About Artibus Innovation and its industry sectors

Artibus Innovation is the Skills Service Organisation (SS0) supporting the Industry Reference Committees (IRCs) for the Construction, Plumbing and Services, and Property Services industries in Australia. It develops, manages and distributes nationally endorsed and recognised Training Packages, and associated training and assessment materials.

The Construction, Plumbing and Services IRC represents the workforce training and skills development needs of the construction, plumbing and services sectors. More than 1.8 million Australians work in over 526 000 enterprises within these industry sectors. Together these workers and companies contribute greatly to Australia’s infrastructure by underpinning the nation’s economic and social fabric.

Refer to www.artibus.com.au for more information.

About the construction, plumbing and services sector

In economic terms the construction industry is a major segment of the Australian economy, employing nearly 900 000 people, with half of this workforce in the housing sector. The industry is characterised by contract labour and, with less than three people per firm, the norm is microbusinesses with owners working directly in a trade area, rather than just business management. The trend toward labour hire rather than direct employment is more pronounced in the general construction industry than in any other.

The CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package covers occupations and job roles in general and off-site construction, plumbing and services, from entry level to management.

Technology impacts on this sector in various ways. Building techniques used in the construction industry have undergone changes in recent years, with significant technological advances in prefabrication, energy efficiency and project management. These advancements have affected a wide range of fields from materials (concrete, metal pre-casting and alternative wood products), to management methods (subcontracting, prefabrication and project management), to innovations (robotics, computer-aided design and electronically linked project management teams). The benefits of technological advancement for the industry are seen in increased productivity, new capital equipment and the improved energy efficiency of buildings.

The plumbing and services sector is driven by public health and environmental requirements arising from the water industry and the need for proper sanitation. Sustainable and environmentally friendly practices are also driving the sector. The ongoing need to protect the environment from ozone‑depleting substances, and the search for alternative energy methods and water-saving measures will require that plumbers of the future address environmental requirements in their everyday activities and that they have the appropriate education and training to enable them to do so.

Purpose of this Guide

This Guide supports the CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package. It has been developed to assist trainers, assessors, Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) and others by providing information about the structure and content of the Training Package, as well as other guidance material.

About training packages

A Training Package is an integrated set of nationally endorsed Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) qualifications, units of competency and their associated assessment requirements for a specific industry, industry sector or enterprise.

Each Training Package:

  • provides a consistent and reliable set of components for training and for recognising and assessing learner skills, and may also have optional support materials
  • enables nationally recognised qualifications to be awarded through direct assessment of workplace competencies
  • encourages the development and delivery of flexible training that suits learner and industry requirements
  • strongly encourages learning and assessment in a work-related environment, which leads to verifiable workplace outcomes.

Training Packages specify the skills and knowledge required to perform effectively in the workplace. They do not prescribe how an individual should be trained. Trainers and supervisors develop learning strategies – the ‘how’ – depending on learner needs, abilities and circumstances.

The Training Package Development and Endorsement Process Policy ensures that qualifications, units of competency and their associated assessment requirements are developed to an agreed quality standard and are responsive to industry’s existing and future demand for new skills.

The following key principles underpin the process:

  • open and inclusive industry-driven improvement, validation and endorsement of Training Packages
  • strong and clear key stakeholder roles with critical points of intervention and consultation
  • high levels of responsiveness in order to meet industry needs and priorities for new skills.

More information about Training Packages may be found at: https://www.employment.gov.au/training-packages.

Key work and training requirements in the industry

Click here to expand

All Training Package components listed in this Guide have been developed to meet the Australian Government’s Standards for Training Packages 2012.

Additionally, all Training Package components listed are reviewed and developed in consultation with industry, RTOs, regulators and State Training Authorities (STAs). This ensures that the training requirements for the industry are met and align with licensing and regulatory needs of each jurisdiction.

Simulated workplace environments

The construction industry strongly encourages practical training of skills and knowledge in the workplace and supports on-the-job and or on-site training delivery or assessment, where appropriate. However, it is noted that training and assessment in the workplace is not always required or possible.

The Assessment Conditions section of the Assessment Requirements states whether assessment must take place in a real workplace or whether a simulated environment can be used.

Simulated workplace environments replicate real workplaces in which RTOs can train and assess the competency of candidates. This means that where units of competency state they can be assessed in a simulated workplace environment, realistic workplace conditions and standards (such as completion of activities within workplace timeframes and/or over a specific period of time), materials, activities, responsibilities (including interactions with other people), procedures, safety requirements, and environmental considerations must be replicated while training and assessing candidates.

Where required, the simulated work environment should involve a range of guided activities that reflect real work experiences. Where simulation is identified in the assessment conditions of a unit of competency it must be realistic and fully replicate the sector work environment.

Simulated workplace environments must meet industry requirements detailed in the units of competency and assessment requirements.

Simulated assessment should:

  • provide access to all the equipment and resources that would normally be used in the workplace for the task being assessed, for example; on-site induction, on-site inspection documents or rectification documentation
  • reflect the type of conditions usually found in the workplace – including interactions with others, responsibilities and interruptions that would typically occur
  • present realistic scenarios and problems
  • require the learner to demonstrate their skills under time constraints and irregularities that would normally apply in the workplace.

Candidates should perform the required skills as a component of multiple tasks, within a multi-disciplinary team and with interruptions, varying operational environments/conditions and unanticipated problems, where described.

Possible simulation strategies

The following represent current examples of simulated training and assessment being undertaken by RTOs:

  • Site office simulator that is set up to mirror the typical administration activities and interactions with various typical site staff.
  • The use of exemplars of real site documentation, drawings, specifications and quality systems. These are linked to photos and/or videos of the actual site as it progresses to completion. Real site exemplars can also be used in preparation for a site visit for on-the-job training and/or assessment and assist the student to quickly adapt to the live environment.
  • ‘Pairing’ of site-based students with externally based students provides both parties with opportunities to learn and share in a simulated /live work environment and breaks down barriers.
  • Setting up a ‘pop up’’ campus of the RTO on a live construction site so that students can easily transition between simulation and on-the-job training and assessment.

Live building and construction workplace

A live building and construction workplace would have all the following characteristics:

  • it would be a project that falls within the scope of the National Construction Code (NCC) classifications specified in the qualification/competency
  • the project would have documentation specific to that project, including:
    • site safety plan
    • contract
    • project plan
    • Gantt chart
    • quality plan
    • environmental plan
    • full project drawings
    • project specifications
    • project budget
    • site administration documentation such as registers, defect reports, diaries, variations.
  • the project would have a designated, licensed builder
  • subcontractors would be engaged, at least in the licenced areas of plumbing and electrical
  • the project site would be restricted by appropriate safety fencing and signage; and admittance would be after formal induction only
  • the project would be subject to local authority or other relevant body for inspection.

