Project: Wall and Ceiling Lining

Stage 4

On behalf of the Construction, Plumbing and Services IRC, Artibus Innovation has reviewed and developed the CPC3XX19 Certificate III in Wall and Ceiling Lining qualification and 30 units of competency.

The Construction, Plumbing and Services IRC is updating the Building Completion Service qualifications in the CPC training package to align with key drivers for change (ie, new technologies, digitisation, new work practices, environmental regulations and new WHS requirements), current vocational outcomes, and transition to the Standards for Training Packages 2012.

The building completion services sectors involve “finishing” work such as plastering, carpentry, tiling and painting and decorating. Typically, businesses operate in local or specialised niche markets with few businesses operating in more than one state or territory. Across these sectors, licensing requirements vary depending on the type of work.

The qualifications in the scope of this project are meeting the needs of the skill shortage areas including: roof, wall and floor tilers, and solid and fibrous plasterers. The design of qualifications will support articulation and strengthen cross sector pathways to support occupational mobility.

A Technical Advisory Group (TAG) has been established to provide key input on the:

  • suitability of packaging
  • inclusion of skill sets
  • unit relevancy and content.
