details.

The CPC40110 Certificate IV in Building and Construction (Building) qualification is a great step forward for anyone looking to grow their career or business within the residential and commercial building and construction sector. Completion of this nationally accredited qualification will provide you with the knowledge and validation to move towards becoming a registered builder (in most Australian states) and provide you with the accreditation to potentially start your own business, run multiple building sites under your licence or assist you with scaling your current business through the ability to quote and take on your own low-rise residential projects.

Low-rise construction is one of the leading growth sectors in Australia and has been for many years. In this program, you’ll learn how to plan building construction work, apply structural principles and supervise on-site construction works. You’ll learn how to apply building codes and standards, manage legal requirements, maintain industry quality and understand building regulations.

You’ll also gain valuable business skills such as how to manage contracts and small business finances. Pivotal skills to support the growth and development of any business.

The CPC40110 Certificate IV in Building and Construction (Building) qualification is designed for those seeking to apply for an Industry Builders Licence or Low-Rise Builders Licence. This program provides candidates with the technical and managerial skills to become a Foreman and/or Site Manager for low-rise buildings and construction projects. Refer to your state building authority for details.
