shopfitters responsible for installing internal shopfitting units. It applies to work completed on site concurrently with other shopfitting work that must be scheduled to accommodate both client requirements, where the shop is operational, and the requirements of other shopfitters and associated contractors.

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