Regulation and licensing requirements implications for implementation

Regulatory, licensing and legislative requirements are outlined in the Qualification Description of each qualification and in the Application of each unit of competency.

Where there are no licensing, legislative or certification requirements applicable to a unit of competency the following is included in the Qualification Description/Application:

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this qualification/unit at the time of publication.

Licensing, legislative and certification requirements in the construction and plumbing industries can differ between states and territories. In these cases, users are advised to consult with the relevant regulatory authority.

RTOs are responsible for ensuring that delivery and assessment incorporates the appropriate licensing, legislative and certification requirements.

 

Implementation information

Information on key features of the Training Package and the industry that will impact on the selection of training pathways

Click here to expand

To meet the demands of industry and the requirements of VET stakeholders, Training Packages and their qualifications, units of competency and assessment requirements are subject to change, including continuous improvement processes.

Users are advised to check training.gov.au for the latest release of the CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package. Further releases of this Training Package will occur as more qualifications, skill sets and units of competency are transitioned into the CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package from the CPC08 Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package.

Maintaining currency in the CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package

For trainers to deliver training and assessors to assess candidate performance against units of competency from the CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package they will need to maintain currency in terms of their knowledge, skills, industry experience and licensing, legislative or certification requirements.

It is strongly recommended that, to maintain their vocational currency, trainers and assessors should have undertaken work experience or professional development related to the industry sector for the respective qualification within two years prior to their involvement in delivery and/or assessment.

Assessment conditions

The assessment requirements for each unit of competency contains an Assessment Conditions section that lists a range of assessment conditions, typically under the following categories:

  • equipment
  • materials
  • specifications
  • relationships with team members and supervisor
  • relationship with clients.

Where assessment is conducted in an actual worksite, safety and workplace induction requirements for RTO staff and learners will apply. In these situations, RTOs must ensure that any requirements are met to access and operate on the worksite. This may include the safe handling and operation of plant, equipment and materials.

Learner verification: online training and assessment

CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry does not preclude online delivery although, it should be noted, that the industry recommendation for the minimum time in terms of training and assessment is six hours.

Where an online delivery approach is used by RTOs it is recommended that significant efforts be made to ensure the identity of the learner throughout the process. The industry advises that an appropriate level of identity verification is referenced as in the National Identity Proofing Guidelines, specifically the ‘gold standard’ level of assurance 4 (very high).

Pathways advice

Click here to expand

There are currently no credit arrangements between qualifications in the CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package and higher education qualifications.

The AQF provides a comprehensive, nationally consistent framework for VET qualifications in Australia. The framework helps to provide consistency in the VET sector for all apprentices, trainees, learners, employers and RTOs by enabling recognition of qualifications and Statements of Attainment.

The framework enables flexible pathways that are horizontal (across qualifications at the same AQF level) and vertical (between qualifications at different AQF levels) and eliminates unnecessary and unfair barriers to AQF qualifications.

See the diagram below for CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package training pathways by AQF level.

Building surveying

The CPC60115 Advanced Diploma of Building Surveying and the building surveying skill set, CPCSS00004 Provide building surveying services for residential buildings up to three storeys, provide a pathway to new entrants seeking a career as building surveyors.

Along with the CPC80215 Graduate Diploma of Building Surveying, the building surveying qualifications and skill set also provide a pathway for experienced construction workers looking for a career change and wanting to expand their knowledge of building surveying.

The CPC80215 Graduate Diploma of Building Surveying also provides the opportunity for senior, experienced building surveyors to have their skills and knowledge recognised with a formal qualification.

Building and construction

No apprenticeship pathways are declared for these qualifications, however, the five qualifications have been redesigned and streamed to minimise duplication and strengthen pathway options, within and from, building and construction occupations, such as the construction pathways or carpentry and joinery qualifications.

These qualifications do not have any entry requirements, enabling multiple entry and exit points across the suite of qualifications. Units of competency that address underpinning skills and knowledge have been included as core units to enable movement between sectors.

The two Certificate IV qualifications have been designed to enable the following specialised occupational pathways, depending on the electives chosen:

  • CPC40120 Certificate IV in Building and Construction enables two specialised occupational outcomes reflected as:
    • CPC40120 Certificate IV in Building and Construction (Builder)

Access and equity considerations

Click here to expand

An individual’s access to the assessment process must be bias-free and should not be adversely affected by restrictions placed on the location or context of assessment beyond the requirements specified in the CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package.

Training Packages must reflect and cater for the increasing diversity of Australia’s VET clients and Australia’s current and future workforce. The flexibility offered by Training Packages should enhance opportunities and potential outcomes for all people so that we can all benefit from a wider national skills base and a shared contribution to Australia’s economic development, and social and cultural life.

Reasonable adjustment

It is important that RTOs take meaningful, transparent and reasonable steps to consult on, consider and implement reasonable adjustments for learners who experience disadvantage.

Under the Disability Standards for Education 2005, education providers must make reasonable adjustments for people with a disability to the maximum extent that those adjustments do not cause that provider unjustifiable hardship. While ‘reasonable adjustment’ and ‘unjustifiable hardship’ are different concepts and involve different considerations, they both seek to strike a balance between the interests of education providers and the interests of people with and without a disability.

An adjustment is any measure or action that a learner requires because of their disability and which has the effect of assisting the learner to access and participate in education and training on the same basis as those without a disability. An adjustment is reasonable if it achieves this purpose while considering factors such as the nature of the learner’s disability, the views of the learner, the potential effect of the adjustment on the learner and others who might be affected, and the costs and benefits of making the adjustment.

An education provider is also entitled to maintain the academic integrity of a course or program and to consider the requirements or components that are inherent or essential to its nature when assessing whether an adjustment is reasonable.

The Disability Standards for Education 2005 and the Disability Standards for Education Guidance Notes may be downloaded at https://education.gov.au/disability-standards-education.

Foundation skills

Foundation skills are the non-technical skills that support an individual’s participation in the workplace, in the community and in education and training.

In this Training Package (and all Training Packages developed by Artibus Innovation) the foundation skills incorporate the language, literacy and numeracy (LLN) skills described in the Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF).

The skills included in the ACSF are:

  • learning
  • reading
  • writing
  • oral communication

Where foundations skills essential to performance in a unit are explicit, the following statement will be included under the foundation skills field:

Foundation skills essential to performance are explicit in the performance criteria of this unit of competency.

Where foundation skills essential to performance in a unit are not explicit, then they will be listed in the foundation skills field in that unit.


Advice on any health and safety implications in the industry

Where required, health and safety elements have been addressed in the qualification and units of competency of the CPC Construction, Plumbing and Service Training Package.

