Project scope

This project will develop a skill set in BIM awareness for the Construction, Plumbing and Services (CPC) Training Package. BIM is an emerging technology with the construction industry and will be a requirement across many occupations, making a micro-credential in BIM awareness an essential component of the CPC training package. Other training packages that cover occupations across the built environment will also be able to import this skill set to use as upskilling or continuous professional development.

One new skill set will be developed:

  • Introduction to Building Information Modelling
  • up to 3 new units will be developed.

Project timelines

The Case for Endorsement is due for submission in August 2020.

Please note, the Property IRC is exploring a somewhat similar—but separate—project on integrated digital delivery. Although these projects are being developed separately, both IRCs are keen to ensure that units and skill sets from each training package complement (rather than duplicate) each other.

Summary of development

This project is developing a skill set in BIM awareness for the CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package. BIM is an emerging technology within the construction industry and will be a requirement across many occupations, making a micro-credential in BIM awareness an essential component of the training package. Other training packages that cover occupations across the built environment will also be able to import this skill set as a means of upskilling or continuous professional development.

A Technical Advisory Group has been formed to guide the development of this skill set. Representatives of the construction industry are encouraged to participate further to ensure that the industry’s objectives for workers undertaking this skill set are met.

The Case for Endorsement will be submitted for the AISC meeting in August 2020.

Key outcomes

One new skill set has been developed including three new units of competency that provide an introduction to BIM:

CPCBIM4001 Plan building or construction work to comply with BIM project requirements Skills and knowledge required to plan building or construction work activities to comply with BIM project requirements. It includes determining BIM requirements for building or construction activities, preparing the tools and technologies required to use BIM processes, and accessing and comparing 2D drawings and 3D models and related data.
CPCBIM4002 Use BIM processes to carry out building or construction work Skills and knowledge required to use BIM processes to carry out building or construction work. It includes using 2D drawings and 3D models and related data to clarify work requirements, manage interferences and risks associated with planned work, and schedule and sequence work activities and resources.
CPCBIM4003 Finalise building or construction work to comply with BIM project requirements Skills and knowledge required to finalise building or construction work to comply with BIM project requirements. It includes confirming handover requirements and deliverables, validating data for completed work, and completing handover in compliance with the BIM execution plan for the project.

Consultation strategy

Draft one of the proposed units are now available for feedback until Tuesday 16th June 2020. The current unit drafts and feedback link can be found below.
