Context of and specific resources for assessment 

  • The application of competency is to be assessed in the workplace or realistically simulated workplace
  • Assessment is to occur under standard and authorised work practices, safety requirements and environmental constraints
  • Assessment of essential underpinning knowledge, other than confirmatory questions, will usually be conducted in an off-site context
  • Assessment is to comply with relevant regulatory or Australian Standards requirements
  • The following resources should be made available:
  • workplace location or simulated workplace
  • information resources on kitchen and bathroom projects

Method of assessment 

  • Assessment must satisfy the endorsed assessment guidelines of the Furnishing Industry Training Package
