MSF31113 Certificate III in Cabinet Making
Course Code and Name:
MSF31113 Certificate III in Cabinet Making
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.
There are two pathways offered within the Certificate III in Cabinet Making targeting the skill requirements of free-standing furniture makers and kitchen and bathroom cabinet makers and installers.
Qualification descriptors for this qualification will depend on the pathway selection. Those completing Pathway 1 will achieve a MSF31113 Certificate III in Cabinet Making (Furniture) and those completing Pathway 2 will achieve a MSF31113 Certificate III in Cabinet Making (Kitchens and Bathrooms) .
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.
To achieve this qualification you must demonstrate competency in 28 units of competency. This is comprised of 6 core units and 22 elective units.
Electives must be chosen as follows:
▪ a minimum of 1 from Group A
▪ a minimum of 8 from Groups B and D for Pathway 1 - Furniture
▪ a minimum of 8 from Groups C and D for Pathway 2 - Kitchens and Bathrooms
▪ a minimum of 8 from Group E
▪ up to 5 relevant units from units not already selected from Groups A to E, or units available in this Training Package or other endorsed Training Packages and accredited courses. Those units must be aligned at Certificate II level (maximum 1 unit), Certificate III level (maximum 5 units) or Certificate IV level (maximum 1 unit). Units selected from other Training Packages and accredited courses via Group F must be relevant to the qualification outcome and not duplicate units available within this qualification.
