Project: Swimming Pool and Spa Building


Stage 3

On behalf of the Construction, Plumbing and Services IRC, Artibus Innovation is reviewing and developing the CPC40808 Certificate IV in Swimming Pool and Spa Building qualification and 11 units of competency.

Further to the first round of consultation, 6 – 22 May 2019, minor edits were made to the units and an additional unit CPCSPS4011 Install precast concrete swimming pools has been created to address a construction technology that is gaining rapid adoption nationwide. It is included as an elective. 

The updated qualification, CPC40819 Certificate IV in Swimming Pool and Spa Building includes trade related skills associated with in-ground and above ground swimming pools and spas, as well as planning and project management skills. There are 10 new units and one updated unit* specific to swimming pool building:

  • CPCSPS4001 Investigate and prepare swimming pool site
  • CPCSPS4002 Select, procure and store construction materials for swimming pool and spa projects* 
  • CPCSPS4003 Install swimming pool and spa subsoil drainage
  • CPCSPS4004 Install swimming pool and spa circulation systems and components
  • CPCSPS4005 Install prefabricated fibreglass swimming pools and spas
  • CPCSPS4006 Apply and finish sprayed concrete for swimming pool and spa shells
  • CPCSPS4007 Commission ancillary pool systems and handover to client
  • CPCSPS4008 Install above ground swimming pools
  • CPCSPS4009 Undertake interior finishing of swimming pools and spas
  • CPCSPS4010 Lay swimming pool and spa coping
  • CPCSPS4011 Install precast concrete swimming pools.

‘Structural principles’ and ‘compliance with building codes and standards’ relevant to swimming pool and spa building are embedded in the relevant new units to ensure that these important concepts are applied in context. Two units are therefore proposed for removal: 

  • CPCCBC4049A Apply structural principles to construction of swimming pools and spas, and
  • CPCCBC4048A Apply building codes and standards to the construction process for swimming pools.

Final consultation

The final draft units and qualification are available for download below.

There is a short survey where you can provide any last comments on the units or qualification. Or, if you prefer you can email the project manager directly. Contact details are available below.
