Proposed qualification changes

In keeping with COAG's directive to reduce redundant and duplicated qualifications, the IRC has reviewed enrolment and completion rates and sought industry advice on ways to streamline the range of qualifications. Based on this advice, a number of changes are proposed.

Deleted qualifications

Three qualifications are proposed for deletion:

  • 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

Merged qualifications

CPC40110 Certificate IV in Building and Construction (Building) and CPC40508 Certificate IV in Building and Construction (Site Management) have both been proposed for deletion and replacement by a merged qualification. If the proposal is endorsed, each qualification will be superseded by and equivalent to CPC40120 Certificate IV in Building and Construction. 

CPC40208 Certificate IV in Building and Construction (Contract Administration) and CPC40308 Certificate IV in Building and Construction (Estimating) have both been proposed for deletion and replacement by a merged qualification.  If the proposal is endorsed, each qualification will be superseded by and equivalent to CPC40320 Certificate IV in Building Project Support.

Updated qualifications

Three qualifications have been updated and have a change of code, but keep the same title. 

  • CPC50220 Diploma of Building and Construction (Building) supersedes and is equivalent to CPC50210
  • CPC50320 Diploma of Building and Construction (Management) supersedes and is non-equivalent to CPC50308
  • CPC60220 Advanced Diploma of Building and Construction (Management) supersedes and is equivalent to CPC60212
