What can I learn in a builder’s course?
There are many different things you can learn in a builder’s course. Generally, in a building and construction certification or a diploma in building and construction, you learn new skills that open the doors to new and specialised career paths.
With the large array of building and construction courses you can choose from, it’s easy to get lost as to what course is best for you. To help, we’ve detailed the various outcomes and skills you’ll learn in any of our online builder’s courses at Everthought:
In any of our construction builder courses, you’ll work towards developing trade-specific skills that lay down the foundation of your career. The skills you learn in our online academy vary depending on the course you choose, and you can learn anything from painting to wall tiling.
Take time to study each of the builder’s courses available on our website to find the specific program that speaks to you. Know that in any of our courses for builders, apprenticeships, or builders training programs, you’ll be given practical experience and technical knowledge on how to handle equipment related to your course throughout the duration of your studies.
Work-ethic, organisational, and management skills
Whether you’re seeking a supervisory role, looking to start your own construction business, or are just getting started in your trade, these soft skills are just as important as trade-specific ones. At Everthought, depending on which of our home construction courses you choose, we will also provide you with an understanding of the strategy involved in achieving a successful building and construction project.
You’ll learn how to interpret drafts, negotiate with stakeholders, and even manage a team effectively. You’ll also develop research skills that will facilitate initiative when you’re on the job and encourage further learning down the line. This means you’ll be prepared to make a great first impression when you move into an apprenticeship position and receive more direct mentoring.
How long does it take to complete a builder’s course?
There’s no doubt that becoming a builder in Australia can be a strenuous process, but it can also be a satisfying one depending on your skillset. Depending on your educational achievements, work experience, and the area you live in, becoming a builder can take up to two to four years.
Completing a builder’s course is just one of the many steps to getting yourself established as a builder in Australia, and the course length depends on the nature of the course itself. Our longer and more complete builder’s courses take up to two years to complete, while our short course skills training programs can be accomplished in a couple of months.
For example, our CPC40120 Certificate IV in Building and Construction (which is seen as a good course for entering the construction and building industry) can take up to one-year full-time learning (which is equivalent to four terms), while our business builders course on launching your business takes about three to six months.
You may also be eligible for qualification through our recognition of previous learning programs if you already have some work experience as a builder. This can let you fast-track your certification and diploma towards a builder’s licence as long as you manage to complete the RPL assessment.
Are there any entry requirements for the course?
Due to the wide array of builder’s courses we have available at Everthought, it’s best practice to browse through and find a course that works for you. Each builder’s course has its own entry requirements, such as a pre-assessment (the LLN, though it’s not a barrier to entry) or a language test (if you are an international student applying on a student visa).
Generally, as long as you’re 18+ years of age and have some prior education (at least completed Australian Year 11 or 12), there’s most likely a builder’s course you can apply for at Everthought.
Do note that some of our courses require special circumstances, such as pre-employment at a construction or work site, so we highly recommend taking time to browse through each course you’re interested in and checking their entry requirements.
If you have any questions throughout the application process, feel free to call us through our hotline or send us an email. Once you’ve found a builder’s course you like, all you need to do is fill out our short application form and wait for our email.
