This unit standard does not replace any other unit standard and is not replaced by any other unit standard. 

PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
Learners who are assessed as competent against this unit standard will be able to assemble and install a range of purpose-made wood components for shopfitting purposes in accordance with working drawing specifications, National Building Regulations and safety legislation ensuring that client requirements for cost-effective, functional and quality products are met within the prescribed timeframes.

This competence complements the other carpentry competencies and contributes to the development of a professional community of Carpentry practitioners, who are able to use Science and Technology responsibly and cost-effectively. It should result in improved quality and service delivery in Carpentry. The contribution to The National Skills Development Strategy is the key developmental interface between learners and new competencies to be achieved.