Resource and equipment relevant to this Training Package

RTOs must ensure that the resources and equipment required for each unit of competency are made available at the time of training and assessment.

Legal requirements for learners in the workplace or involved in work experience that apply to industry-specific sectors covered in the CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package vary across each state and territory and can change from time to time.

Click here to expand

Users should contact the relevant state or territory training authority provided at the end of this Guide to check if legal requirements apply.

Assessment Conditions may stipulate that assessment must be undertaken in a workplace environment. There are a number of ways this may be facilitated:

  • The learner may already be an existing worker in the industry.
  • The RTO assessor may accompany (groups of) learners on arranged workplace visits for the purpose of assessment.
  • Learners may undertake work placement with an employer. The assessor may visit the workplace to directly observe performance or engage with the workplace to gather necessary evidence.

Work placements should always involve appropriate supervision and guidance from individuals in the workplace as well as from RTO trainers and assessors and must adhere to required legislation that applies in the jurisdiction. For example, RTOs and employers must ensure that learners meet appropriate WHS requirements while on a construction site.

To successfully conduct training and/or assessment in the workplace, the RTO must clearly identify training, monitoring and/or assessment roles and responsibilities of the RTO and the workplace parties, as required by Standard 1 and Standard 5.1– 5.4 of the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015.

Unless assessment methods (such as direct observation of performance by the assessor) are stipulated in the Assessment Conditions section of the Assessment Requirements associated with each unit of competency, RTOs should develop assessment methods for gathering required evidence as part of their training and assessment strategy relevant to their circumstances.

The Australian Skills Quality Authority website also provides information to assist RTOs in developing assessment strategies, which may include work placements, including:

Apprenticeships and traineeships are formal training arrangements between an employer and an employee that have been established by a state or territory training authority. Where a qualification is used for an apprenticeship or traineeship, the training must be recognised by the state or territory training authority. This includes the form and registration of indenture.

New Sections

Three new sections were written for use in these User Guides and ‘Access and equity considerations’ has been expanded.

Assessor requirements

Assessor requirements is a set of criteria providing guidance on the requirements an assessor must satisfy to be able to certify competency in Building Construction (CPC) and Building Design (CPP) qualifications. Approved by the IRC after an extensive period of consultation.

Recognised prior learning & sequencing

Recognised prior learning & sequencing is an assessment process where learners can seek recognition for formal, informal and non-formal learning to gain credit towards their qualification, satisfy entry requirements and prerequisites.

Assessment must satisfy the Principles of Assessment and Rules of Evidence and all regulatory requirements included within the Standards for Registered Training Organisations current at the time of assessment.

Industry sources recommend specific attention be paid to the rules of evidence in relation to currency and element level mapping. “Current” is considered to be within the immediate two years prior to enrolment. Key areas of attention are provided below:

  • Recognised prior learning based on work experience requires reference to specific current examples addressing individual elements. RPL cannot be based on employment as a Tradesperson, Draftsperson or Architect, Civil Engineer or Structural Engineer alone.
  • Recognised prior learning based on qualifications requires element level mapping at the same or higher AQF Level.
  • Recognised prior learning for these units cannot be based on presentation of an occupational builder’s licence with limitations such as the inability to carry out building works which require mandatory insurance (prohibiting the licence holder to contract to build complete houses),
  • Recognised prior learning for these units cannot be solely based the possession of any qualification or registration as an Architect, Engineer or Building Designer, nor possession of a Qualified Building Supervisor’s Certificate.

Approved by the IRC after an extensive period of consultation.

Purpose of this Guide

This Guide supports the CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package. It has been developed to assist trainers, assessors, Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) and others by providing information about the structure and content of the Training Package, as well as other guidance material.

About training packages

A Training Package is an integrated set of nationally endorsed Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) qualifications, units of competency and their associated assessment requirements for a specific industry, industry sector or enterprise.

Each Training Package:

  • provides a consistent and reliable set of components for training and for recognising and assessing learner skills, and may also have optional support materials
  • enables nationally recognised qualifications to be awarded through direct assessment of workplace competencies
  • encourages the development and delivery of flexible training that suits learner and industry requirements
  • strongly encourages learning and assessment in a work-related environment, which leads to verifiable workplace outcomes.

Training Packages specify the skills and knowledge required to perform effectively in the workplace. They do not prescribe how an individual should be trained. Trainers and supervisors develop learning strategies – the ‘how’ – depending on learner needs, abilities and circumstances.

The Training Package Development and Endorsement Process Policy ensures that qualifications, units of competency and their associated assessment requirements are developed to an agreed quality standard and are responsive to industry’s existing and future demand for new skills.

The following key principles underpin the process:

  • open and inclusive industry-driven improvement, validation and endorsement of Training Packages
  • strong and clear key stakeholder roles with critical points of intervention and consultation
  • high levels of responsiveness in order to meet industry needs and priorities for new skills.

More information about Training Packages may be found at: https://www.employment.gov.au/training-packages

 

About the construction, plumbing and services sector

In economic terms the construction industry is a major segment of the Australian economy, employing nearly 900 000 people, with half of this workforce in the housing sector. The industry is characterised by contract labour and, with less than three people per firm, the norm is microbusinesses with owners working directly in a trade area, rather than just business management. The trend toward labour hire rather than direct employment is more pronounced in the general construction industry than in any other.

The CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package covers occupations and job roles in general and off-site construction, plumbing and services, from entry level to management.

Technology impacts on this sector in various ways. Building techniques used in the construction industry have undergone changes in recent years, with significant technological advances in prefabrication, energy efficiency and project management. These advancements have affected a wide range of fields from materials (concrete, metal pre-casting and alternative wood products), to management methods (subcontracting, prefabrication and project management), to innovations (robotics, computer-aided design and electronically linked project management teams). The benefits of technological advancement for the industry are seen in increased productivity, new capital equipment and the improved energy efficiency of buildings.

The plumbing and services sector is driven by public health and environmental requirements arising from the water industry and the need for proper sanitation. Sustainable and environmentally friendly practices are also driving the sector. The ongoing need to protect the environment from ozone depleting substances, and the search for alternative energy methods and water-saving measures will require that plumbers of the future address environmental requirements in their everyday activities and that they have the appropriate education and training to enable them to do so.

Summary of the CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package

The CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package comprises:

  • 39 qualifications
  • 605 units of competency and associated assessment requirements
  • 1 skill set
  • 94 imported units of competency.

Key work and training requirements in the industry

Click here to expand

All Training Package components listed in this Guide have been developed to meet the Australian Government’s Standards for Training Packages 2012.

Additionally, all Training Package components listed are reviewed and developed in consultation with industry, RTOs, regulators and State Training Authorities (STAs). This ensures that the training requirements for the industry are met and align with licensing and regulatory needs of each jurisdiction.

