Cert III in Cabinet Making

Course Code: MSF31113

This qualification covers the skills and knowledge required to perform a range of skills at trade-level for those working in furniture making and those involved in the manufacture and installation of fitted furniture typically in a kitchen, bathroom and related context. Installation skills may be applied to new or renovation work. The work is in a defined range of skilled operations, usually within a range of broader related activities involving known routines, methods and procedures, where some discretion and judgement is required in the selection of equipment, services or contingency measures and within known time constraints.

Depending on the state and territory where work is undertaken licensing may relate to this qualification where the candidate is required to work on-site assisting in kitchen and bathroom installation. The licensing requirement will usually involve construction induction training. Where licensing is required the unit CPCCOHS1001A Work safely in the construction industry should be selected. If no licensing requirement exists e.g. where all work will be off-site then the unit MSAPMOHS200A Work safely should be selected.
