Everything comes together when the actual installation begins.

All the work that's gone into designing the room, assessing conditions, measuring up, manufacturing cabinets, and organising the supporting tradespeople, is finally on full show as the room takes shape and the design becomes a reality.

In this unit we'll cover the main methods used to install cabinets and components on-site.

We'll also look at some of the design considerations relating to the installation of appliances.

And we'll discuss the process of finishing off the job, carrying out a final inspection and handing it over to the client.

Practical demonstration

Your final assessment of competency in this unit will include various practical demonstrations. Their purpose is to assess your ability to physically carry out the process of installing cabinets and components on-site. 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:

Practical demonstration checklist

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.
