You may have been working on the tools as a builder, carpenter, bricklayer, electrician… and now wish to ‘get off the tools’. You can now move into a Supervisory, Project management, and estimating or Management role.
Each bigger construction job requires someone to be nominated as a Person (not on the tools) overseeing the job and project managing it.
With the high growth rate expected for Construction, there will be lots more of these jobs available.
Your experience counts – Complete a Diploma of Project Management (or a dual qual with Leadership and Management)
No sorry. If you are looking to get your Builders Licence, then you need to check with your state licencing body as to what qualifications you need. Often it is a Certificate IV or Diploma of building and construction (building) which we do not offer.
There are four major types of construction:
• Residential Building…
• Institutional and Commercial Building…
• Specialized Industrial Construction…
• Infrastructure and Heavy Construction…
Construction firms primarily construct buildings, roads, railroads, harbour or river works, transmission lines, pipelines and oil refineries. These firms are also involved in civil engineering and irrigation projects, and construct water, gas, electricity and sewerage infrastructure. Some construction firms also carry out repairs and renovations, prepare mine sites, install utilities, and take part in demolitions and excavations.
