Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1.

Replaces superseded equivalent CPPPMT3042A Install physical termite barriers.

This version first released with CPP Property Services Training Package Version 2.

Application

This unit of competency specifies the outcomes required to install physical termite management systems, including management systems that combine physical and chemical characteristics. The unit covers the ability to assess methods of construction of different premises, as well as techniques required to prevent termites gaining concealed access to a completed construction.

The unit covers applying a thorough understanding of client requirements and company information in order to install the systems. The selection of appropriate equipment, materials and methods is essential for performing the task safely and efficiently. These work functions would be carried out according to company guidelines and statutory requirements.

The unit supports pest management technicians responsible for applying physical termite management systems in both pre- and post-construction stages, in domestic, commercial and industrial buildings.

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