Application

This unit of competency describes the skills and knowledge required to work effectively with a broad range of individuals and teams within the timber manufacturing products sector. It includes a sound understanding of the organisations’ operations work practices and processes of timber systems design.

The unit applies to individuals who contribute to and provide quality product service to clients in a timber production or design setting. They use their own judgment to deal with predictable and unpredictable problems and decide on solutions to a range of problems during the timber design process.

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