Simulated workplace environments

The construction industry strongly encourages practical training of skills and knowledge in the workplace and supports on-the-job and or on-site training delivery or assessment, where appropriate. However, it is noted that training and assessment in the workplace is not always required or possible.

The Assessment Conditions section of the Assessment Requirements states whether assessment must take place in a real workplace or whether a simulated environment can be used.

Simulated workplace environments replicate real workplaces in which RTOs can train and assess the competency of candidates. This means that where units of competency state they can be assessed in a simulated workplace environment, realistic workplace conditions and standards (such as completion of activities within workplace timeframes and/or over a specific period of time), materials, activities, responsibilities (including interactions with other people), procedures, safety requirements, and environmental considerations must be replicated while training and assessing candidates.

Where required, the simulated work environment should involve a range of guided activities that reflect real work experiences. Where simulation is identified in the assessment conditions of a unit of competency it must be realistic and fully replicate the sector work environment.

Simulated workplace environments must meet industry requirements detailed in the units of competency and assessment requirements.

Simulated assessment should:

  • provide access to all the equipment and resources that would normally be used in the workplace for the task being assessed, for example; on-site induction, on-site inspection documents or rectification documentation
  • reflect the type of conditions usually found in the workplace – including interactions with others, responsibilities and interruptions that would typically occur
  • present realistic scenarios and problems
  • require the learner to demonstrate their skills under time constraints and irregularities that would normally apply in the workplace.

Candidates should perform the required skills as a component of multiple tasks, within a multi-disciplinary team and with interruptions, varying operational environments/conditions and unanticipated problems, where described.

Possible simulation strategies

The following represent current examples of simulated training and assessment being undertaken by RTOs:

  • Site office simulator that is set up to mirror the typical administration activities and interactions with various typical site staff.
  • The use of exemplars of real site documentation, drawings, specifications and quality systems. These are linked to photos and/or videos of the actual site as it progresses to completion. Real site exemplars can also be used in preparation for a site visit for on-the-job training and/or assessment and assist the student to quickly adapt to the live environment.
  • ‘Pairing’ of site-based students with externally based students provides both parties with opportunities to learn and share in a simulated /live work environment and breaks down barriers.
  • Setting up a ‘pop up’’ campus of the RTO on a live construction site so that students can easily transition between simulation and on-the-job training and assessment.

Live building and construction workplace

A live building and construction workplace would have all the following characteristics:

  • it would be a project that falls within the scope of the National Construction Code (NCC) classifications specified in the qualification/competency
  • the project would have documentation specific to that project, including:
    • site safety plan
    • contract
    • project plan
    • Gantt chart
    • quality plan
    • environmental plan
    • full project drawings
    • project specifications
    • project budget
    • site administration documentation such as registers, defect reports, diaries, variations.
  • the project would have a designated, licensed builder
  • subcontractors would be engaged, at least in the licenced areas of plumbing and electrical
  • the project site would be restricted by appropriate safety fencing and signage; and admittance would be after formal induction only
  • the project would be subject to local authority or other relevant body for inspection.

Pathways advice

Click here to expand

There are currently no credit arrangements between qualifications in the CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package and higher education qualifications.

The AQF provides a comprehensive, nationally consistent framework for VET qualifications in Australia. The framework helps to provide consistency in the VET sector for all apprentices, trainees, learners, employers and RTOs by enabling recognition of qualifications and Statements of Attainment.

The framework enables flexible pathways that are horizontal (across qualifications at the same AQF level) and vertical (between qualifications at different AQF levels) and eliminates unnecessary and unfair barriers to AQF qualifications.

See the diagram below for CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package training pathways by AQF level.

Building surveying

The CPC60115 Advanced Diploma of Building Surveying and the building surveying skill set, CPCSS00004 Provide building surveying services for residential buildings up to three storeys, provide a pathway to new entrants seeking a career as building surveyors.

Along with the CPC80215 Graduate Diploma of Building Surveying, the building surveying qualifications and skill set also provide a pathway for experienced construction workers looking for a career change and wanting to expand their knowledge of building surveying.

The CPC80215 Graduate Diploma of Building Surveying also provides the opportunity for senior, experienced building surveyors to have their skills and knowledge recognised with a formal qualification.

Building and construction

No apprenticeship pathways are declared for these qualifications, however, the five qualifications have been redesigned and streamed to minimise duplication and strengthen pathway options, within and from, building and construction occupations, such as the construction pathways or carpentry and joinery qualifications.

These qualifications do not have any entry requirements, enabling multiple entry and exit points across the suite of qualifications. Units of competency that address underpinning skills and knowledge have been included as core units to enable movement between sectors.

The two Certificate IV qualifications have been designed to enable the following specialised occupational pathways, depending on the electives chosen:

CPC40120 Certificate IV in Building and Construction enables two specialised occupational outcomes reflected as:

  • CPC40120 Certificate IV in Building and Construction (Builder)
  • CPC40120 Certificate IV in Building and Construction (Site Manager)

CPC41120 Certificate IV in Building Project Support enables two specialised occupational outcomes reflected as:

  • CPC41120 Certificate IV in Building Project Support (Estimator)
  • CPC41120 Certificate IV in Building Project Support (Contract Administrator).

Other apprenticeship information

The following qualifications are suitable for apprenticeship pathways:

  • CPC30116 Certificate III in Shopfitting

Licensing and regulation

Regulation and licensing requirements implications for implementation

Regulatory, licensing and legislative requirements are outlined in the Qualification Description of each qualification and in the Application of each unit of competency.

Where there are no licensing, legislative or certification requirements applicable to a unit of competency the following is included in the Qualification Description/Application:

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this qualification/unit at the time of publication.

Licensing, legislative and certification requirements in the construction and plumbing industries can differ between states and territories. In these cases, users are advised to consult with the relevant regulatory
authority.

RTOs are responsible for ensuring that delivery and assessment incorporates the appropriate licensing, legislative and certification requirements.

Work health and safety

Advice on any health and safety implications in the industry

Where required, health and safety elements have been addressed in the qualification and units of competency of the CPC Construction, Plumbing and Service Training Package.

Legal requirements for learners in the workplace or involved in work experience that apply to industry-specific sectors covered in the CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package vary across each state and territory and can change from time to time.

Users should contact the relevant state or territory training authority provided at the end of this Guide to check if legal requirements apply.

Assessment Conditions may stipulate that assessment must be undertaken in a workplace environment. There are a number of ways this may be facilitated:

  • The learner may already be an existing worker in the industry.
  • The RTO assessor may accompany (groups of) learners on arranged workplace visits for the purpose of assessment.
  • Learners may undertake work placement with an employer. The assessor may visit the workplace to directly observe performance or engage with the workplace to gather necessary evidence.

