Description

This qualification describes the skills and knowledge required to perform design of furniture and the application of the design into a finished furniture product. This qualification is streamed to reflect two primary occupational outcomes in the areas of:

1. Fine furniture making - with a focus on skills required to design and produce individual fine furniture for display or custom production.

2. Furniture design - with a focus on skills required to design furniture for volume production.

Job roles /employment outcomes 

The LMF40508 Certificate IV in Furniture Design and Technology reflects vocational outcomes in fine furniture making or furniture design with a broad range of skilled applications including requirements to evaluate and analyse current practices, develop new criteria and procedures for performing current practices, and provision of some leadership and guidance to others in the application and planning of the skills

Application 

This qualification is typically used to develop skills and a breadth, depth and complexity of knowledge in a range of furniture making and design. The work would cover a broad range of varied activities or applications in a wide variety of contexts, most of which are complex and non-routine. Leadership and guidance would be involved when organising self and others as well as contributing to technical solutions of a non-routine or contingency nature.

Pathways into the qualification 

This qualification may be accessed by direct entry. Credit can be granted towards this qualification by those who have completed LMF30302 Certificate III in Furniture Making or other relevant qualifications or achieved equivalent industry experience.

Pathways from the qualification 

Further training pathways from this qualification may include LMF50202 Diploma of Furnishing Technology, LMF50508 Diploma of Furniture Design and Technology and relevant supervisory, management or competitive manufacturing qualifications.

Licensing considerations 

There are no specific licences that relate to this qualification. However, depending on the jurisdiction, licensing or regulatory requirements may apply to the use of some units in this qualification. Local regulations should be checked for details.
