Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)


What skills will I gain from a Certificate I in Construction programme?


In this certificate programme, you will learn and improve a variety of fundamental construction skills that can help you adapt to the ever-evolving industry. These include an understanding of crucial safety practices and the ability to operate and handle a wide range of tools that are integral to construction tasks.

Meanwhile, our course at Everthought – CPC40120 Certificate IV in Building and Construction – teaches builders the skills and knowledge they need to run a successful building business, such as how to plan construction projects, apply building codes, and supervise them on-site.


When you have Everthought on your side as you work towards getting your certification, you are gaining the essential building and construction skills that can pave the way for your career in the field. 


How is the Certificate I in Construction different from a diploma or degree in construction?


CPC40120 Certificate I in Construction is an entry certificate programme. Certificate courses like this are designed to be shorter and more focused than diploma or degree programmes. It works best for those seeking to swiftly acquire specific skills in the construction field. 


Construction diplomas are also specialised and skill-focused. However, they delve deeper into course concepts and are more comprehensive. So, depending on the specific diploma you’re taking, these often take longer to complete. 


In contrast to the first two’s specialised nature, a degree encompasses a more broad and varied curriculum, earned through several years of full-time study at a college or university. 

The education that best matches you


At Everthought, we proudly offer both certificate and diploma programmes. Whether you want a construction diploma or a trade certificate, each of our offerings is carefully crafted to provide you with everything you need to excel in your field. 


Feel free to explore our courses and find the path that aligns with your goals. Reach out to us, and we’ll be more than happy to guide you through your options and help you build a successful future in construction. 


What is the job outlook for individuals with a Certificate I in Construction?


The construction sector is booming with job opportunities, and the demand for skilled tradespeople in the field is continuing to grow. With a certification, you can fill that gap. While a Certificate I in Construction can help you begin a career as a builder, you can take it to the next level and get a CPC40120 Certificate IV in Building and Construction for a career as a site supervisor or construction manager.
