The Furnishing IRC, supported by IBSA Manufacturing, is upgrading flooring, glass and glazing qualifications and units of competency within the MSF Furnishing Training Package. 

Public consultation on the draft Flooring, Glass and Glazing Case for Change is now closed. Thank you to all industry expert stakeholders who provided feedback to help shape the document.

It is now being prepared by IBSA for approval by the Furnishing IRC and is scheduled to be submitted to the AISC in October 2021.

Why we are reviewing it

The rationale for updating the training products is to investigate an improved structure for flooring, glass and glazing qualifications. 

What we are reviewing  

The draft Case for Change proposes: 

  • Upgrading two qualifications:  
    • MSF30818 Certificate III in Flooring Technology  
    • MSF40418 Certificate IV in Glass and Glazing   
  • Upgrading 72 units of competency  
  • Developing one new unit of competency 
  • Developing three new skill sets
