Project: Construction Pathways

Stage 3

On behalf of the Construction, Plumbing and Services IRC, Artibus Innovation is reviewing and developing the following training package components:

  • 3 qualifications:
    • CPC10111 Certificate I in Construction
    • CPC20112 Certificate II in Construction
    • CPC20211 Certificate II in Construction Pathways

Certificate I and II construction qualifications provide an opportunity for learners to develop skills and experiences in a range of construction skills.

Certificate I in Construction provides an introduction to construction industry job roles and expectations and the use of basic tools and materials and is suitable for VET in schools programs and for other learners seeking an introduction to construction work skills.

Certificate II in Construction Pathways provides an introduction to traditional trade qualifications such as carpentry, bricklaying and plastering and can be a stepping stone into learning these trades. Certificate II in Construction can play a similar transitional role, and is also suitable as an endpoint qualification, for example, for those seeking general skills as a builders labourer.

Four construction workers

A technical advisory group (TAG) of industry experts has been working to update these qualifications to support the current and anticipated needs of the construction industry.. A round of consultation was conducted in April 2019. Based on feedback received, a number of changes have been made:

  • Qualifications have been updated to better support progression into trade qualifications.
  • The Certificate II in Construction Pathways has been updated to include a stream in remote area building.
  • New units have been developed:
    • CPCCCM1017 Prepare simple construction sketches
    • CPCCCM2013 Undertake basic installation of wall tiles.

The updated qualifications are expected to be submitted to the Australian Industry and Skills Committee on 3 December 2019.
