Application

This unit of competency describes the skills and knowledge required to position and connect panelised or modular prefabricated timber building systems safely and correctly during on-site installation.

The unit applies to individuals who work in the occupational area of installing prefabricated timber building structures. These include construction workers, carpenters or joiners and site supervisors. They generally work under broad or limited direction to complete routine activities related to their own work, and take responsibility for their work.

In order to undertake this unit, individuals must have a relevant trade qualification or equivalent.

All work must be carried out to comply with workplace procedures, according to state/territory health and safety regulations, legislation and standards that apply to the workplace.

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

Performance Evidence

An individual demonstrating competency in this unit must satisfy all of the elements and performance criteria of this unit. There must be evidence that, on at least three occasions, the individual has installed prefabricated timber building systems on-site, for two or more panelised or modular prefabricated timber building system types, including:

  • cross-laminated timber floor and wall systems
  • post and beam systems (Glulam, laminated veneer lumber)
  • panelised floor cassette systems
  • panelised wall systems (including cladding, insulation, windows or doors)
