Description

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

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

Job roles /employment outcomes 

The LMF50508 Diploma of Furniture Design and Technology reflects vocational outcomes for those performing design of furniture and has two streams that should be selected on the basis of required occupational outcome.

  • Stream 1: Fine Furniture Making - units for this stream are included in Groups A and C
  • Stream 2: Furniture Design - units for this stream are included in Groups A and D

The selection of units for each of each stream is determined by the packaging rules below.

Work involves self-directed application of knowledge and skills, with substantial depth in some areas where judgement is required in planning and selecting appropriate equipment, services and techniques for self and others.

Application 

This qualification is typically used to develop a breadth, depth and complexity of skills and knowledge covering furnishing design and technology plus initiation of alternative approaches to skills or knowledge application across a broad range of technical and/or management requirements, evaluation and co-ordination. Work would involve participation in development of strategic initiatives, as well as personal responsibility and autonomy in performing complex technical operations or organising others. It may include participation in teams, including teams concerned with planning and evaluation functions and could involve group or team coordination.

Pathways into the qualification 

This qualification may be accessed by direct entry. Credit can be granted towards this qualification by those who have completed the LMF40508 Certificate IV in Furniture Design and Technology or achieved equivalent industry experience.

Pathways from the qualification 

Further training pathways from this qualification may include LMF60308 Advanced Diploma of Furniture Design and Technology and relevant 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.
