There are three sections in this unit:
- Manufactured boards
- Cutting and edging
- Assembling the cabinet.
Each section contains an Overview, an Assignment, and Lessons which cover the content material. The links to these pages will appear in the side menu bar when you select the main link for that section.
Your final assessment of competency in this unit will include various practical demonstrations. Their purpose is to assess your ability to fabricate kitchen or bathroom cabinets in a workshop. To help you get ready for these hands-on assessment activities, have a look at the Practical demonstration checklist by clicking on the link below:
The checklist sets out the sorts of things your trainer will be looking for when you undertake the practical demonstrations. Make sure you talk to your trainer or supervisor about any of the details that you don't understand, or aren't ready to demonstrate, before the assessment event is organised. This will give you time to get the hang of the tasks you will need to perform, so that you'll feel more confident when the time comes to be assessed. When you are able to tick all of the YES boxes in the checklist you will be ready to carry out the practical demonstration component of this unit.
