For the kitchen and bathroom installer, this little saying is a reminder that a smooth and efficient installation job doesn't just happen by accident.

It is the product of careful planning, and the ability to take note of all of the issues that are likely to have an impact on the work to be done.

This unit is all about how to properly prepare for an on-site installation.

It will cover the processes of getting everything organised to go out to the jobsite, and what to do once you get there.

There are two sections in this unit:

  1. Organising items

  2. Going to the site

Each section contains an overview, an assignment, and several lessons. The links to these pages will appear in the side menu bar when you select the main link for that section.

Practical demonstration

Your final assessment of competency in this unit will include demonstrations of your ability to put your knowledge into practice and physically carry out the process of preparing for cabinet installations. 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.
