What's Happening

Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package

CPC Releases 5.0, 6.0 and 7.0 endorsed for implementation

On behalf of the Construction Industry Reference Committee, Artibus Innovation is pleased to announce that at the August 2020 meeting, the Australian Industry Skills Committee (AISC) fully endorsed the above releases of the Construction, Plumbing and Service (CPC) Training Package.

It determined that the directives from the February meeting, which had delayed implementation, had been satisfactorily addressed and that Release 5.0 was now fully endorsed for implementation, subject to final sign-off by the Skills Ministers.

We would like to sincerely thank the hundreds of people who participated in these updates to the training package, whether through TAG membership, the provision of expert advice, attendance at forums and/or providing stakeholder feedback.  It’s great to see the commitment and passion within the vocational education sector which is a tribute to the sector as a whole.

The qualifications below will be available on training.gov.au once the sequencing of uploading of the variety of endorsed training packages is established (possibly early November).

Training providers with these qualifications currently on scope will receive notification from ASQA about the effect, if any, these releases will have on their scope.

Extensions to the Learner transition time-frames for the Plumbing, Building and Construction and Carpentry qualifications are anticipated.  We will make further announcements once these time frames are confirmed.
