The nationally recognised Diploma in Building and Construction equips you with the knowledge and abilities to advance your professional experience. You’ll get the necessary management skills to oversee a job site and guarantee that projects are finished on schedule and within budget.

You will learn new technical skills such as creating drawings and sketches, conducting site surveys, and planning and executing projects according to rules and regulations for building and construction. You will also learn administrative and managerial tasks such as cost monitoring and estimation, planning and sourcing labour requirements and supplies, and controlling project quality, risks, contracts, and execution of projects. You will have the knowledge and abilities to launch your own construction business.

This diploma is a nationally-recognised qualification that will take you one step closer to a builders licence in New South Wales (as long as you meet additional requirements).

Registration and licensing requirements differ by state. Each state has an independent regulatory body that governs the building and construction licences. To find out more information about licences and their requirements, visit the website of the relevant regulatory body in your state.

When you get a builders licence, it means you can plan and execute building projects without supervision and can lead a team in a safe and professional manner. It proves that you are able to understand and apply the compliance requirements of building and construction work as a certified practitioner.

  • The Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care covers the competencies of early childhood educators who design and implement approved learning frameworks in early childhood care and education services.
