Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1. Supersedes and is not equivalent to MSFGG2009 Fabricate and assemble frames, and, MSFGG3020 Use static machines for aluminium and unplasticised polyvinyl chloride (uPVC) fabrication.

Application

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to identify work requirements, prepare tools and materials, and cut and process materials for glazing products. Materials may be aluminium, steel, timber or unplasticised polyvinyl chloride (uPVC).

This unit applies to individuals cutting and processing materials in accordance with pre-determined work orders and plans.

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 glass and glazing work. Access to construction sites requires certification of general induction training specified by the National Code of Practice for Induction for Construction Work (ASCC 2007).
