This qualification describes the skills and knowledge required to design kitchens, bathrooms and interior spaces to meet client requirements. It targets those designing kitchens, bathrooms and other interior spaces that typically feature built-in cabinetry and furniture. Employment outcomes include small business operators in kitchen and bathroom design or product supply, and specialist design personnel. Work involves a broad range of skilled applications, including requirements to evaluate and analyse current practices, develop new criteria and procedures for performing current practices, and provision of some leadership and guidance to others in the application and planning of the skills.

This qualification is typically used to develop specialist kitchen and bathroom design skills. However, units in the qualification also support the application of design skills to other interior spaces. It is suitable for those working in the kitchens and bathroom industries, or with furnishing, joinery or cabinet making skills, in order to prepare them for providing a design service in these industries.

Work may require access to construction sites and require construction induction training and certification covered by the unit CPCCOHS1001A Work safely in the construction industry. Local regulations should also be checked for requirements.
