Foundation Skills

This section describes those required skills (reading, writing, oral communication and numeracy) that are essential to workplace performance in this unit of competency.

Foundation skills essential to performance are explicit in the performance criteria of this unit of competency.

Range of Conditions

This field allows for different work environments and conditions that may affect performance. Essential operating conditions that may be present (depending on the work situation, needs of the candidate, accessibility of the item, and local industry and regional contexts) are included.

PPE includes one (1) or more of the following: 

  • safety glasses
  • face and head protection
  • hard hats
  • protective footwear
  • protective clothing
  • respiratory protection
  • ear protection
  • gloves

Resources include one (1) or more of the following: 

  • briefing or discussions with appropriate personnel
  • customer brief
  • manufacture catalogues
  • internet sites

Kitchen appliances and components include four (4) or more of the following: 

  • sinks
  • oven/cooktops
  • refrigerators
  • microwave ovens
  • range hoods
  • splashbacks
  • cabinets
  • benchtops

Bathroom components include four (4) or more of the following: 

  • baths
  • spas
  • showers
  • toilets/bidets
  • basins
  • vanities
  • cabinets
  • mirrors
  • exhaust fans

Functional zones and work flow include one (1) or more of the following:

Performance Evidence

Evidence required to demonstrate competence in this unit must be relevant to and satisfy the requirements of the elements and performance criteria and include:

  • following work instructions, procedures and safe work practices
  • identifying and interpreting client brief, project sheets, specifications and other relevant information in researching and drawing a basic kitchen or bathroom design
  • using manufacturer catalogues and computer operations for internet access and searches
  • interpreting the principles of the ‘work triangle’ and how it is applied in kitchen design

OR

  • interpreting the principal of functional zones and traffic flows in a bathroom.
  • giving examples of good and bad designs of a ‘work triangle’ or bathroom zones
  • producing a drawing of the following:
  • a kitchen with at least six (6) cabinets; or
  • a basic bathroom with a minimum of four (4) components
  • confirming drawing fits client requirements and brief with appropriate personnel
  • modifying drawing as required
