Generally, as we offer a quite varied catalogue with our building and construction courses, there really isn’t anything you can’t learn. It’s just about finding the right on-site or online construction courses that fit what you are personally interested in.
For example, if you’re looking to really develop your skills and specialise yourself as a licensed builder, a Certificate III in Carpentry can help you diversify what you know, making you a more competitive candidate for greater income.
However, as a guide, here’s some information to what type of skills you’ll find yourself learning in our courses for builders:
These occupational skills lay the foundations of your career and are specifically tied to the program you’re pursuing. For example, if you’re looking for a carpentry qualification, you’ll learn things like how to install fixtures and also safely demolish small structures.
With this in mind, it’s better to choose a broader entry point if you’re looking to explore each aspect of the industry. Also for those seeking to get their builder’s licence, there are courses that are required as part of the application process, such as the Certificate IV in Building and Construction (CPC40120) and Diploma of Building and Construction (Building) (CPC50220), depending on your state.

With some of our specialty programs as well, you’ll learn how to be a business owner, which involves not only interpreting drafts and plans, but also negotiating with stakeholders and being aware of the various legislations, regulations, and codes when it comes to a building project.
What employment opportunity will I have after completing a building and construction course?
After taking our building and construction courses, you can not only extend your educational pathway but also find employment in various roles within the sector. Here are some jobs you can expect to find available to you:
