Project status

The Australian Industry Skills Committee approved four updated/new qualifications at their meeting on February 25th:

  • CPC40320 Certificate IV in Building Project Support
  • CPC50220 Diploma of Building and Construction (Building)
  • CPC53220 Diploma of Building and Construction (Management)
  • CPC60220 Advanced Diploma of Building and Construction (Management).

The AISC directed that CPC40120 Certificate IV in Building and Construction requires further work to refine the packaging rules to better support the two occupational specialisations identified and ensure consistency with the Training Package Operating Framework. They also directed the removal of the requirement for onsite assessment from the unit of competency CPCCBC4008 Supervise communication and administration processes for building and construction projects.

The deletion of the following qualifications was endorsed:

  • CPC40408 Certificate IV in Building and Construction (Sales)
  • CPC40611 Certificate IV in Building and Construction (Specialist Trades)
  • CPC40708 Certificate IV in Building and Construction (Trade Contracting).

What happens next

The Construction Industry Reference Committee (IRC) will be working with stakeholders to resolve the matters raised by the Australian Industry Skills Committee in order to action implementation of Release 5 of the CPC Training Package as soon as possible.

Release 5 will then be forwarded to the COAG Industry and Skills Council for final endorsement. The approved components will be published on the National Register and companion volumes will be published on VETNet.

The timeframe for this resolution is presently unknown.