Work placements should always involve appropriate supervision and guidance from individuals in the workplace as well as from RTO trainers and assessors and must adhere to required legislation that applies in the jurisdiction. For example, RTOs and employers must ensure that learners meet appropriate WHS requirements while on a construction site.

To successfully conduct training and/or assessment in the workplace, the RTO must clearly identify training, monitoring and/or assessment roles and responsibilities of the RTO and the workplace parties, as required by Standard 1 and Standard 5.1– 5.4 of the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015.

Unless assessment methods (such as direct observation of performance by the assessor) are stipulated in the Assessment Conditions section of the Assessment Requirements associated with each unit of competency, RTOs should develop assessment methods for gathering required evidence as part of their training and assessment strategy relevant to their circumstances.

The Australian Skills Quality Authority website also provides information to assist RTOs in developing assessment strategies, which may include work placements, including:

Apprenticeships and traineeships are formal training arrangements between an employer and an employee that have been established by a state or territory training authority. Where a qualification is used for an apprenticeship or traineeship, the training must be recognised by the state or territory training authority. This includes the form and registration of indenture.

Recognised prior learning & sequencing

Click here to expand

Recognised prior learning is an assessment process as part of the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) allowing students to receive recognition for previous competency outcomes. Recognised prior learning encompasses formal, informal and non-formal learning, and if successful can reduce the duration of a qualification and potentially satisfy entry requirements and pre-requisites. The credit outcomes of recognised prior learning are specific to the individual’s circumstance.

Source: https://www.aqf.edu.au/sites/aqf/files/rpl-explanation.pdf

Assessment must satisfy the Principles of Assessment and Rules of Evidence and all regulatory requirements included within the Standards for Registered Training Organisations current at the time of assessment.

Industry sources recommend specific attention be paid to the rules of evidence in relation to currency and element level mapping. “Current” is considered to be within the immediate two years prior to enrolment. Key areas of attention are provided below:

  • Recognised prior learning based on work experience requires reference to specific current examples addressing individual elements. RPL cannot be based on employment as a Tradesperson, Draftsperson or Architect, Civil Engineer or Structural Engineer alone.
  • Recognised prior learning based on qualifications requires element level mapping at the same or higher AQF Level.
  • Recognised prior learning for these units cannot be based on presentation of an occupational builder’s licence with limitations such as the inability to carry out building works which require mandatory insurance (prohibiting the licence holder to contract to build complete houses),
  • Recognised prior learning for these units cannot be solely based the possession of any qualification or registration as an Architect, Engineer or Building Designer, nor possession of a Qualified Building Supervisor’s Certificate.

With regards to building and construction qualifications (CPC40120, CPC40320, CPC50220, CPC50319, CPC60220) the following units should be sequenced first:

  • CPCCBC4012 Read and interpret plans and specifications
  • CPCCBC4001 Apply building codes and standards to the construction process for Class 1 and 10 buildings
  • CPCCBC4010 Apply structural principles to residential and commercial constructions
  • CPCCBC4012 Read and interpret plans and specifications
  • CPCCBC4014 Prepare simple building sketches and drawings
  • CPCCB5001 Apply codes and standards to the construction process for Type B Construction

Information on key features of the Training Package and the industry that will impact on the selection of training pathways

Click here to expand

To meet the demands of industry and the requirements of VET stakeholders, Training Packages and their qualifications, units of competency and assessment requirements are subject to change, including continuous improvement processes.

Users are advised to check training.gov.au for the latest release of the CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package. Further releases of this Training Package will occur as more qualifications, skill sets and units of competency are transitioned into the CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package from the CPC08 Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package.

Maintaining currency in the CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package

For trainers to deliver training and assessors to assess candidate performance against units of competency from the CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package they will need to maintain currency in terms of their knowledge, skills, industry experience and licensing, legislative or certification requirements.

It is strongly recommended that, to maintain their vocational currency, trainers and assessors should have undertaken work experience or professional development related to the industry sector for the respective qualification within two years prior to their involvement in delivery and/or assessment.

Assessment conditions

The assessment requirements for each unit of competency contains an Assessment Conditions section that lists a range of assessment conditions, typically under the following categories:

  • equipment
  • materials
  • specifications
  • relationships with team members and supervisor
  • relationship with clients.

Where assessment is conducted in an actual worksite, safety and workplace induction requirements for RTO staff and learners will apply. In these situations, RTOs must ensure that any requirements are met to access and operate on the worksite. This may include the safe handling and operation of plant, equipment and materials.

Learner verification: online training and assessment

CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry does not preclude online delivery although, it should be noted, that the industry recommendation for the minimum time in terms of training and assessment is six hours.

Where an online delivery approach is used by RTOs it is recommended that significant efforts be made to ensure the identity of the learner throughout the process. The industry advises that an appropriate level of identity verification is referenced as in the National Identity Proofing Guidelines, specifically the ‘gold standard’ level of assurance 4 (very high).

For further details: https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/criminal-justice/files/national-identity-proofing-guidelines.pdf.


Access and equity considerations

Click here to expand

An individual’s access to the assessment process must be bias-free and should not be adversely affected by restrictions placed on the location or context of assessment beyond the requirements specified in the CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package.

Training Packages must reflect and cater for the increasing diversity of Australia’s VET clients and Australia’s current and future workforce. The flexibility offered by Training Packages should enhance opportunities and potential outcomes for all people so that we can all benefit from a wider national skills base and a shared contribution to Australia’s economic development, and social and cultural life.

Reasonable adjustment

It is important that RTOs take meaningful, transparent and reasonable steps to consult on, consider and implement reasonable adjustments for learners who experience disadvantage.

Under the Disability Standards for Education 2005, education providers must make reasonable adjustments for people with a disability to the maximum extent that those adjustments do not cause that provider unjustifiable hardship. While ‘reasonable adjustment’ and ‘unjustifiable hardship’ are different concepts and involve different considerations, they both seek to strike a balance between the interests of education providers and the interests of people with and without a disability.

An adjustment is any measure or action that a learner requires because of their disability and which has the effect of assisting the learner to access and participate in education and training on the same basis as those without a disability. An adjustment is reasonable if it achieves this purpose while considering factors such as the nature of the learner’s disability, the views of the learner, the potential effect of the adjustment on the learner and others who might be affected, and the costs and benefits of making the adjustment.

An education provider is also entitled to maintain the academic integrity of a course or program and to consider the requirements or components that are inherent or essential to its nature when assessing whether an adjustment is reasonable.

The Disability Standards for Education 2005 and the Disability Standards for Education Guidance Notes may be downloaded at http://education.gov.au/disability-standards-education.

