Qualification Description

This qualification reflects the role of flooring technicians who install floors or flooring materials in residential or commercial premises. Floors and flooring materials may be carpet, timber, vinyl, resilient, resin or concrete.

They use discretion and judgement to adapt and transfer their skills and knowledge to different job needs and take responsibility for their own work.

In some states and territories, there may be licensing requirements for the installation of timber floors, resin floors and/or polished concrete in some jurisdictions. Other licensing or regulatory requirements may apply to the use of some units in this qualification in some jurisdictions. Local regulations should be checked for details.
