Project: Shopfitting

Stage 1


While traditional construction skills remain at the core of shopfitting, the profession increasingly requires a wider range of skills and knowledge.

Shopfitters need to make use of rapidly evolving technology, including computer-controlled component manufacture and computer-aided drafting and design.

Shopfitting requires more than just a purely utilitarian approach to the installation of counters, displays, shelves, lighting and other fixtures. Rising competition, including from online businesses, is driving retail and service industries to develop commercial spaces not just for efficient delivery of goods and services but also to enhance customer experience and engagement.  

The regulatory environment has changed. Shopfitters need to be familiar with the new National Construction Code and with stronger regulations for disability access and customer and worker health and safety.

This changing environment means that the national qualification and units of competency that support shopfitting need to be reviewed. Artibus Innovation has been commissioned to manage this project under the direction of the Construction, Plumbing and Services IRC.

We are seeking input from employers, workers, regulators, trainers and industry bodies to help us review the Certificate III in Shopfitting. We want your advice on the structure of this qualification. Are the core and elective units appropriate? Should any be added or removed?

We'd also like your feedback on the content within each unit of competency. Units that are native to this qualification (CPCCSH3001–3010) need to be reviewed and updated to better cover the skills and knowledge required by industry in the 2020s (the latest drafts are available here). Units that have been imported from other qualifications need to be assessed as to whether they still fit the needs of this qualification.

Join the discussion


On behalf of the Construction, Plumbing and Services Industry Reference Committee, Artibus Innovation invites you to attend the following workshops.

These workshops are to review the Certificate III in Shopfitting.

We are seeking input from employers, workers, regulators, trainers and industry bodies to help us review the CPCCSH3001 - 3010 transitioned units of competency within the Certificate III in Shopfitting. We want your advice on the structure of this qualification.

The aim of the review is to update the qualification to meet industry needs and align the licensing requirements across jurisdictions and streamline through removal of obsolete, duplicate, superfluous units of competency.

You can download the units at the bottom of this page.