Indigenous learners

When delivering this Training Package to Indigenous Australian’s, trainers and assessors should make themselves aware of equity considerations to ensure Aboriginal Australians have equal opportunity to attain competency. Experiences of mainstream society and education can vary for Aboriginal Australian’s due to their history of marginalised treatment, and in some cases additional or alternative measures must be explored to cultivate a positive learning environment. Respecting and empowering the Aboriginal experience requires engaging with Aboriginal culture on a meaningful level, and for guidance in this area it is recommended to communicate with local Elders and senior Aboriginal community members to understand potential issues in the training and delivery of the Training Package.

Foundation skills

Foundation skills are the non-technical skills that support an individual’s participation in the workplace, in the community and in education and training.

In this Training Package (and all Training Packages developed by Artibus Innovation) the foundation skills incorporate the language, literacy and numeracy (LLN) skills described in the Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF).

The skills included in the ACSF are:

  • learning
  • reading
  • writing
  • oral communication
  • numeracy.

Where foundations skills essential to performance in a unit are explicit, the following statement will be included under the foundation skills field: Foundation skills essential to performance are explicit in the performance criteria of this unit of competency. Where foundation skills essential to performance in a unit are not explicit, then they will be listed in the foundation skills field in that unit.

The Employer User Guide is for business owners, managers and human resource staff. The advice relates to licensing and regulation, occupational outcomes and pathway advice.

Expandable sections provide detail.

This User Guide still retains the majority of the Companion Volume Implementation Guide (CVIG) as it is valuable information on the training package and its delivery for employers who may not be familiar with all parts of the training package system.

Any feedback on the information provided will be appreciated.

New Sections

Three new sections were written for use in these User Guides and ‘Access and equity considerations’ has been expanded.

Assessor requirements

Assessor requirements is a set of criteria providing guidance on the requirements an assessor must satisfy to be able to certify competency in Building Construction (CPC) and Building Design (CPP) qualifications. Approved by the IRC after an extensive period of consultation.

Recognised prior learning & sequencing

Recognised prior learning & sequencing is an assessment process where learners can seek recognition for formal, informal and non-formal learning to gain credit towards their qualification, satisfy entry requirements and prerequisites.

Assessment must satisfy the Principles of Assessment and Rules of Evidence and all regulatory requirements included within the Standards for Registered Training Organisations current at the time of assessment.

Industry sources recommend specific attention be paid to the rules of evidence in relation to currency and element level mapping. “Current” is considered to be within the immediate two years prior to enrolment. Key areas of attention are provided below:

  • Recognised prior learning based on work experience requires reference to specific current examples addressing individual elements. RPL cannot be based on employment as a Tradesperson, Draftsperson or Architect, Civil Engineer or Structural Engineer alone.
  • Recognised prior learning based on qualifications requires element level mapping at the same or higher AQF Level.
  • Recognised prior learning for these units cannot be based on presentation of an occupational builder’s licence with limitations such as the inability to carry out building works which require mandatory insurance (prohibiting the licence holder to contract to build complete houses),
  • Recognised prior learning for these units cannot be solely based the possession of any qualification or registration as an Architect, Engineer or Building Designer, nor possession of a Qualified Building Supervisor’s Certificate.

Approved by the IRC after an extensive period of consultation.

Purpose of this Guide

This Guide supports the CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package. It has been developed to assist trainers, assessors, Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) and others by providing information about the structure and content of the Training Package, as well as other guidance material.

About training packages

A Training Package is an integrated set of nationally endorsed Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) qualifications, units of competency and their associated assessment requirements for a specific industry, industry sector or enterprise.

Each Training Package:

  • provides a consistent and reliable set of components for training and for recognising and assessing learner skills, and may also have optional support materials
  • enables nationally recognised qualifications to be awarded through direct assessment of workplace competencies
  • encourages the development and delivery of flexible training that suits learner and industry requirements
  • strongly encourages learning and assessment in a work-related environment, which leads to verifiable workplace outcomes.

Training Packages specify the skills and knowledge required to perform effectively in the workplace. They do not prescribe how an individual should be trained. Trainers and supervisors develop learning strategies – the ‘how’ – depending on learner needs, abilities and circumstances.

The Training Package Development and Endorsement Process Policy ensures that qualifications, units of competency and their associated assessment requirements are developed to an agreed quality standard and are responsive to industry’s existing and future demand for new skills.

The following key principles underpin the process:

  • open and inclusive industry-driven improvement, validation and endorsement of Training Packages
  • strong and clear key stakeholder roles with critical points of intervention and consultation

About the construction, plumbing and services sector

In economic terms the construction industry is a major segment of the Australian economy, employing nearly 900 000 people, with half of this workforce in the housing sector. The industry is characterised by contract labour and, with less than three people per firm, the norm is microbusinesses with owners working directly in a trade area, rather than just business management. The trend toward labour hire rather than direct employment is more pronounced in the general construction industry than in any other.

The CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package covers occupations and job roles in general and off-site construction, plumbing and services, from entry level to management.

Technology impacts on this sector in various ways. Building techniques used in the construction industry have undergone changes in recent years, with significant technological advances in prefabrication, energy efficiency and project management. These advancements have affected a wide range of fields from materials (concrete, metal pre-casting and alternative wood products), to management methods (subcontracting, prefabrication and project management), to innovations (robotics, computer-aided design and electronically linked project management teams). The benefits of technological advancement for the industry are seen in increased productivity, new capital equipment and the improved energy efficiency of buildings.

The plumbing and services sector is driven by public health and environmental requirements arising from the water industry and the need for proper sanitation. Sustainable and environmentally friendly practices are also driving the sector. The ongoing need to protect the environment from ozone depleting substances, and the search for alternative energy methods and water-saving measures will require that plumbers of the future address environmental requirements in their everyday activities and that they have the appropriate education and training to enable them to do so.

Key work and training requirements in the industry

Click here to expand

All Training Package components listed in this Guide have been developed to meet the Australian Government’s Standards for Training Packages 2012.

Additionally, all Training Package components listed are reviewed and developed in consultation with industry, RTOs, regulators and State Training Authorities (STAs). This ensures that the training requirements for the industry are met and align with licensing and regulatory needs of each jurisdiction.

Simulated workplace environments

The construction industry strongly encourages practical training of skills and knowledge in the workplace and supports on-the-job and or on-site training delivery or assessment, where appropriate. However, it is noted that training and assessment in the workplace is not always required or possible.

The Assessment Conditions section of the Assessment Requirements states whether assessment must take place in a real workplace or whether a simulated environment can be used.

