PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
This unit standard is for people who work, or intend to work in a Yacht and Boat Building environment where marine joinery components are manufactured and installed.

This unit standard consolidates the learning and skill developed in "Demonstrate a practical understanding of marine joinery" and further develops this in the application to more complex processes and techniques. The successful learner will demonstrate proficiency in the use of a broad range of woodworking tools, power tools and machinery, and be competent in many of the joinery related tasks required for fitting out different types of yacht and boat.

    PROVIDERS CURRENTLY ACCREDITED TO OFFER THIS UNIT STANDARD: 
    This information shows the current accreditations (i.e. those not past their accreditation end dates), and is the most complete record available to SAQA as of today. Some Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionaries have a lag in their recording systems for provider accreditation, in turn leading to a lag in notifying SAQA of all the providers that they have accredited to offer qualifications and unit standards, as well as any extensions to accreditation end dates. The relevant Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionary should be notified if a record appears to be missing from here.
