MSFKB3002 - Determine requirements for installation of cabinets

    Unit code: MSFKB3002 | Study level: TAFE


    This unit of competency covers assessing a site, including walls, floors, appliances, services and other structural components, to determine implications and modifications required for location and installation of cabinets. 

    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 kitchen and bathroom 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).
