Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1

This unit first released with CPP Property Services Training Package Release 14.0.

Supersedes and is equivalent to CPPACC8002A Research and analyse access solutions for the built environment.

Unit updated to meet the Standards for Training Packages 2012.

Application

This unit of competency specifies the skills and knowledge required to research and analyse a broad range of complex and highly specialised information in order to give effective advice and influence design solutions that provide lawful access and inclusive use of the built environment for all people, including those with disability. It includes applying ergonomics and human geometry of people with disability to access provision; analysing built environment issues with positive and negative impacts on people with mobility, sensory and cognitive impairments; and an in-depth understanding of the range of design solutions available and how they may be applied to the provision of access.

This unit is for experienced access consultants who apply broad and coherent theoretical and technical knowledge and highly specialised skills, and deal with sometimes complex and unpredictable contingencies in the provision of access consulting services.

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