Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1. New unit of competency.

Application

This unit of competency describes the skills and knowledge required to identify job requirements and then select, fit and install low-voltage technology, automation and intelligent management systems in furnishing products. The unit involves taking measurements to support the accurate fit of the items; and correctly using and applying adhesives and concealment methods suited to the installation design, product being installed, and furnishing product material. It also involves understanding quality and compliance indicators and requirements so that the installation complies with industry-accepted standards.

This unit applies to unlicensed installers working in all sectors of the furnishing industry using low voltage (24 volts or less) technology, automation, or intelligent management systems. The furnishing products involved are diverse, and may include kitchen and bathroom cabinetry, fitted furniture and window furnishings. The items installed are also diverse and may include docking stations, and sound and visual devices.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication. Where installation involves wiring to be connected to mains power, electrical work must be completed by a qualified licensed electrician

Pre-requisite Unit

Not applicable.

Unit Sector
