Project: Demolition

Stage 2

On behalf of the Construction, Plumbing and Services IRC, Artibus Innovation is reviewing and updating the following training package components:

  • 2 qualifications:
    • CPC3XX19 Certificate III in Demolition
    • CPC4XX19 Certificate IV in Demolition
  • 25 units of competency.

A Technical Advisory Group (TAG) has been established to provide key input on the:

  • suitability of packaging of the qualifications
  • unit relevancy and content.

The first TAG meeting was held 13 July 2018. TAG members advised on:

  • recoding the units to reflect to better reflect the demolition sector - proposed code CPCDEMOxxxxx
  • updating the packaging rules of both qualifications to align with current vocational outcomes
  • updating the 18 demolition unique units of competency
  • developing 5 new units of competency for the Certificate III and 2 new units for the Certificate IV to address specific industry needs (e.g. units focusing on demolition work plans and public liability)
  • removing units of competency that are not fit for purpose
  • potentially merging 3 units of competency to reduce duplication.
