Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1. New unit

Application

This unit specifies the competency required to apply domestic surface coatings by hand using a range of application methods.

It is designed for use in a pre-employment skills introduction program and is suitable for use in institutional-based vocational programs. Skills development will take place under direct supervision.

This unit is not to be used in a traineeship or apprenticeship training program or associated qualifications. It is only to be used in pre-employment programs and carries no credit towards apprenticeship/trade and other qualification types in manufacturing and furnishings.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
