CPCCCA3005 - Construct ceiling frames

    Unit code: CPCCCA3005 | Study level: TAFE
    CPCCWHS2001 - Apply WHS requirements, policies and procedures in the construction industry
    (Or equivalent to be determined by unit coordinator)


    This unit of competency specifies the skills and knowledge required to plan, prepare, set-out, construct and erect timber ceiling frames to accommodate ceiling joists, hanging beams, strutting beams, combined hanging/strutting beams, and combined strutting/counter beams, meeting all relevant requirements of the National Construction Code (NCC), Australian Standards, work health and safety (WHS), and Commonwealth and state or territory legislation.
    The unit includes selection of members and setting out of ceiling frames in conjunction with roof members.
    Completion of the general construction induction training program specified by the model Code of Practice for Construction Work is required for any person who is to carry out construction work. Achievement of CPCCWHS1001Prepare to work safely in the construction industry meets this requirement.
