A Certificate in Building and Construction helps students gain a trade outcome in building, which covers work in residential and commercial areas. A Certificate in Building and Construction is needed for you to work towards your builders licence; together, these credentials are needed to become a builder in Australia.


The importance of upskilling


Taking the initiative to develop yourself through building and construction training can help you stand out in today’s competitive job market. A CPC40120 Certificate IV in Building and Construction or perhaps a CPC30220 Certificate III in Carpentry can help you expand your knowledge and open doors to new job opportunities.

Pathways for flexible learning


Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)


An RPL certification recognises the skills and experience you already have. This can help you advance your career, increase your income, and formalise your credentials. If you have experience, skills and knowledge in your field of work in Australia, like a Certificate in Building and Construction, then there is a chance you are already eligible, or at least close to eligible, to get a related qualification.


With RPL, you don’t have to study what you already know. You will instead be assessed based on your skills, knowledge, and experience acquired through school, study, and life. Gap training can be provided if necessary.
