Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1. Supersedes:

  • LMTCL2003B Identify fibres and fabrics
  • LMTTX2001B Identify fibres, yarns and textile materials and their uses in textile production

Application

This unit of competency covers the skills and knowledge required to identify fibres, yarns, fabrics and textile materials and how they are used in the construction of garments and accessories and in textile production processes.

The unit of competency applies to a range of natural and synthetic materials which may be used for knitted, woven, spun, tufted or non-woven products. While the unit relates to a comprehensive coverage of textile, clothing and footwear (TCF) materials, evidence may be contextualised to a sector or workplace.

The unit of competency applies to work conducted in all clothing design, production and merchandising, and textile production and finishing processes using fibres, yarns and textile materials.

This unit of competency is applicable to all sectors of the TCF industry.

Work may be conducted in small to large scale enterprises and may involve individual and team related activities.

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