Simulated workplace environments replicate real workplaces in which RTOs can train and assess the competency of candidates. This means that where units of competency state they can be assessed in a simulated workplace environment, realistic workplace conditions and standards (such as completion of activities within workplace timeframes and/or over a specific period of time), materials, activities, responsibilities (including interactions with other people), procedures, safety requirements, and environmental considerations must be replicated while training and assessing candidates.

Where required, the simulated work environment should involve a range of guided activities that reflect real work experiences. Where simulation is identified in the assessment conditions of a unit of competency it must be realistic and fully replicate the sector work environment.

Simulated workplace environments must meet industry requirements detailed in the units of competency and assessment requirements.

Simulated assessment should:

  • provide access to all the equipment and resources that would normally be used in the workplace for the task being assessed, for example; on-site induction, on-site inspection documents or rectification documentation
  • reflect the type of conditions usually found in the workplace – including interactions with others, responsibilities and interruptions that would typically occur
  • present realistic scenarios and problems
  • require the learner to demonstrate their skills under time constraints and irregularities that would normally apply in the workplace.

Candidates should perform the required skills as a component of multiple tasks, within a multi-disciplinary team and with interruptions, varying operational environments/conditions and unanticipated problems, where described.

Possible simulation strategies

The following represent current examples of simulated training and assessment being undertaken by RTOs:

  • Site office simulator that is set up to mirror the typical administration activities and interactions with various typical site staff.
  • The use of exemplars of real site documentation, drawings, specifications and quality systems. These are linked to photos and/or videos of the actual site as it progresses to completion. Real site exemplars can also be used in preparation for a site visit for on-the-job training and/or assessment and assist the student to quickly adapt to the live environment.
  • ‘Pairing’ of site-based students with externally based students provides both parties with opportunities to learn and share in a simulated /live work environment and breaks down barriers.
  • Setting up a ‘pop up’’ campus of the RTO on a live construction site so that students can easily transition between simulation and on-the-job training and assessment.

Live building and construction workplace

A live building and construction workplace would have all the following characteristics:

  • it would be a project that falls within the scope of the National Construction Code (NCC) classifications specified in the qualification/competency
  • the project would have documentation specific to that project, including:
    • site safety plan
    • contract
    • project plan
    • Gantt chart
    • quality plan
    • environmental plan
    • full project drawings
    • project specifications
    • project budget
    • site administration documentation such as registers, defect reports, diaries, variations.
  • the project would have a designated, licensed builder
  • subcontractors would be engaged, at least in the licenced areas of plumbing and electrical
  • the project site would be restricted by appropriate safety fencing and signage; and admittance would be after formal induction only
  • the project would be subject to local authority or other relevant body for inspection.

Pathways advice

Click here to expand

There are currently no credit arrangements between qualifications in the CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package and higher education qualifications.

The AQF provides a comprehensive, nationally consistent framework for VET qualifications in Australia. The framework helps to provide consistency in the VET sector for all apprentices, trainees, learners, employers and RTOs by enabling recognition of qualifications and Statements of Attainment.

The framework enables flexible pathways that are horizontal (across qualifications at the same AQF level) and vertical (between qualifications at different AQF levels) and eliminates unnecessary and unfair barriers to AQF qualifications.

See the diagram below for CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package training pathways by AQF level.

Building surveying

The CPC60115 Advanced Diploma of Building Surveying and the building surveying skill set, CPCSS00004 Provide building surveying services for residential buildings up to three storeys, provide a pathway to new entrants seeking a career as building surveyors.

Along with the CPC80215 Graduate Diploma of Building Surveying, the building surveying qualifications and skill set also provide a pathway for experienced construction workers looking for a career change and wanting to expand their knowledge of building surveying.

The CPC80215 Graduate Diploma of Building Surveying also provides the opportunity for senior, experienced building surveyors to have their skills and knowledge recognised with a formal qualification.

Building and construction

No apprenticeship pathways are declared for these qualifications, however, the five qualifications have been redesigned and streamed to minimise duplication and strengthen pathway options, within and from, building and construction occupations, such as the construction pathways or carpentry and joinery qualifications.

These qualifications do not have any entry requirements, enabling multiple entry and exit points across the suite of qualifications. Units of competency that address underpinning skills and knowledge have been included as core units to enable movement between sectors.

The two Certificate IV qualifications have been designed to enable the following specialised occupational pathways, depending on the electives chosen:

CPC40120 Certificate IV in Building and Construction enables two specialised occupational outcomes reflected as:

  • CPC40120 Certificate IV in Building and Construction (Builder)
  • CPC40120 Certificate IV in Building and Construction (Site Manager)

CPC41120 Certificate IV in Building Project Support enables two specialised occupational outcomes reflected as:

  • CPC41120 Certificate IV in Building Project Support (Estimator)
  • CPC41120 Certificate IV in Building Project Support (Contract Administrator).

Licensing and regulation

Regulation and licensing requirements implications for implementation

Regulatory, licensing and legislative requirements are outlined in the Qualification Description of each qualification and in the Application of each unit of competency.

Where there are no licensing, legislative or certification requirements applicable to a unit of competency the following is included in the Qualification Description/Application:

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this qualification/unit at the time of publication.

Licensing, legislative and certification requirements in the construction and plumbing industries can differ between states and territories. In these cases, users are advised to consult with the relevant regulatory
authority.

RTOs are responsible for ensuring that delivery and assessment incorporates the appropriate licensing, legislative and certification requirements.

Work health and safety

Advice on any health and safety implications in the industry

Where required, health and safety elements have been addressed in the qualification and units of competency of the CPC Construction, Plumbing and Service Training Package.

Legal requirements for learners in the workplace or involved in work experience that apply to industry-specific sectors covered in the CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package vary across each state and territory and can change from time to time.

Users should contact the relevant state or territory training authority provided at the end of this Guide to check if legal requirements apply.

Assessment Conditions may stipulate that assessment must be undertaken in a workplace environment. There are a number of ways this may be facilitated:

  • The learner may already be an existing worker in the industry.
  • The RTO assessor may accompany (groups of) learners on arranged workplace visits for the purpose of assessment.
  • Learners may undertake work placement with an employer. The assessor may visit the workplace to directly observe performance or engage with the workplace to gather necessary evidence.

Work placements should always involve appropriate supervision and guidance from individuals in the workplace as well as from RTO trainers and assessors and must adhere to required legislation that applies in the jurisdiction. For example, RTOs and employers must ensure that learners meet appropriate WHS requirements while on a construction site.

To successfully conduct training and/or assessment in the workplace, the RTO must clearly identify training, monitoring and/or assessment roles and responsibilities of the RTO and the workplace parties, as required by Standard 1 and Standard 5.1– 5.4 of the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015.

