Unit: Resilient tiles

LMFFL2302A: Install resilient resilient tiles using standard installation practices


Practical Demonstration Checklist

Your trainer may ask you to keep a log book or diary of the work you do on-the-job that relates to the practical components of this unit. This will help them to determine when you've had sufficient hands-on practice in these tasks to undertake the assessment events.

When you're ready to be assessed, your assessor will ask you to complete a range of practical demonstrations, including at least one example of each of the following:

  • homogeneous resilient tile installation using a single direction pattern

  • heterogeneous resilient tile installation using a single direction pattern.

In each case, you will need to install the appropriate trims and accessories as part of the demonstration. The subfloor surface will either be timber or concrete.

As part of the demonstrations, you will be asked to use of the following tools:

  • utility knife and napping shears

  • straight edge, square, chalk-line, tape measure

  • hammer, hacksaw

  • notched trowel.

Other tools may also include:

  • roller

  • airless spray gun

  • tile scrubber

  • knee kicker.

In addition to assessing your ability to physically install resilient tiles, your assessor will also be checking that you can:

  • follow all work, health and safety requirements and environmental care procedures

  • correctly interpret company documents and work instructions

  • complete work records

  • communicate and work effectively with customers and other workers

  • prevent damage to goods, equipment and products

  • work productively and produce a high quality job

  • clean up, recycle and dispose of waste products correctly

  • modify activities and techniques used to suit different sites and working conditions.

Make sure you talk to your trainer or supervisor about any of the details you don't understand, or aren't ready to demonstrate, before the assessment events are organised. This will give you time to get the hang of the tasks you'll need to perform, so that you'll feel more confident when the time comes to be assessed.
