Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1. Supersedes and is equivalent to MSFFL2026 Nail strip timber flooring.

Application

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to use top-nailing or secret nailing methods when installing tongue and groove strip timber flooring onto plywood underlay and battens over joists, concrete or a subfloor to either raise a floor or correct the level of a floor

Timber flooring includes timber plywood underlay manufactured under a JAS-ANZ accredited product certification scheme meeting the internationally recognised IS0 Type 5 system for product reliability to AS/NZS 2269.0:2012 Plywood - Structural - Specifications

This unit applies to flooring technicians working in accordance with pre-determined work orders.

Licensing, legislative or certification requirements may apply to this unit and relevant state/territory and local government agencies should be consulted to determine any necessary certification or licensing for undertaking flooring work. Industry standards and codes of practice within Australia must also be applied. Access to construction sites requires certification of general induction training specified by the National Code of Practice for Induction for Construction Work (ASCC 2007).