Unless assessment methods (such as direct observation of performance by the assessor) are stipulated in the Assessment Conditions section of the Assessment Requirements associated with each unit of competency, RTOs should develop assessment methods for gathering required evidence as part of their training and assessment strategy relevant to their circumstances.

The Australian Skills Quality Authority website also provides information to assist RTOs in developing assessment strategies, which may include work placements, including:

Apprenticeships and traineeships are formal training arrangements between an employer and an employee that have been established by a state or territory training authority. Where a qualification is used for an apprenticeship or traineeship, the training must be recognised by the state or territory training authority. This includes the form and registration of indenture.

Recognised prior learning & sequencing

Click here to expand

Recognised prior learning is an assessment process as part of the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) allowing students to receive recognition for previous competency outcomes. Recognised prior learning encompasses formal, informal and non-formal learning, and if successful can reduce the duration of a qualification and potentially satisfy entry requirements and pre-requisites. The credit outcomes of recognised prior learning are specific to the individual’s circumstance.

Source: https://www.aqf.edu.au/sites/aqf/files/rpl-explanation.pdf

Assessment must satisfy the Principles of Assessment and Rules of Evidence and all regulatory requirements included within the Standards for Registered Training Organisations current at the time of assessment.

Industry sources recommend specific attention be paid to the rules of evidence in relation to currency and element level mapping. “Current” is considered to be within the immediate two years prior to enrolment. Key areas of attention are provided below:

  • Recognised prior learning based on work experience requires reference to specific current examples addressing individual elements. RPL cannot be based on employment as a Tradesperson, Draftsperson or Architect, Civil Engineer or Structural Engineer alone.
  • Recognised prior learning based on qualifications requires element level mapping at the same or higher AQF Level.
  • Recognised prior learning for these units cannot be based on presentation of an occupational builder’s licence with limitations such as the inability to carry out building works which require mandatory insurance (prohibiting the licence holder to contract to build complete houses),
  • Recognised prior learning for these units cannot be solely based the possession of any qualification or registration as an Architect, Engineer or Building Designer, nor possession of a Qualified Building Supervisor’s Certificate.

Information on key features of the Training Package and the industry that will impact on the selection of training pathways

Click here to expand

To meet the demands of industry and the requirements of VET stakeholders, Training Packages and their qualifications, units of competency and assessment requirements are subject to change, including continuous improvement processes.

Users are advised to check training.gov.au for the latest release of the CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package. Further releases of this Training Package will occur as more qualifications, skill sets and units of competency are transitioned into the CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package from the CPC08 Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package.

Maintaining currency in the CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package

For trainers to deliver training and assessors to assess candidate performance against units of competency from the CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package they will need to maintain currency in terms of their knowledge, skills, industry experience and licensing, legislative or certification requirements.

It is strongly recommended that, to maintain their vocational currency, trainers and assessors should have undertaken work experience or professional development related to the industry sector for the respective qualification within two years prior to their involvement in delivery and/or assessment.

Assessment conditions

The assessment requirements for each unit of competency contains an Assessment Conditions section that lists a range of assessment conditions, typically under the following categories:

  • equipment
  • materials
  • specifications
  • relationships with team members and supervisor
  • relationship with clients.

Where assessment is conducted in an actual worksite, safety and workplace induction requirements for RTO staff and learners will apply. In these situations, RTOs must ensure that any requirements are met to access and operate on the worksite. This may include the safe handling and operation of plant, equipment and materials.

Learner verification: online training and assessment

CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry does not preclude online delivery although, it should be noted, that the industry recommendation for the minimum time in terms of training and assessment is six hours.

Where an online delivery approach is used by RTOs it is recommended that significant efforts be made to ensure the identity of the learner throughout the process. The industry advises that an appropriate level of identity verification is referenced as in the National Identity Proofing Guidelines, specifically the ‘gold standard’ level of assurance 4 (very high).

For further details: https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/criminal-justice/files/national-identity-proofing-guidelines.pdf.


Access and equity considerations

Click here to expand

An individual’s access to the assessment process must be bias-free and should not be adversely affected by restrictions placed on the location or context of assessment beyond the requirements specified in the CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package.

Training Packages must reflect and cater for the increasing diversity of Australia’s VET clients and Australia’s current and future workforce. The flexibility offered by Training Packages should enhance opportunities and potential outcomes for all people so that we can all benefit from a wider national skills base and a shared contribution to Australia’s economic development, and social and cultural life.

Reasonable adjustment

It is important that RTOs take meaningful, transparent and reasonable steps to consult on, consider and implement reasonable adjustments for learners who experience disadvantage.

Under the Disability Standards for Education 2005, education providers must make reasonable adjustments for people with a disability to the maximum extent that those adjustments do not cause that provider unjustifiable hardship. While ‘reasonable adjustment’ and ‘unjustifiable hardship’ are different concepts and involve different considerations, they both seek to strike a balance between the interests of education providers and the interests of people with and without a disability.

An adjustment is any measure or action that a learner requires because of their disability and which has the effect of assisting the learner to access and participate in education and training on the same basis as those without a disability. An adjustment is reasonable if it achieves this purpose while considering factors such as the nature of the learner’s disability, the views of the learner, the potential effect of the adjustment on the learner and others who might be affected, and the costs and benefits of making the adjustment.

An education provider is also entitled to maintain the academic integrity of a course or program and to consider the requirements or components that are inherent or essential to its nature when assessing whether an adjustment is reasonable.

The Disability Standards for Education 2005 and the Disability Standards for Education Guidance Notes may be downloaded at http://education.gov.au/disability-standards-education.

Indigenous learners

When delivering this Training Package to Indigenous Australian’s, trainers and assessors should make themselves aware of equity considerations to ensure Aboriginal Australians have equal opportunity to attain competency. Experiences of mainstream society and education can vary for Aboriginal Australian’s due to their history of marginalised treatment, and in some cases additional or alternative measures must be explored to cultivate a positive learning environment. Respecting and empowering the Aboriginal experience requires engaging with Aboriginal culture on a meaningful level, and for guidance in this area it is recommended to communicate with local Elders and senior Aboriginal community members to understand potential issues in the training and delivery of the Training Package.

Foundation skills

Foundation skills are the non-technical skills that support an individual’s participation in the workplace, in the community and in education and training.

In this Training Package (and all Training Packages developed by Artibus Innovation) the foundation skills incorporate the language, literacy and numeracy (LLN) skills described in the Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF).

The skills included in the ACSF are:

  • learning
  • reading
  • writing
  • oral communication
  • numeracy.

Where foundations skills essential to performance in a unit are explicit, the following statement will be included under the foundation skills field: Foundation skills essential to performance are explicit in the performance criteria of this unit of competency. Where foundation skills essential to performance in a unit are not explicit, then they will be listed in the foundation skills field in that unit.
