The Certificate IV in Building and Construction (Building) will give your the skills necessary to run a small to medium construction business.
And this version of the Certificate IV has been designed for people looking to start a career in the building industry, or people looking to change careers or re-enter the workforce.
This qualification will give you the knowledge of building structures under the National Construction Code (NCC), the legislation that accompanies any building project. It may also assist you to meet the requirements of the Victorian Building Authority (VBA) to become a registered building practitioner in Victoria.
You will also learn about environmental management practices, safety and risk management, managing projects, contracts, structural principles and estimating and monitoring costs.
The strength of the program lies in its flexibility to adapt content to cover residential, industrial and commercial low rise and medium rise construction with special attention to management techniques, project work and prepare and evaluate tender documentation.
This course can be undertaken full time, part time, or online, or a mixture of all three so you can fit your study around your work and personal life commitments.
Upon completion, students can expect to have the knowledge and skills required of a builder, site manager, foreman or construction manager.
