The Diploma of Building and Construction can provide you with a trade outcome, giving you the skills to further or start your career, and covers work in residential and commercial applications.
The construction industry is booming, with many opportunities to join it for students who wish to build their skills. It’s an industry where communication, leadership and planning are in very high demand. Upon completion of the Diploma of Building and Construction, you will have the skills required to build your career, manage commercial and domestic building sites, or even run your own business.
The construction industry believes training that leads to the recognition of skills must be undertaken in a real or closely simulated workplace environment. This qualification requires all units of competency to be delivered in this context.
It is important to note that the completion of the general induction training program specified by the National Code of Practice for Induction Training for Construction Work (ASCC 2007) is required before entering a construction work site. Achievement of unit CPCCOHS1001A covers this requirement.
