CPC40120 Certificate IV in Building and Construction will allow you to develop the skills necessary to run a small to medium construction business. This certificate has been made for individuals looking to pursue a career within the building industry, or people seeking a change in career or re-entering the workforce.
Throughout this course you will learn about environmental management practices, safety and risk management, contracts, structural principles, managing projects and estimating and monitoring costs.
The strength of SITS’ Certificate IV in Building and Construction (Building) lies within its flexibility to adapt content to cover industrial, residential and commercial low-medium rise construction with special attention to management techniques, project work and preparation and evaluation of tender documentation.
The construction industry strongly believes gaining the appropriate skillset and knowledge required for the industry will only occur with training and assessment that’s undertaken in a real or very closely simulated workplace environment. Therefore, this qualification requires all core units 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. Successful completion of unit CPCCOHS1001A meets this requirement.
