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. To achieve this qualification, the candidate must have access to a live building and construction workplace to meet the requirements detailed in the Assessment Requirements of core unit CPCCBC4008 Supervise communication and administration processes for building and construction projects.
Completion of the general construction induction training program specified by the model Code of Practice for Construction Work is required for any person who is to carry out construction work. Achievement of unit CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry meets this requirement.
Typically, 1- 2 years and may vary on individual applicants’ circumstances
The duration may be reduced for individual Learner if credit towards the qualification is given in the form of recognition of prior learning, credit transfer or where the learner has some industry experience where skill gap training may be a more appropriate training program for that learner.
This information is collected and analysed during information and enrolment session.
This program is delivered in a blended combination of classroom-based, Workplace Based, CiRT and self-directed learning.
The training will be delivered via training stages based on industry consultation.
These stages provide context to the delivery, a greater comprehension and relevance in the relationship between one unit and the other for you to gain a complex and greater understanding of the underpinning knowledge required for each of the units.
Entry into this qualification must always commence with Stage 1.
Stages 2 through to the final stage have the flexibility to be sequenced in any order of delivery, but the units selected in each stage must remain in each stage.
