What can I learn from a diploma in construction management?

With a diploma in construction management, you gain all the foundational and practical skills to successfully find employment within the building sector. This entails gaining both the theoretical knowledge and hands-on skills to manage complex construction planning. You’ll also build operational, evaluatory, and problem-solving skills to assist with the entire management process.

Through this builder’s course, you’ll also study how to manage different budgets, resources, and your team of contractors while maintaining work health and safety principles. This means you’ll learn both trade-specific skills (building code knowledge, structures, etc.) and managerial skills (developing team rapport, conflict management, etc.) to establish an appropriate foundation for this type of work. Furthermore, you can select a variety of electives that can help you specialise in a particular aspect of construction management, whether you want to learn more about the supervisory or leadership aspect.

Upon completion of this diploma in construction management, you’ll have the right qualifications to work in a range of senior project management positions in the building and construction industry. Know that all the trainers/assessors teaching our building and construction courses at Everthought are highly qualified and have relevant industry experience.

Another pathway that opens after you take this course is further education at the tertiary level. You may qualify for some exemptions especially if you’re applying for a graduate diploma in construction management or its equivalent, whether through an external scholarship or RTO.

 

What are the career outcomes after completing a diploma in construction management?

While there’s no denying that working on tools and the physical aspect of any building or construction project is satisfying, it can take a physical and mental toll on your body. Working towards a diploma in construction management is a great way to be involved in the industry while moving away from those aches and pains.

You also have the option to take those skills from the diploma and apply it to your own construction business, allowing you a greater amount of freedom within the industry. You can have the pleasure of building your team of contractors and personally choosing what projects you want to work on.

That being said, the construction industry in Australia is one of the largest, so the demand for people with a diploma in construction management is quite high. Here are some of the employment and career options available to you upon completion of this specific trade qualification:

  • Construction planner. Construction planners organise, coordinate, budget, and supervise construction projects from development to completion. At a high level, they can do all sorts of things such as managing contracts, preparing budgets, and paying fees that maximise efficiency, and they ensure the quality of the building project.
  • Project manager. Project managers are in charge of ensuring the success of construction projects. They take on a more supervisory role, with the main goal of overseeing every aspect of the project, which includes the planning, execution, monitoring, control, and closure of the structure or building.
  • Estimator. For those who are good with numbers, estimators help construction planners with the budgets and settle various costs associated with the project. They suggest ways to maximise the budget and make the most out of the funding that is provided.
