Unit of competency

Modification History

Release 1

This version first released with CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package Release 5.0.

New unit.

Application

This unit specifies the skills and knowledge required to install subsoil drainage to variously shaped in-ground swimming pools and spas. It includes preparing and installing the drainage during excavation.

This reflects the role of those who are responsible for diverting subsoil water away from the swimming pool and spa construction site. It applies to a range of contexts:

  • private swimming pools
  • public swimming pools, including:
  • hydrotherapy and therapeutic exercise pools
  • wading and receiving pools associated with water slides
  • wave pools.

This unit is suitable for those using specialised knowledge to complete routine and non-routine tasks, and their own judgement to deal with predictable and sometimes unpredictable problems.

No licensing or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
