Course Objectives

This qualification provides an occupational outcome and a range of support tasks applicable to a majority of construction work sites.
    Occupational titles may include:
  • builder's labourer.
        The qualification has core units of competency that are required in many Certificate III qualifications. The elective options are structured to allow choice from a range of units aligned at Certificate III level and in total could provide meaningful credit in a construction industry Australian Apprenticeship.
          The construction industry strongly affirms that training and assessment leading to recognition of skills must be undertaken in a real or very closely simulated workplace environment and this qualification requires all units of competency to be delivered in this context.
            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.

            Admission Requirements

            There are no admission requirements for this course, however a Certificate I in Construction will be highly regarded.

              Course Requirements

              To achieve a Certificate II in Construction a total of FIFTEEN (15) units of competency must be completed. This comprises of TEN (10) core units of competency and FIVE (5) elective units of competency as detailed in the packaging rules.
