Project: Building and Construction


Stage 5

The Building and Construction project has looked at a number of qualifications at a Certificate IV level or higher, covering work such as estimating, contract administration, and management. The current qualifications are:

  • Certificate IV in Building and Construction (Sales)
  • Certificate IV in Building and Construction (Specialist Trades)
  • Certificate IV in Building and Construction (Trade Contracting)
  • Certificate IV in Building and Construction (Building)
  • Certificate IV in Building and Construction (Contract Administration)
  • Certificate IV in Building and Construction (Estimating)
  • Certificate IV in Building and Construction (Site Management)
  • Diploma of Building and Construction (Management)
  • Advanced Diploma of Building and Construction (Management).

Qualification changes

In keeping with COAG's directive to reduce redundant and duplicated qualifications, we have 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 will be deleted:

  • 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) has been merged with CPC40508 Certificate IV in Building and Construction (Site Management). Each qualification is superseded by and equivalent to CPC40120 Certificate IV in Building and Construction.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 been merged. Each qualification is superseded by and equivalent to CPC40320 Certificate IV in Building Project Support.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

Unit changes

New units

Two new units of competency have been developed to meet industry needs: 

  • CPCCBC4052 Lead and manage teams in the building and construction industry
  • CPCCBC5019 Manage building and construction business finances

Deleted units

Two units are proposed for deletion. 

  • CPCCBC4025A Manage personal work priorities and professional development
  • CPCCBC3024A Apply codes and standards to building trade and services contracting

Merged units

CPCCBC4003A Select and prepare a construction contract has been merged with CPCCBC4016A Administer a construction contract. These units have been superseded by and are equivalent to CPCCBC4003 Select, prepare and administer a construction contract.

CPCCBC4010A Apply structural principles to residential low rise constructions has been merged with CPCCBC4011B Apply structural principles to commercial low rise constructions. These units are superseded by and equivalent to CPCCBC4010 Apply structural principles to residential and commercial constructions.

Split unit

CPCCBC4001A Apply building codes and standards to the construction process for low rise building projects has been split into two:

  • CPCCBC4053 Apply building codes and standards to the construction process for Class 2 to 9, Type C buildings
  • CPCCBC4001 Apply building codes and standards to the construction process for Class 1 and 10 buildings

Each new unit supersedes and is equivalent to the old one:

Updated units

All units within these qualifications have been updated to address new technologies and techniques, regulatory and licensing requirements in all jurisdictions, and the requirements of the National Construction Code.
