Certificate III in Construction Waterproofing offers a skills recognition program for waterproofers who want to convert their prior learning and experience in waterproofing into a professional qualification and to help them obtain their waterproofing contractor’s licence. The program is available to Australian students who are yet to complete their partial studies and experienced waterproofers who want to back their skills with a qualification. Migrants with relevant experience of Australian requirements and standards may also apply. Upon qualification, you may apply for a waterproofing licence.

To qualify for this certificate, you must provide evidence demonstrating that your skills and knowledge align with the courser’s learning outcomes. This evidence can take various forms. Demonstrating your current proficiency at a comparable level can be done through a CV (your student support representative can assist with this), an employment letter, or an employment contract.

Additionally, documents from prior work or educational experiences, such as references from licensed tradespeople you’ve collaborated with, apprenticeship records, academic transcripts, or assessments from relevant past qualifications, all contribute to the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) process. You can also submit proof of overseas qualifications or visual evidence of your work, especially for practical roles.
